Greek Souvlaki

I'm sure I've said this on here before but I could eat a Greek salad for lunch every day if I had to. I love them. Here is a photo of the one from Crown Burger. It's so good and I probably
have it at least once a week.

Another place that has really good Greek is Greek Souvlaki No. 1. This is just half of their Chicken Souvlaki Plate. Aisha and I like to go there and then split the plate.

So I've been trying to find the perfect souvlaki recipe so I can just pack my own salad (that and I also have a brick of 2 1/2 lbs. of feta in my fridge). So here is a recipe I found that was really good. I found it here - I just modified it because most recipes call for less olive oil.

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 T red wine vinegar
1 T finely minced garlic (or garlic puree from a jar)
1 T dried oregano
1 tsp. dried thyme

Trim all visible fat from chicken breasts. Then cut chicken breasts into strips. Combine all marinade ingredients and place in either a ziplock bag or airtight container. Add chicken to marinade. Make sure all chicken gets coated with marinade and store in the fridge for at least 8 hours.

Remove chicken from marinade and thread onto skewers (we were really lazy and just cooked them directly on the grill). Then eat. If you want more detailed instructions check the link I posted above.
