Grill season is upon us. We are kicking it off by making simple, flavourful, grilled juicy chicken souvlaki. The chicken breast marinates in a lemon, herb, garlic marinade and the acid breaks down the chicken which makes every bite melt in your mouth!


  • 1.5lb chicken breast – cut into 1.5” cubes


  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley 
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 lemon – juiced
  • 2 bay leaves


Step 1: To prepare marinade – add all marinade ingredients in a food processor, except the bay leaves. Pulse until well combined

Step 2: Place chicken in sealable container and add bay leaves. Mix in marinade and toss until fully combined with chicken and is well coated. Cover and let marinade over night or for a minimum of 2 hours.

Step 3: 30 minutes before cook time, soak skewers so they don’t burn on the grill. Preheat grill to medium high heat

Step 4: Thread chicken pieces onto the skewers and place on the hot grill. Cook for 4 minutes per side and allow to sit and cool for 5 minutes before serving!

Step 5:  Serve with grilled vegetables, a greek salad, rice or potatoes!
