TV Dinner: Chicken Souvlaki


Chef Chris Manning shows us an easy Greek dish perfect for the beginning of summer.

It's souvlaki and, roughly translated, means "to skewer." It's a popular street food in Greece that's made with chicken, pork, lamb, fish and beef.

And he tops it with a traditional Greek sauce called tzatziki.
