Directions for: Lemon Garlic Chicken Souvlaki


8 10-inch (25 cm) bamboo skewers

4 clove garlic, minced

½ cup dry white wine

¼ cup Krinos olive oil

2 tsp Krinos oregano

2 tsp lemon zest

2 Tbsp lemon juice

½ tsp chili flakes (optional)

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1½ inch (4 cm) cubes (about 1-1/2 lbs/750 g)

2 large red onions, cut into 1½ inch (4 cm) cubes

salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Krinos Tzatziki sauce


1. In a pan, soak bamboo skewers in water. (This will prevent them from burning on the barbecue.)

2. In a large bowl, combine garlic, wine, oil, oregano, lemon zest, lemon juice, chili flakes (if using), salt and pepper to taste.

3. Add chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or for up to 3 hours.

4. Pre-heat barbecue grill to high for 10 minutes.

5. Thread chicken onto skewers alternating with chunks of red onion

6. Reduce heat to medium-high and place skewers on greased grill. Grill for 7 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked and no longer pink inside, turning once.

7. Serve with Krinos Tzatziki sauce and enjoy!
