Greeks are crazy about chicken souvlaki. like me. And after you try it, you will too!
Easy to prepare and packed with classic Greek flavor. Skewer chicken marinated in lemon, garlic and dried oregano. Served with homemade tzatziki wrapped in flatbread. Or, in my case, a simple homemade yeast-free flatbread!
“Do it fast and easy,” I said to myself. “Your to-do list is out of control right now. They don’t have time to blog things that take too long.
I marinated the chicken and sat down at my Mac to do other chores. But I couldn’t concentrate.
I felt an itch. not really. Metaphorically speaking. I thought, “Let’s make a flatbread with chicken souvlaki.”
So I decided to make Easy Soft her flatbread.
I wrapped up my flatbread to keep it warm and sat down at my Mac. I clicked “create new post” and stared at a blank screen. I couldn’t write. Again there was a tingling sensation of dissatisfaction. “I wish I could make a Greek salad out of this. I need more salad on my side. It also looks bright and nice in photos. It didn’t even occur to me for a second that I had just made a flatbread so I wouldn’t have to go to the store.
Then, while chopping up a Greek salad, another thought came to me.
Yes, it is. I also made lemon rice.
So you have it. This “quick chicken souvlaki” recipe I wanted to make turned out to be a complete Greek feast.
That’s typical of me. I tend to get a little overwhelmed when an idea pops into my head.
And that meant my “little easy recipe” turned into a long day of cooking/shooting/cleaning, but boy, was it worth it. . It was worth working late into the night to do all the things that should be done during the day so I can share this with you.
