Method

To make the marinade for the chicken souvlaki, combine ½ teaspoon garlic, the juice of ¼ lemon, the oregano, pepper and 1 teaspoon of the olive oil in a bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat.

Preheat a grill plate or barbecue grill to high.

Place cherry tomatoes, zucchini and ½ teaspoon garlic on a piece of foil. Drizzle with remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil and season to taste. Fold the foil to form a pouch.

Thread chicken pieces onto skewers. Place on the grill or barbecue, along with the foil pouch for 8 minutes, turning the chicken after 2 minutes on each side and shaking the pouch.

Meanwhile, make a salad by combining lettuce with carrot and bell pepper. Squeeze over remaining lemon juice and season.

Serve cooked chicken souvlaki skewers alongside grilled vegetables and salad.
