Grilled Chicken Souvlaki – Closet Cooking

Grilled Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce
Of all the great meals that I had on my vacation in Greece a few years ago perhaps the most memorable one was the chicken gyros from a small shop in Plaka. The shop was so small that it was really just a window in the street where you ordered and then you got to eat while walking down the street. The gyro was easily the best that I have ever had! What stood out about the chicken gyros was that there was roasted red peppers layered in amongst the chicken.

Proper gyro meat is cooked on a vertical rotisserie with layer upon layer of chicken and it would not be very feasible to make at home but you can certainly reproduce the flavours! In general a gyro consists of the rotisserie meat, tomatoes, onions and tzatziki all wrapped up in a pita. In place of the rotisserie style gyro meat I decided to go with some grilled chicken souvlaki . Souvlaki is basically grilled skewered meat (Who doesn’t love that?) that is marinated in a lemon, garlic and oregano marinade and it works really well in gyros! Making the chicken souvlaki is dead easy, you simply mix the marinade, marinate the chicken and grill! Whenever I make this I am taken back to that trip to Greece on the streets in Plaka with the gyros with chicken, tomatoes, onions, tzatziki and the roasted red peppers.

Update (July 30 2015): Since I was making grilled chicken souvlaki I took the opportunity to update the photos for this recipe!
