Chicken Souvlaki

Chicken souvlaki is one of the easiest things to make and is always so, so delicious.  It’s the staple of any good Greek feast, there are few things I love more than a giant Greek feast. I recommend serving the souvlaki alongside some tzatziki, lemon rice pilaf, perfect roasted potatoes and a big, fresh salad with lots of feta and a zippy dressing.  Try and get your hands on some Loukoumades to really round things out.  For the souvlaki, I like to just chop up some boneless skinless chicken breast, mix it with a marinade of olive, lemon juice, chopped garlic, some kosher salt and black pepper and about a teaspoon each of dried oregano, basil, rosemary, parsley, thyme and dill.  If you have fresh herbs on hand, even better.
