Chicken Souvlaki is one of my favorite Greek foods ever; the reason is very simple: I just love chicken skewer on a stick, grilled to perfection, moist, juicy and flavorful!
This past spring break, I had the opportunity to have a ton of chicken Souvlaki while traveling in Greece.
They were heavenly.
In Santorini, I had the most perfect version of Souvlaki.
They were labeled as Greek Chicken Stick on the English menu.
Every skewer was perfectly charred.
They were absolutely tantalizing and mouthwatering.
I had them almost every day, despite the long line waiting for the order.
Fast forward a few months into summer, I decided to make my own.
I had a sudden craving and needed my fix.
So I got some chicken breast, seasoned the meat with ingredients such as olive oil, lemon juice, yogurt, garlic, and grill the chicken sticks on the outdoor grill.
The smell made my stomach rumbled and the end result transported me back to Greece.
This is a great recipe, try it!
