Welcome to flavour town folks. This simple dish relies entirely on the flavour profile of each ingredient and they do the work for you. The tzatziki recipe to accompany the chicken is found here, and the roasted tomatoes recipe is found here. I totally recommend these accompaniments to make this dish complete.

I don’t have much of an opening monologue for this dish, because honestly it speaks for itself.

Happy Eating

souvlakiServes 2


2 chicken breast, cut into 2 inch cubes

2 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped

Half of 1 lemon, juiced

ยผ cup olive oil

2 tbsp oregano

1 tsp of salt and pepper

2 whole wheat naan bread

Tzatziki sauce

Roasted tomatoes

In a large freezer bag, add all ingredients. Seal the bag and gently massage the bag to mix everything together. Once itโ€™s thoroughly mixed, marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour (the longer the better).

While itโ€™s marinating line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Preheat oven to 400F/200C.

Spread chicken out evenly on baking sheet and bake in oven for 12 minutes. (Chicken Tip: for juicy always perfect chicken, think high heat, less time).

While chicken is baking, heat a nonstick skillet on medium heat and heat naan bread until golden brown and pliable.

Place heated naan on a plate. Smear with homemade tzatziki (click here for recipe). Top with chicken, roasted tomatoes (recipe here), and a hefty handful of greens (here I use pea tendrils).

  1. Hey Sofia
    Nice simple recipe! Will have to try it soon. What I like best is your advice on how to cook the chicken – always difficult to get that cooked juicy flavour of chicken for souvlaki or shwarma. Will also check out roasted tomato recipe!!

  2. I’m so trying this! I was expecting it to be complicated but nope, this totally works as a weeknight dish for someone who can only successfully cook rice ~25% of the time. I love tzatziki and it never occurred to me that it could be so easy to make it myself.

    And killer photography. ๐Ÿ™‚
