1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Garlic, Granulated
1/2 cup Grapeseed Oil
2 tsp Kosher Salt
1 1/2 tbsp Oregano
1 tbsp Parsley, Chopped
4 Pita or Flatbread, brushed with oil and dried oregano
Red Onion, Sliced Thinly
2 cups Tzatziki Sauce
Fresh and flavorful, this Grilled Greek Chicken Souvlaki will bring the taste of the Mediterranean to your backyard. Souvlaki means simply “meat on skewers,” and is typically used to describe marinated meat that’s grilled on skewers and served in a warm pita. This version is marinated in lemon and spices, then grilled to perfection and tucked inside a pita with homemade Tzatziki sauce, fresh tomatoes, olives and red onions.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together yogurt, sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar, dried dill, salt, and granulated garlic. Fold in grated cucumber, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to use (up to 5 days).
The subtle smoky flavor of New England Apple Hardwood Pellets will help prevent it from overpowering the delicate flavors from the Tzatziki sauce and the chicken marinade.
This recipe is equally delicious when made with Lamb. You only need to cook it to medium rare.
