What’s better than chicken souvlaki? Chicken souvlaki all in one easy to make bowl recipe! Welcome to your new favorite one bowl chicken souvlaki supper.
I love any recipe that has “one bowl” in the title, because it suggests that supper is going to be a conglomeration of delicious things that are going together fast in, yep, one bowl. Less dishes to wash, more wonderful things in one bite – what’s not to love? Especially when we are talking about tangy, delicious chicken souvlaki. Ready to one bowl-up your chicken souvlaki? Let’s make it!
I should admit that one of the things that made this recipe easier for ME, as well as scrumptious, is that I sent the Southern husband out into the dead of winter to grill the chicken breasts so that they were conveniently all nice and cooked when I was ready to make dinner. (My honey. Neither rain nor snow nor dead of night will keep the man from his grill.) Once you have some nice cooked chicken — and I cannot lie, the grilled variety makes this dish just perfection — you are about 10 short minutes away from suppertime.

Take one bowl. Tear up your lovely grilled or otherwise cooked chicken into bite-sized piece. Into the bowl with it. Add in some chopped up cucumber, some chopped scallions, some capers, and some halved cherry tomatoes. Mix together some crumbled feta cheese and plain yogurt and toss in a little dried oregano and add this to the bowl.
Mix it up good. Now divide it among the plates, top it with a grinding of fresh pepper and some chopped parsley, lay some warmed pita or naan bread on the plate…that’s it.
You’re done. You’re happy. And you still have the whole night in front of you!Print
