Chicken Souvlaki with Zucchini & Onions

This is probably the easiest and tastiest way I know to cook and eat chicken.  That and my love for zucchini means that this is one of my favorite recipes.  You can definitely put this on skewers and grill it outside, but my sad, tiny grill cannot withstand the gusts of wind that buffet the roof deck every couple of minutes.  I’m thinking about making a wind shelter for the little guy, but in the meantime I’ll continue to bake this in the oven.

This is great with a Greek salad, pita, tzatziki sauce, and/or hummus.
