Greek Chicken Koftas

Greek Chicken Koftas
From: Clockwork Jackal

1 1/2 lbs ground chicken
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried oregano
3 tablespoons fresh mint
1/2 lemon, squeezed
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

More olive oil, for oiling the grill

Chopped tomatoes
Chopped cucumbers
Thinly sliced red onion
Store bought Tzatiki
Greek style pitas

Equipment: Metal or wooden skewers and a grill

In a large bowl, mix together chicken, spices, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Git in there and use your hands. Form into 5 long meatballs around 5 metal or wooden skewers. Heeee... they look like...thingys. Heeeeee. Refridgerate for at least 15 minutes.

In the meantime, preheat your grill to high and chop your toppings.

Oil the grill REALLY WELL, and cook the koftas until cooked through, remember it's ground meat, (about 4 minutes each side.) Heat the pitas on the grill for a minute or so, just til warm.

To serve, spread a pita with tzatiki, place a koftka in the centre, and top with tomatoes, cucumbers and red onion. Watch your family devour them.
