Grilled chicken souvlaki with tzatziki dipping sauce

Put the grill to use this summer with Greta's almost authentic (but simple!) Greek chicken skewers!

8 skewers

Greek grilled chicken



Tzatziki Sauce


In a large bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients until well blended. Add chicken pieces and stir to coat evenly with marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

While chicken in marinating, make tzatziki sauce. Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Thread chicken, bell peppers and onions onto skewers, beginning and ending with chicken. Gah! I hate this part. Kinda messy. But worth it.

Lightly oil grill racks. Place skewers on racks and grill for 10 to 12 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure even cooking. Serve hot with tzatziki sauce.

If using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for at least an hour before using to prevent burning.

The honey doesn’t make the sauce sweet, it just lessens the tang of the Greek yogurt. Feel free to leave it out.

YUM: For a less tangy tzatziki, use sour cream instead of Greek yogurt.

YUMMER: Serve with lightly grilled, whole grain pita bread, hummus and a leafy green salad for a fabulous, Greek-style feast!
