Ingredients

Chicken souvlaki:

  • 4 large chicken breasts cut into kabob-size piece
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Other:

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • Tomatoes to taste
  • Cucumber to taste
  • Tzatziki to taste (click for recipe or use store-bought)
  • Red onions to taste
  • Kalamata olives to taste (optional)

Instructions

  • Prep your chicken and add it to large bowl or ZipLoc along with the oil, oregano, lemon, garlic, and salt & pepper. Marinate for at least 30 minutes (keep it in the fridge, especially if you go longer than 30 min). 
  • Prep your other ingredients and cook the quinoa according to package directions, and set it aside to cool when it's done.
  • To grill the chicken, grease the grate and pre-heat your grill to high. Thread the chicken on wooden or metal skewers (it's a good idea to soak wood ones first so they don't splinter and burn as easily). Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook the chicken for about 15 minutes total time (or until it's cooked through), turning every few minutes. I used a gas BBQ, cooking the chicken with the lid down. A grill pan would work too (adjust cooking time as needed). 
  • Assemble bowls and refrigerate for up to 5 days. 

Notes

  • You can use any/all of my other ingredient suggestions - use what works for you. You could definitely swap the quinoa for rice or skip it altogether. 
  • I served tzatziki on the side because it tends to dry out if you spoon some over the chicken, for example. I suggest keeping it in a sealed container(s) and adding it to the bowl before serving.
