Take a look on our chicken souvlaki with vegetables recipe here:

  • We cut the chicken into large chunks. We select four to five pieces and add them to a ‘kalamaki’, small wooden straw. After repeating the procedure so that all chicken pieces have been used, we put them in a big bowl.
  • In another bowl we prepare the marinade that we will add later on to the chicken. We put sesame, a bit of sesame oil and a bit of fresh thyme and we mix it together with a spoon.
  • We cut some red and green peppers in small pieces and grill them for 5 minutes.
  • We blend the chicken pieces to the marinade and we put them on the grill for 15 minutes, turning them constantly so that they will be evenly cooked on all sides.
  • While waiting for the chicken souvlaki to be done, we prepare the sauce. We put a bit of olive oil, a bit of lemon juice and a bit of onion, and mix them well together.
  • When the chicken souvlaki is ready, we put it on a plate, we rinse it with the lemon sauce, add a few well cooked vegetables and we present it to your table!
