Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Tzatziki sauce — Use Greek yogurt for a creamy and authentic flavor.
  • Wraps or buns — Choose whole wheat or multigrain options for added nutrition.
  • Tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onions — Slice them thinly for easy assembly and a balanced bite.

Tips & Tricks

  • For extra flavor, add a sprinkle of dried mint or a dash of red pepper flakes to the marinade.
  • If you prefer a smoky flavor, grill the wraps or buns for a minute after assembling the souvlaki.
  • Customize your fast food souvlaki by adding your favorite toppings such as feta cheese or olives.
  • If you don't have a grill, you can cook the chicken in a skillet or bake it in the oven.
  • Leftover grilled chicken can be used in salads or sandwiches for a delicious next-day meal.

Serve the fast food souvlaki with a side of crispy French fries or a fresh Greek salad for a complete and satisfying meal.
