Turkey, Garlic, tea, blender

This Greek-inspired recipe is a delightful twist on the classic turkey dish. The marinade infuses the turkey with the bold flavors of garlic and tea, creating a mouthwatering experience for four people.


  • 1 lb turkey breast, cut into chunks
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tea bags
  • 1 cup boiling water


  1. Start by preparing the marinade. In a bowl, combine the minced garlic with the contents of the tea bags.
  2. Pour the boiling water over the garlic and tea mixture, and let it steep for 5 minutes to infuse the flavors.
  3. Once the marinade has cooled, place the turkey chunks in a large resealable plastic bag.
  4. Pour the marinade over the turkey, seal the bag, and gently massage the marinade into the turkey.
  5. Refrigerate the marinated turkey for at least 2 hours, allowing the flavors to develop and permeate the meat.
  6. When ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  7. Thread the marinated turkey chunks onto skewers, and grill for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the turkey is cooked through and has a charred exterior.
  8. Serve the succulent souvlaki with your choice of sides and enjoy the robust flavors of Greece.
