This was very, very good, but I did make some changes. I prepared the marinade exactly as written, but I marinated the chicken pieces for about 5 hours, which was perfect. The tzatziki sauce I had to alter: I substituted lemon juice for the vinegar and added a teaspoon of dried dill weed. I served this as sandwiches, with pita warmed on the grill, sliced red onion and tomatoes. Completely yummy!
this just didn't turn out well. The sauce seemed to be missing something to me.
This recipe was amazing! We rarely please all three of our picky children with any recipe, but this one was loved by all. We marinated and grilled not only chicken, but pork, salmon, zucchini and yellow squash. Everything was absolutely yummy in every way. The addition of the tzatziki sauce was like the icing on the cake. We made a slight change of the addition of a touch of fresh mint in the tzatziki, and it was amazing. I'm a person who likes to know why you do what you do in recipes sometimes. My husband informed me that letting the tzatziki sauce chill for at least an hour after making helps the vinegar in the sauce break down the other ingredients so that they can combine. I'm glad to know this, because I will never rush a tzatziki again. The sauce was so simple and delicious, as was the marinate. Thanks so much for sharing!!!!
This turned out amazing. Since I live in rural Japan, I don't have access to Greek yogurt so I just used plain yogurt and added some lemon juice and white pepper to it (taken from another recipe) and it tastes almost as good as actual tzatziki.
Loved it! I Marinated the chicken overnight. The sauce was easy to make. I added veggie kebabs and couscous which only added a few minutes to the cooking time. A complete meal on a budget.
this recipe was delicious!! very easy too!
I use a greek seasoning as well. I like a little more vinegar in the marinade... Also, soak the skewers in water for an hour or two and they wont catch fire as easy on the grill.
This is very, very close to how I make this dish. I use a Greek spice blend rather than just oregano, and I drain my cucumber well before adding to the yogurt. I also add a bit of fresh dill to my tzatziki. We love these. They are soooo good served on warm flatbread!
