View Full Version : Need Chicken Souvlaki Recipe (6/02)

07-24-2002, 10:25 AM
I took this recipe with me when I went to visit my parents in Tennessee. They loved it so much that I just left my copy out there. My poor husband has been eating nothing but bachelor food while I've been gone (cereal, toast, frozen meals, etc.) and I would love to cook this for him tonight. Can someone please post this recipe for me?

Here's another request!!

I did not clip this recipe, but the reviews are so good that I'd like to have it too!

The recipe is contained in this thread, along with everyone's reviews and substitutions! :D

I don't see the recipe on that thread--only the turkey gyros recipe (which also looks great!)

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic, divided
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
3 cups cubed peeled cucumber (about 3 cucumbers)
1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons chopped pitted kalamata olives
2 ripe tomatoes, cored and cut into 1-inch

1/4 cup grated peeled cucumber
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

The elements of a classic Greek salad and a chicken souvlaki sandwich combine in this piquant dish. You can also use lamb in place of the chicken.

Total time: 40 minutes

1. Preheat grill or broiler.

2. Combine 1 teaspoon garlic and the next 6 ingredients (1 teaspoon garlic through chicken breast) in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal the bag and shake to coat. Remove chicken from the bag. Grill or broil chicken 5 minutes on each side or until done. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces.

3. Combine chicken, cubed cucumber, and the next 4 ingredients (cubed cucumber through tomatoes) in a large bowl. Combine yogurt and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over chicken mixture; toss well. Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 cups).

red face :o
For what it's worth, we LOVED the turkey gyros. Passed the test with DH (red meat lover) and DS (almost-13-y/o who would prefer fast food). The cucumber sauce is great.
