The Greekish Life
Eat and Drink
Looking for a snack or easy weekend meal? Have you tried Greek Nachos?
They're as easy and delicious as the original type, but with fresh, bright Greek flavors. It's a favorite go-to in our house.
And the only cooking required is for the chicken, unless you want to make your own tzatziki from scratch, which most people do.
I have a confession to make.
I use store-bought tzatziki.
I KNOW I KNOW! I'm a bad Greek. But here's the thing, guys - despite it being a fairly easy thing to make, for me it's been impossible to make right. It's always too runny or too lumpy or...just wrong.
So I buy the ready-made and it's not half-bad and there - I've said it. #notsorry
1 bag pita chips (you probably won't use the whole bag, depending on the size)
2 chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
1/3 of a red onion, diced
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
2 tomatoes, diced (I used plum tomatoes, but use what you like)
1/4 cup kalamata olives, chopped
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
tzatziki to taste (home made or store bought - I won't judge!)
splash of olive oil for the pan
generous splash white cooking wine
generous squeeze of lemon juice
enough Simply Greek Souvaki Rub seasoning to sprinkle on the chicken so every piece has a little bit on it
some Simply Greek Salad spice for the feta (optional)
The brand Simply Greek is absolutely one I have in my kitchen all the time. I have all of their varieties except the Tzatziki sauce rub, because, well...we've been over that already. They're a real time-saver - there's no wondering how to season anything - just a pinch or two and you're good. You'll be seeing them pop up a lot in my recipes because I do truly use them all the time.
1. Chop all vegetables and set aside. Top feta with a light sprinkle of Simply Greek Greek Salad spice, if desired.
2. Chop chicken and set aside.
3. Add olive oil to pan on medium heat.
4. Add the chicken once the oil heats up and stir so oil makes contact with all the chicken.
5. Add a generous sprinkle of Simply Greek Souvlaki spice and stir again. Once chicken has been cooking for 10 minutes or so, add white wine and lemon juice. Stir.
6. While chicken is cooking, arrange pita chips on a large platter.
7. Once diced chicken is nicely browned, turn off the heat and start to assemble the nachos. Put chicken on the pita chips, followed by the diced tomatoes, cucumber, onion and feta. Follow with kalamata olives and a big dollop of tzatziki.
And you're done!
