Have you ever wondered why the chicken tastes so wonderful in Greek chicken souvlakia ( kebabs ) or grilled chicken?
The secret is in the marinade. Allow to marinade chicken overnight. Bake, grill pan fry the chicken and you will achieve that classic Greek flavour.
A dry white wine is generally used. Like a Sauvignon Blanc. A sweet wine would not work.
500g chicken breast, thigh pieces skin removed.
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tbspn oregano
1 tspn sea salt
2 tspns cracked pepper
Mix the last 6 listed ingredients together, pour over chicken, seal the chicken in a container place in the fridge allow to marinade overnight.
It’s truly simple, but the combination of classic Greek ingredients , lemon, pure olive oil, and wine are simply perfect.
Cook your chicken the way you like.
