Quite a while ago now I made low carb chicken souvlaki – marinated chicken pieces threaded onto skewers and then grilled. When I decided to make some souvlaki wings, I thought I'd just better check the exact definition of souvlaki. According to wiki:

Souvlaki is a popular Greek fast food consisting of small pieces of meat and sometimes vegetables grilled on a skewer. It is usually eaten straight off the skewer while still hot.”

And according to The Mediterranean Dish:

Like Kabobs, the word Souvlaki simply means “meat on skewers.” But Greeks also use it to describe the actual meal—warm pita, loaded with perfectly marinated grilled meat and topped with Tzatziki sauce.”

So I've taken a few liberties with the definition, but think of the chicken bone as a skewer and forget the pita, and it's pretty close!

How to Make Greek Souvlaki Wings

Make the marinade by combining extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, dry white wine, dried oregano, onion powder, and minced garlic together in a bowl. Find out more about great quality olive oil here!

Prepare the wings (if necessary) but using poultry shears to remove (and discard) the wing tips, then cut the remaining wing into wingette and drumette.

Place the wings in the marinade, and turn to coat. Cover, and place in the fridge to marinate for at least an hour or overnight.

The olive oil will solidify in the fridge so remove the wings from the fridge 15 minutes before cooking. Place them on a baking sheet lined with a rack. Season with salt and pepper – I love my new gravity-driven mills – just turn them over and they start grinding!

Place under a preheated broiler, about 4-5″ down from the elements. Cook for 20 minutes or until cooked thoroughly, turning half way through the cooking time.

Transfer the wings to a serving platter, and garnish with crumbled feta cheese, fresh dill fronds, and chopped fresh mint.
