Roasted Chicken Souvlaki with Pita

Hi there!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  So, this is not the usual Souvlaki everyone knows and loves, with the added Tzatziki and French Fries etc.ย  This is actually myย  version ofย  โ€œRoasted Chicken Souvlakiโ€.ย  I make this quite often because my husbandโ€™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.ย  What I usually do is cook for him on Sunday 4 or 5 meals and he takes them with him for the week.ย ย 

This is actually one of the recipes that I make for him most of the time because this is his favorite.ย  A very quick recipe to prepare in regards to the cooking time, ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ย 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.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you enjoy this recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚



  • 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


  1. Chop Chicken Breasts into small pieces. and place into a large bowl.
  2. Wash and dry Peppers before slicing.
  3. Slice Peppers but not to thin, chop the Onions but not to small.
  4. Chop or dice fresh tomatoes, I usually chopped them but not into very small pieces.
  5. 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.
  6. Vegetable/Olive Oil is a must for this recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. 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.
  8. Take the bowl out of the fridge about an hour before baking. Bake at 180 degrees for 1 hour or until golden brown. ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. If you have Pita Bread warm it up in the oven or toaster. Once itโ€™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.
