Just Add Lemons: My Greek Lemon Chicken Souvlaki Adventure

Crikey, you know you’ve hit the jackpot when the zesty fragrance of Greek Lemon Chicken Souvlaki hits my aromatic senses. As a chicken recipe aficionado, there’s nothing that lights my fire quite like this mediterranean masterpiece.

Right off the bat, let’s get one thing straight. If you think you can whip up a mean souvlaki without the freshest ingredients, you’re barking up the wrong tree! A proper souvlaki is all about quality, from plump free-range chickens to the brightest, juiciest lemons.

Now, onto my favorite part – getting down and dirty in my humble kitchen. I bask in the process, marinating tender chicken pieces in a tangy concoction of lemon, garlic, oregano, and olive oil. I tell ya, this blend puts the ‘magic’ in this magical potion. Patience is key, folks. Let those flavors properly mingle – no half-baked job here, I implore ya!

Skewer those marinated morsels like your grandma used to – with love and care. Ah, the anticipation is torture, but a cheat’s method, this ain’t. Grilling them until golden, I’m eagerly poised, tongs in hand. I can already taste the smoky goodness in my mouth, feel the heat tickling my tongue. Wowza, is this what heaven feels like?

Before you can bob’s your uncle, juicy, zesty, smoky souvlaki is ready to steal your heart. There you have it, folks, food is my love language, and Greek Lemon Chicken Souvlaki is my Shakespearean sonnet. Trust me, once you go Greek, there’s no turning back!

Cluck, Pluck, Luck: Your Chicken Masterpiece Awaits!

– Prepare the marinade by squeezing the juice of 2 large fresh lemons into a bowl.
– To that, add 3-4 minced cloves of garlic, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of coriander seeds, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and a pinch of fresh ground black pepper.
– Pour in 1/4 cup of high-quality extra virgin olive oil.
– Stir all the ingredients together until well combined.
– Cut 2 large chicken breasts into 1-inch chunks – you should get around 20 pieces.
– Place the chicken pieces in the bowl with the marinade. Stir until all pieces are fully coated.
– Cover the bowl with a cling film and refrigerate at least an hour or, even better, overnight to let the chicken soak in all the delicious flavors.
– Thread 5 pieces of chicken onto each skewer. Make sure there is a little gap between the chicken pieces for even cooking.
– Preheat a grill or cast-iron grill pan over medium heat.
– Place the skewers on the grill or grill pan.
– Turn the skewers every few minutes for even cooking. Continue cooking until the chicken is fully cooked and golden brown on all sides.
– Squeeze a bit more fresh lemon juice over the cooked chicken skewers immediately when they come off the grill.
– Sprinkle with a bit of salt and serve your delightful Greek Lemon Chicken Souvlaki with tzatziki sauce and warm flatbreads on the side. Enjoy!
