Recipe: Chicken Souvlaki



500g                 chicken breast                    1/4C      soy sauce
500g                 chicken thighs                    3             cloves crushed garlic
1                          lemon, juiced                      2             yellow onions, cut to 1-in pieces
1/4C                  olive oil                                  2             green bell peppers, cut to 1-in     1t                        dried oregano                                     pieces


In a large bowl, mix together lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce, oregano and garlic. Add the chicken pieces, onions and peppers. Stir to coat and marinate. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours. (I refrigerated mine for half a day).

Soak wooden skewers in water while waiting for the meat to finish the marination process.

Skewer meat as desired. (I alternately skewered mine: thigh – bell pepper – breast – onion – thigh – bell peper – breast).

Grill until meat is caramelized in color, about 5 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the heat of your charcoal grill. Do not overcook.
