Well.. first a disclaimer. I am not Greek so this is not an 'authentic' recipe. It's just me trying to replicate a meal I enjoy!

For the souvlaki, I just cube chicken breast and put it in a ziploc bag with Olive Oil, lemon, minced garlic, Greek Seasoning, Salt and pepper. You would use more or less depending on how much you made.. but for 4 cutlets I used the juice of 2.5 lemons, about 10 garlic cloves minced (I looove garlic) and maybe just shy of a half cup of EVOO. You can buy Greek Seasoning in the supermarket.. but if you can't find it or don't feel like getting it.. it's basically just dried oregano, dried mint and dried parsley. I think there may also be some hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. The oregano, mint and parsley are most up front though. Let that marinate for 30 - 60 minutes. Once it's good and soaked - I coat them and thread on wooden skewers and grill - or just broil them in the oven without the skewers until they are cooked through (maybe 10 minutes).

For the sauce.. I used a large container of 0% Fage (about 2 cups). You can use any plain Greek yogurt. I sliced a cucumber in half lengthwise and scooped out the seeds and tossed them. You can grate the cucumber - but I chose to chunk it up and throw it in the mini prep processor. You should have at least a half cup of cucumber. I do not peel the cucumbers. Throw the cucumber mess into the yogurt and stir.I add about 2 tablespoons of lemon - go by your own taste. I also added a teaspoon of olive oil and salt to taste. Garnish it with a little cucumber and lemon peel.

I also make a lemon rice pilaf to go with it if you are interested. Just saute a palmful of orzo and a small chopped onion with a Tablespoon of butter in a saucepan. Add 2 cups of chicken stock or broth. Bring to a boil and add 1 cup of white rice (not quick cooking). Bring back to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer on low for 20 minutes. When cooked, add a tablespoon of lemon zest and a teaspoon of lemon. Stir it up. You can also throw in a cup of steamed peas and stir.

I finish the meal with a greek salad made of Romaine, Kalamata Olives, Red Onion, tomato and cucumber with a simple lemon, olive oil and Greek Seasoning dressing.

Good luck!

Re: WEEKLY MENU - 1/30

I decided to start planning our menu monthly. Here is this week. Sorry it's not as fancy as some of the others, but we have a 2 month old and we both work so it's hard to make a long meal.

Sunday: Filet mignon steaks from BJs and garlic mashed potatoes

Monday: Chicken risotto

Tuesday: General Tso Chicken and Rice

Wednesday: Seared Steaks/Sweet Potato Casserole

Thursday: Pasta

Friday: Out to dinner

Saturday: Having friends over and we'll bring something in to eat.

There's no need to defend your menu! It looks perfectly delicious! Chat Icon Mine really isn't that fancy either.... and we have a 6 week old, so believe me I'm not slaving in the kitchen at all!

I buy mine from an indian grocery store that sells halal meat (muslim equivalent of kosher) Chat Icon It tastes pretty good! I usually buy it in Valley Stream, but DH has bought it in Hicksville in the past.

My grocer sells halal meat. But I dont recall seeing any goat...I guess it's worth asking him though..

Thanks!!!
