Recipe Ingredients for Souvlaki marinated Chicken

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 T. olive oil
1 clove garlic
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 pinch salt
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
16 ounces skinless, bonless, chicken breasts

Recipe Directions for Souvlaki marinated Chicken

  1. In a small bowl, mix the balsamic vinaigrette, juice from 1/2 lemon, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over the chicken, seal, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.

  3. Remove chicken from marinade and place on prepared grill. Discard remaining marinade. Cook chicken until juices run clear, about 8 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from heat, and allow to sit about 10 minutes before slicing into thin strips.

  4. Place pita rounds on the grill, and cook for about 2 minutes, until warm, turning frequently to avoid burning. Arrange warmed pita, sliced chicken, lettuce, onion, tomato, olives, and pepperoncini on a serving platter. Serve tzatziki sauce and feta cheese in separate bowls on the side. Stuff pita pockets with chicken and toppings to serve.
