Wooden skewers 1 long 10 inches

Marinade:

Greek yogurt two cups

Lemon juice 1/4 cup

Olive oil 3/4 cup

Salt 1 tbsp

Minced garlic 1 tbsp

Coriander powder 1 tbsp

Paprika 1 tbsp

Ground cumin 1 tbsp

Cayenne pepper 0.5 tsp

Black pepper 1 tsp

Tzatziki Sauce

Large cucumber shredded

Greek yogurt two cups

Garlic minced 1 tbsp

Lemon juice 1/4 cup

Dill paste or fresh dill finely chopped 2 tbsp

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

Marinate chicken in the above-described marinade and then thread the chicken on the skewer and put in the oven. In order to make the skewer stand flat on the skewer, chop off the root of the onion after peeling it and make it flat. Then first thread the skewer through it and then start layering the chicken on top. Preheat oven to 400F. Then bake for 1.5 hours until internal temperature reaches 165 F.

Next assemble the chicken, tzatziki sauce and salad vegetables, tomatoes and pita bread. Roll up and eat.
