A few weeks ago Emily and I were making chicken skewers for dinner. I know that placing raw food on skewers and then grilling them is supposed to be some sort of easy and fun meal to make but in my experience it’s really not. The marinade always gets all over your hands and the counter, the vegetables often split when being skewered and then they stick to the grill while cooking unevenly. It was during the grilling process this last time when I was getting increasingly frustrated and Emily suggested we just take them off the skewers and cook them in a pan just like stir fry. That was the day Greek Chicken Stir Fry was born, it was so good that we decided to throw it back on the menu. We typically have a side of couscous with our skewers anyway so when making it a stir fry just use the couscous as a base the same way you would rice in the Asian version.
Heat olive oil and onions over medium heat in a wok or large skillet for a minute or two, add chicken and garlic and cook through. Remove chicken and place on the side and add cut up vegetables and cook as you would any stir fry. Add the oregano and paprika, combine, add the chicken back in and take off the heat. Stir in the lemon juice and yogurt, serve over prepared couscous. Makes 4 servings.
Much Love, Emily and Aislinn
