Delicious greek food is easy to do on the G.I. diet. (Other than the fantastic homemade french fries from my local greek place….how I miss those!) My kids love Greek-style chicken on a stick and it’s very easy to make!
If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water so they don’t ignite on the grill.
Cut up boneless skinless chicken breasts into chunks and skew them.
Spray lightly with canola oil and cover the chicken on all sides with the following spice mix:
Faith’s Greek Rub
1 tsp salt
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon freshly ground black
teaspoon chicken-flavored bouillon granules (I use Knorr Caldo Con Sabor de Pollo)
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp dried bouquet garni*
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
*bouquet garni is optional, or you can use a whole teaspoon of the bouquet garni instead of using the parsley flakes.
I serve the chicken with whole wheat pita bread (I buy mine at the Ali Baba market on Wurzbach in San Antonio. It’s baked fresh daily, delicious, and 1/3 the price of the stuff at the grocery store.)
I also serve hummus (great for G.I. dieters!), and greek style green salad. I like romaine lettuce, feta cheese, black olives (which are green-lighted in moderation). You can also add tomatoes and onions if you like them!
If you arn’t pita-ed out at this point, Sam’s Club carries multigrain pita chips with flaxseed that taste better than the regular kind and are really quite good for you. A huge bag costs under 5.00$!!
