Ingredients

  • 10,5 oz fresh chicken breast (350 g)
  • ¼ cup olive oil (60 ml
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 slices fresh lemon
  • 1 60 ml garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • pepper
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Let’s first marinate the chicken. Dice the fresh chicken breast into bite-size bits and add them to a large plastic ziplock bag. Peel the garlic clove and chop it up very finely. Add the chopped garlic to the chicken in the plastic bag together with the fresh lemon juice, the slices of fresh lemon, the olive oil and the dried oregano. Season with a good dash of pepper and salt.

  3. Squeeze out the excess air and seal the bag well. Move the chicken bits and the marinade around a bit to divide the ingredients evenly. Place the bag in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Right before you assemble the chicken souvlaki skewers and grill them, prepare the Greek tzatziki yogurt dip: find my tzatziki recipe below!
