Its Greek night in my house apparently. I was feeling very inspired, and make Chicken Souvlaki and Spanikopita, and sautéed Zucchini...
I'll share the Spanikopita recipe another time, but here is a picture of it fresh from the Oven:
For the Chicken Souvlaki:
1/4 cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
Zest of 1 Lemon
1/4 cup EVOO (extra Virgin Olive Oil)
5 gloves of Garlic -minced
Dill and Oregano (I apparently ran out of Oregano, so I just used the Dill)
4-6 Chicken Breasts, Cubed
wooden skewers (soak them for a few hours before you plan on cooking with them, otherwise they can scorch in your oven)
Combine all the Ingredients above in a Ziploc bag and let marinate for at least an hour. Turning as often as you like... but at least once so everything gets as evenly coated as possible.
When done marinating, lace the chicken onto the skewers
Put on a baking dish and bake in a 375F oven for about half an hour (until the chicken is cooked)
Then transfer to a frying pan, on high heat, to help brown and crisp up the outside.
Serve with Tzatziki sauce and whatever else you chose. (Like Zucchini and Spanikopita)
