This Greek Chicken Souvlaki is very easy to make with only a few pantry ingredients, requires no marinating time and tastes like you ordered from a restaurant! You can cook it on the stove top or on the grill, eat it as a souvlaki wrap with pita bread, on a bed of rice or on it's own, dipped in tzatziki sauce. It's Weight Watchers friendly @ 2 WW points on blue on it's own and 5 WW points as a wrap.
Put chicken onto skewers. *If you are grilling these on an outdoor BBQ grill, you'll want to soak them for 10 minutes in cold water first (so they don't catch on fire).
Continue to add chicken pieces to skewers until they are all gone. You should get about 8 skewers. Then add skewers to a long shallow dish. I use a 9X13 baking pan *You can use smaller skewers for the pita wraps and longer skewers for the plain souvlaki
Mix garlic powder, lemon juice, oil, salt, white pepper and oregano together, then stir and pour over souvlaki skewers. Rotate to ensure skewers are well coated in the marinade.
Add skewers to non-stick fry pan, cooking as many as you can fit at once (usually about 4 per frying pan).
Fry over medium heat on stovetop or on grill, turning periodically until lightly browned on all sides, for about 12-15 minutes or until cooked through (no longer pink).
If you want as stronger lemon flavor, drizzle additional fresh lemon juice on top.
Sprinkle with additional dried oregano, if desired.
*NOTE: When I calculated the WW points in this recipe, I only accounted for ½ of the oil, as that's all the gets absorbed.🎥 Video: How to wrap a souvlakiMy Amazon Recommendations (affiliate links)⭐ ReviewsDid you make this recipe?
