    samcp4's Note:

    I had this in Greece and begged for the recipe to no avail. This is my version. I tend to allow the chicken to marinade overnight so that it is more tender and full of flavour. I serve them with green salad, tzatziki and bread. Great for a BBQ.

      I've been preparing Chicken Souvlaki for some time now, and was pleased when I tried this lemon version. I used all the ingredients listed with the addition of Lawry's Seasoned Salt, a bit of garlic powder and fresh ground black pepper. The key to this recipe is in the length of the marinating time....6 hours with a few turns works for me.

      I served this to people who are unfamiliar with this cooking genre, and they couldn't get over how flavorful and tender the chicken was. Thanks for posting this. Delicious.

      We loved this! I let this marinate for a few hours and it tasted fantastic. I did not cube the breast and just cooked them whole. I served the sliced chicken breast over a mixed green salad with some shredded cheese, carrots, and red onion. The chicken citrus flavor made a great compliment to the salad. Thank you for posting.

      I thought it was lacking in flavor but I didn't use a real lemon and I didn't marinate it for more than an hour. If I make this again I will add some salt and maybe garlic... even if that isn't authentic. BTW I had this with Baked Spinach Lemon Rice and they went well together.
