Chicken Souvlaki

I got this recipe from one of my favorite reads. The Enlightened Homemaker. If you want something good and healthy, be sure to check her out. It is great to add a little Greek flavor to the menu!

Chicken Marinade:
1 lemon, squeezed
1/2 cup water
2 T. Greek Seasoning, I used McCormicks
1/2 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning

Put about 8 chicken tenders in the marinade and let sit for at least 15 minutes. While marinating, make the following dressing:

Tzatziki Sauce:
2/3 cup Greek yogurt or plain
1/2 cucumber, seeded and finely chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
2 T. finely chopped chives
2 T. fresh dill, chopped or 2 tsp. dried
1 T. lemon juicesalt and pepper to taste

Mix and let sit in fridge until ready to use. Now, to put together; Cook chicken in the skillet in all marinade on medium until no longer pink. Most of the marinade should be soaked up. You can also grill the chicken if you marinade it longer. Slice chicken in small pieces, chop lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber. Put sauce , at least 2 Tb. on one side of golden Naan bread, layer chicken, lettuce, tomato,cucumber and feta if desired. Season if needed with pepper and salt.
