How to Make Chicken Souvlaki Dip

Step-by-Step

  1. Place all wet and dry ingredients for the marinade in a ziplock bag.
  2. Cube your chicken breasts, place in marinade and seal. Using your fingers, make sure all surfaces of chicken have been coated with marinade. Place in fridge, flat for 2-4 hrs.
  3. As chicken is marinading, make your tzatziki sauce. *While pressing the garlic for the marinade, also press for the sauce*.
    Grate your cucumber using a mini chopper or silver bullet, much easier, trust me! Drain in a small sieve. In a medium bowl, add the rest of the ingredients, finally add your cucumber and salt & pepper to taste. Cover with saran wrap, place in fridge and chill.
  4. When chicken is ready to bake, preheat oven to 350F. On a small roasting pan add your chicken and all the marinade. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes. Take carefully out of the oven.
  5. Pour marinade broth into a microwave safe container. Return chicken into oven for another 15 minutes. Microwave the broth for 2-2:30 minutes to make sure chicken marinade broth is well cooked. Set aside.
  6. Remove chicken from oven. Let cool for a few minutes.
    In a food processor, add chicken cubes, and a drizzle of the cooked marinade broth. Pulse on low for till chicken starts to break down. Add the rest of the marinade broth and pulse till chicken has been broken down, is now a fine "glob ball like" mass.
  7. Add the ground chicken soulvaki to the tzatziki sauce, and mix well. Add the green onions and 2-3 Tbls of full fat sour cream for creaminiess.

    Place in a pretty bowl and serve with your favorite bread, crackers or vegetable crudites!!

    Enjoy!!
