This is such an easy and delicious recipe. It does take marinating, but it’s quick, simple, and with ingredients you (most likely) have on hand.
Eric and I have been eating a dinner of chicken/fish with rice/noodles and a veggie side for the better part of two weeks. I was craving something with a bolder flavor when I remembered this recipe I’ve been cooking for years.
Since I didn’t have every ingredient on hand, and was making less servings, I adjusted the recipe (shown below).
Chicken Souvlaki Gyro-Style
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/3 cup Kraft Greek with Feta & Oregano salad dressing
1.5 tbsp lemon juice
0.5 tbsp dried oregano
1 small garlic clove, minced
A couple sprinkles of Greek seasoning
Drizzle of olive oil
A few healthy sprinkles of salt and black pepper
Combine all ingredients (except the chicken breasts) in a bowl.
Place the chicken breasts in a bag or dish and pour the marinade on top of them. Leave in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, up to 24 hours.
Heat a frying pan on high. When hot, place chicken breasts on pan. Let the breasts sear on each side for 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium and cook for another 6-8 minutes.
Let the chicken rest on paper towels for a couple of minutes. Slice the chicken length-wise, place in wraps, and let diners add the toppings they wish. Eric and I used cucumber, lettuce, and a poor man’s tzatziki sauce (sour cream sprinkled with garlic powder).
We’ll be having them again tomorrow and I’m going to add some crumbled bacon and green olives to mine.
