Easy Low Fat Chicken Souvlaki

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by ShaeCa

This is souvlaki without the fat!!! My kids love it grilled in the summer but I sometimes broil it in the oven in winter. The original recipe called for the juice of a lemon plus the zest, but I prefer it without the lemon. Let me know which way you prefer it. This is a crowd pleaser.

I've made this with chicken in the oven and recently with lamb on the grill and it's great! The second time I didn't have buttermilk so I substituted Greek yogurt in the marinade and it worked out terrific. It was thicker, but for grilled kabobs it held better on the meat during cooking. I did use lemon zest and juice from half a lemon both times and I think it really brings it all together. Threw it in a pita and topped it with grilled onions and store bought light tzatziki. It's a keeper!!!!
