hi there
i am constantly trying to recreate dishes that i have and love in restaurants and i recently tried chicken souvlaki for the first time and have come up with a recipe i that i thinks pretty good and must share


1 1/2 Tb fresh oregano, julienned
1/4 c fresh lemon juice
1/2 olive oil
salt and pepper
garlic minced finely (use however much you'd like, I used 3 cloves)
1/3 c red wine
plum tomatoes, diced
red onion
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, roughly cubed into bite size pieces
2 cups homemade or store bought tzatziki
naan bread

Add the first  six ingredients into a bowl or a zip lock bag, add your chicken into the marinade. I only let mine sit for 20 minutes because i'm impatient but 3-6 hours should be good enough. 
After it's marinaded for a bit, place on an oiled grill (i used a hamilton beach/george forman) with red onions and grill until golden brown.  I like to heat my naan bread up in the oven because it is a bit dry, and it tastes good warm.  Spread tzatziki on your naan, sprinkle tomatos on top and then place your chicken and onions on top. you can roll it as a wrap or just eat it like a pizza!

Hope you enjoy!!!

I think you can put anything on naan and it will taste good, but that's a good and easy recipe, for sure! I'm also an impatient marinator. I usually cook the marinade down when I'm done with it and use it as a drizzle.

I made a dish inspired by this the other night and it was really good. I used a wok instead of a grill and added aspargus and green beans to the chicken and onions. I didn' marinate it at all because I am really, really impatient. It turned out delicious, though! Thanks for the inspiration!

I'm working on getting my blog up, check it out! Smiley
