Chicken Souvlaki

How colourful is this meal? Having had a holiday in Greece this year and seeing this meal on every menu in every restaurant we went to, it was nice to be able to recreate a really lovely and easy version the other night. The kids were extremely enthusiastic about it, which is always a bonus these days. 

Serves 4
4 chicken breasts
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Juice of 2 lemons
Splash of olive oil
A sprinkle of dried oregano

1 Red pepper, chopped into chunks
1 red onion, chopped into chunks
Olive oil

Heat the oven to 190C.  
Chop the chicken breasts into pieces and marinade with the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and oregano for at least 30 minutes. 

Either, fry or griddle the chicken pieces until nicely browned. Quickly fry the red pepper and red onion until just starting to cook. If you have skewers thread on the chicken, pepper and red onion repeating the process along the skewer.  Place the skewers in the oven to finish off the cooking for about 10 minutes. If you don't have seekers you can  just continue to fry until the chicken, peppers and onion are cooked through in the pan. 

Serve the skewers with warm flatbreads, and Greek yoghurt. Avocado is an optional but very nice accompaniment.
