Chicken Souvlaki* was a favorite dish of mine to order at The Souvlaki House in Ithaca, N.Y. during college. This was a place that my friends and I would go to nearly every week for the inexpensive wine, toasted and buttered rolls, Greek salad, and Chicken Souvlaki plate — it housed of some of my best and favorite memories from college.
And even after college. We actually dined there both nights of our five-year college reunion. (It was just so great to see Peter, the owner, and Debbie, our favorite waitress, that we couldn't resist.) No matter when we went though, the plate always arrived with a hot, thick pita, a healthy serving of tzatzki sauce, and charred lemony chicken.
When making this at home, I served it in a similar fashion with a side of Greek Salad and Simple Tzatziki sauce. All in all, it was an incredibly simple and flavorful meal to make whether you grill it outdoors or on a cast-iron griddle pan inside.
