Chicken Souvlaki for Dinner, Strawberry Granola for Breakfast and Jalapeño Poppers for Halftime



Christopher Testani, The New York Times. Food Stylist: Simon Andrews.

Good morning. On a sunny afternoon, in Melbourne, Australia a few years ago, I had a

pork gyro

A species of gyro

I have never seen before

Growing up, I ate lamb gyros from Mr. Souvlaki in Brooklyn's Montague Street but never any pork ones. Sometime, you can get beef ones. The meat is shaved on pita, then topped with a salad.


A red sauce made of ketchup and hot sauce. Pork version was amazing. After I returned home, I cooked the dish until it was good enough to be shared.

Lidey Heuck has a new chicken recipe.


The marinade (above) uses yogurt to make the chicken tender. No grill? No grill? You can roast it to cook through, and then crisp it in a pan with neutral oil that is hot enough to almost smoke on the stovetop.
