Roasted Chicken Souvlaki with Pita

Hi there!!! 🙂  So, this is not the usual Souvlaki everyone knows and loves, with the added Tzatziki and French Fries etc.  This is actually my  version of  “Roasted Chicken Souvlaki”.  I make this quite often because my husband’s job actually has him away from home most of the week, so as a International Driver it is not always easy for him to find a restaurant.  What I usually do is cook for him on Sunday 4 or 5 meals and he takes them with him for the week.  

This is actually one of the recipes that I make for him most of the time because this is his favorite.  A very quick recipe to prepare in regards to the cooking time, 🙂 I chop chicken breasts add a few more ingredients, and marinade it all night so that the chicken can absorb all the delicious juices from the other ingredients. 🙂   Most of the time I make sandwiches for him with cold cuts but I thought he would love to have this in a Pita bread.  🙂

I hope you enjoy this recipe! 🙂



  • 500 grams Chicken Breasts chopped into small pieces
  • 3 Bell Peppers sliced
  • 2 medium size Onions diced
  • 3 Fresh Tomatoes chopped or sliced
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Oregano
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Chop Chicken Breasts into small pieces. and place into a large bowl.
  • Wash and dry Peppers before slicing.
  • Slice Peppers but not to thin, chop the Onions but not to small.
  • Chop or dice fresh tomatoes, I usually chopped them but not into very small pieces.
  • If you have fresh Oregano that is great because the smell and taste is more intense, if not then a tablespoon of dried Oregano is more than enough.
  • Vegetable/Olive Oil is a must for this recipe. 🙂
  • Add all the above ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place into the fridge to marinate overnight.
  • Take the bowl out of the fridge about an hour before baking. Bake at 180 degrees for 1 hour or until golden brown. 🙂
  • If you have Pita Bread warm it up in the oven or toaster. Once it’s ready first add a little of the sauce so that the Pita can absorb it and then add in as much Chicken Souvlaki as you wish.
