Thursday, July 14, 2011


Chicken Souvlaki features the fresh-tasting combination of lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil that is so prevalent in Greek cuisine. Serve it alongside a Greek salad of chunked tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and feta cheese. Tzatziki is a traditional Greek yogurt-based sauce flavored with lemon, garlic, and crisp cucumbers.

YIELD: 2 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and about 1/4 cup tzatziki sauce)



Souvlaki:3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano2 teaspoons olive oil

Cooking spray
Tzatziki Sauce:1/2 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded, and shredded
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt1 garlic clove, minced


Method:

  2. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Thread the chicken and zucchini, alternately onto each of 4 (8-inch) skewers.
  3. Heat a grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add skewers; cook 8 minutes or until chicken is done, turning once.
