Grilled Chicken Souvlaki Recipe On A Stick

A delicious fall apart tender chicken you can serve with cucumber sauce or hot sauce your choice!

 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
 1 juiced fresh lemon ( around 1/4 cup)
 1 teaspoon garlic powder
 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
 4 boneless chicken breast cut into chunks (approximately 1 1/2 pounds)
 approximately 1 teaspoon each, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, lots of oregano around 2 tablespoon

Place chicken chunks in a medium size bowl. Sprinkle with olive oil over the top, squeeze entire lemon over the olive oil. Shake oregano generously over the top of the chicken and add salt and pepper to your taste. I also like heat so I add a couple of shakes of cayenne pepper.

Marinate for 1 hour. Thread the chicken onto wooden skewers and grill 5 minutes on each side or till browned and delicious! You will love these! Serve with cucumber sauce or your favorite hot sauce!


CUCUMBER SAUCE:

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup chopped peeled cucumber
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dill weed
1 garlic clove, peeled, minced fine
Dash salt
Mix together serve with chicken.

What a fabulous photo, Claudia. I know I'd love these. Haven't met a chicken I didn't like. As for Rachel's spinach and artichoke mac n'cheese, my photo didn't do it justice. It really was quite good.

We will soon be getting a gas grill and I am excited. We have a charcoal but preparing the fire is too time consuming. I have saved this recipe for use on my new gas grill-Yum. Thanks for sharing.
