Diva Tasting: Greek Kabobs With Tzatziki…

Greek Kabobs # # (Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki )
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Sauce:
  • 1 (6 ounce) container plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/2 cucumber – peeled, seeded, and grated
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 6 wooden skewers, or as needed
Directions
  1. Combine 1/4 cup olive oil, lemon juice, 2 cloves minced garlic, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large resealable bag. Add chicken, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  2. Mix yogurt, cucumber, 1 tablespoon olive oil, vinegar, 1 clove minced garlic, and 1 pinch salt together in a bowl. Refrigerate tzatziki sauce for flavors to blend, 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Soak wooden skewers in a bowl of water for about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and thread onto the soaked skewers. Discard unused marinade.
  5. Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning frequently until nicely browned on all sides and chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes per side. Serve with tzatziki sauce.
TATZIKI SAUCE:
Ingredients
  • 1 (16 Ounce) Container Low-Fat Plain Yogurt
  • 1 Cucumber – Peeled, Seeded, And Grated
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Dill
  • 2 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • Kosher Salt And Ground Black Pepper To Taste
Directions
  1. Line a colander with two layers of cheesecloth and place it over a bowl. Place yogurt on the cheesecloth and cover the colander with plastic wrap. Allow yogurt to drain, 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Place grated cucumber in a fine mesh strainer; allow to drain 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Mix yogurt, cucumber, dill, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Refrigerate for flavors to blend, at least 2 hours.
“Drain some low-fat yogurt overnight to make this yummy cucumber dressing. This is a delicious topping for grilled chicken or meat. It’s also a great dip for veggies and pita chips. Added another clove of garlic ( werewolves in Florida). Eliminated the parsley and go a little bit heavier on the fresh dill.”
