Souvlaki Chicken

We were so fortunate to spend several weeks in Oregon with family this summer, it was really a lot of fun cooking in my daughters kitchen and making some of her favorite meals.  A new recipe that I made for her is this awesome Souvlaki Chicken, it is delicious and we all loved it, hope you enjoy it.

Souvlaki Chicken with Tzatziki Sauce



Souvlaki Chicken
Miz Helen's Kitchen
2 to 2 1/2 pounds of Chicken Tenders
Marinade
2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill leaves
1 tablespoon chopped Garlic
2 teaspoon Basil
1 teaspoon Oregano
1 teaspoon thyme
3 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Tzatziki Sauce
1 cup Greek or plain yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 small cucumber, diced
2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill leaves
Dash Hot Sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste
Chicken:
Chop the Chicken Tenders in bite size pieces
Marinade
In large bowl whisk together all the Souvlaki Marinade ingredients. Add the chicken and toss to coat.
Cover and let marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and add to the pan. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes.

In a medium bowl combine all the Tzatziki Sauce ingredients and set aside.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving
Serve with Chicken, it is delicious!
