Greek Yogurt Marinated Chicken Souvlakia (Σουβλάκια)

I have a total crush on Greek yogurt this week. I can’t seem to get enough. So much so, that I’m soaking chicken in it and scrubbing my face with it. (Tiny side note: for a quick and incredibly invigorating facial scrub, mix a 1/2 teaspoon of Greek yogurt with a 1/2 teaspoon ground coffee. With your finger tips, gently scrub into face using tiny circles. Wakes your face right up and leaves your skin smooth as silk.) ;)

Now… on to marinating and cooking!

Marinating for a day in Greek yogurt makes this chicken moist and incredibly flavorful. I use Chobani Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt because it’s thick and tart and coats the heck out of the chicken. If you can, double the recipe to force leftovers. They’re  great for making Greek Chicken Chili. :)
