CHICKEN SOUVLAKI + HOMEMADE TZATZIKI SAUCE ๐Ÿฅ™





Austin and I love eating at the Greek Pita Place in Salisbury, and especially love their chicken souvlaki! I was inspired to try to make my own healthy version after we ate there a few days ago. The #1 rule in trying to eat a little healthier is to make recipes that you get excited about! ๐Ÿคฉ This is a definitely healthy meal that to I look forward to eating every day ๐Ÿ˜‹ Itโ€™s also super easy to pack up and take to work! I made mine like a salad with pita on the side for easier eating ๐Ÿ˜‰ Servings: 4 Calories per serving: 373 cal (399 cals with sauce) Protein per serving: 30 g Carbs per serving: 41 g Ingredients: 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts Juice from 1 lemon 5 cloves garlic 2 Tbsp olive oil 2 Tbsp oregano 1 tsp thyme 1 tsp rosemary 1 tsp paprika Salt & pepper to taste Fo serving: 4 whole-wheat pitas, 2 cups arugula, 1 cup cherry tomatoes (halved), 1 cucumber (cubed), and 1 red onion

Sauce Ingredients: 2 cups Greek yogurt 4 cloves garlic (minced) 1 Tbsp olive oil 1 Tbsp fresh dill 3/4 cucumber (seeded and grated) Juice from 1/2 lemon Salt and pepper to taste (To make sauce: just combine all ingredients in a large bowl and add to pita in desired amount ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ)

Directions: 1. Cut chicken into cubes. Add to bag with lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and spices. Marinate for at least 30 mins (I recommend longer to really get a good flavor! 2. Add contents of bag into a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for ~15 mins, stirring occasionally. Cook until chicken starts to get black โ€œgrill marks.โ€ Then transfer to bowl and set aside. 3.Lay pita on plate and add as much arugula, tomatoes, and onion as you would like. Then add chicken, top with a little tzatski sauce, and enjoy!
