And the heat goes on....Chicken Souvlaki Sandwiches

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

It is so hot here that there have been reports of concrete buckling.  Last night the worst possible thing could have happened.  The power went out.  It went out at around 7:30 last night and didn't come back on until after midnight.  At 10:30 last night the temperature outside was a lovely 93 degrees and without air conditioning, the temperature in the house was quickly rising to unbearable levels.  Yuck.  What is worse is that only our block was out of power, all the houses around us were on!  Fortunately the power came back on before it got too miserable in the house.  
Tonight I made Chicken Souvlaki sandwiches.  I got this recipe from Betty Crocker and made a few changes.  You will find my changes to the recipe in RED.

Chicken Souvlaki Sandwiches

  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken (I used a roasted chicken)
  • 1 cup chopped peeled cucumber
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion (I can't eat raw onion, not even raw green onion so I roasted the onions in the oven and then finely chopped them.  Raw onion literally makes me sick, I don't know why, but I just can't eat it).
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill weed
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (I was out of red wine vinegar so I substituted apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 pita fold breads (5 inch) (I used the folditbread and it worked perfectly!)
  • The original recipe also called for 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese, but I do not like feta, so I left it out.
In medium bowl, place all ingredients except pita breads; toss until evenly coated. Divide mixture evenly down center of each pita bread; fold in half.

STAY COOL, and until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking and EATING!
