Chicken Souvlaki

Many years ago I worked at a Greek restaurant, and everything was love at first bite! My love for Greek food started. One of my favorites is Chicken Souvlaki. I like to serve my Souvlaki with homemade Tzatziki sauce and pita bread. I don't remember the recipe from the restaurant, but I promise my recipe is just as yummy!

1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
3 cloves garlic-chopped
3 chicken breasts cut into chunks

Pour all ingredients into Ziploc back and marinate for at least a few hours. After chicken has marinated, put chicken on a skewer and grill until done.

Tzatziki Sauce
8oz plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp dill
3 clove chopped garlic
1 cucumber shredded and moisture squeezed out. If you don't squeeze the water out of the shredded cucumber the sauce will be runny.

Combine all the ingredients, mix and serve.
