We love a good blend of meat and veggies on a stick. There’s something just so fun about that experience! Well, this Chicken Souvlaki is no exception. The juicy chicken is seasoned so deliciously and brings a bit of that Mediterranean flare we love so much. Mmm, and those crispy, fresh onions add the extra pizzaz it was missing. It’s just a blast to scooch them off the skewer and chow them down! They’re amazing on their own, but could be oh, so good pulled onto a salad, a veggie bowl, or anything else you’re craving! Join in on the fun! Chicken Souvlaki is waiting!
