Chicken Souvlaki
Method

The secret ingredient in this recipe is the brine!!! 

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Add all of the ingredients for the brine in a small saucepan.
  • Stir and bring to a boil. As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat and set aside for 1 hour. After 1 hour, strain into a bowl. It should have cooled completely.
  • Chop the chicken into small bite sized pieces and add them to the Poultry Brine. Let them soak for ½ an hour to 1 hour.
  • Drain the chicken pieces and dry off with paper towels. All of the moisture needs to be drained. Thread chicken onto skewers.
  • Add a small amount of olive oil to a very hot pan. Brown the chicken on the skewers on all sides, about 3-4 minutes.
  • When they are browned, cook in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Place the pita bread in a baking pan. Drizzle with a very small amount of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Combine all of the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl.
  • Present the chicken souvlaki on pita bread and serve with chopped tomatoes, lettuce and sauce. You can also try it with the tzatziki sauce!
Tip
Be careful not to let the chicken pieces soak in the poultry brine for too long because they will come out too salty!!
