This recipe for chicken souvlaki includes delicious spiced chicken, served with crunchy lettuce in a pita bread. Of course with a delicious dollop of homemade tzatziki sauce.
Souvlaki is a typical Greek dish. It is made from either lamb, pork or chicken. It is eaten grilled over a charcoal fire and most of the times in Greece with pita bread. And that is exactly what we are going to do with the Greek buffet.
The souvlaki let deliciously marinated with herbs, honey and lemon. In addition, we serve a homemade tzatziki sauce.
- you add lemon juice to the marinade, the meat is nice and tender. But don't marinate longer then 20 minutes. The lemon will break down the meat to far and it could fall apart.
