This was so easy to put together, and was a big hit! I marinated for about 3 hours, and the chicken had already started 'cooking' from the lemon juice, so I probably wouldn't go much longer than that - but it tasted fantastic. I used a different tzatziki recipe - as another reviewer suggested, draining the cucumber is essential. I mixed the grated cucumber with some salt, and let it sit in a bowl for 15-20 minutes. Then I drained through a fine-mesh sieve and squeezed as much water out as I could. I used regular yogurt, drained through a coffee filter for 30 minutes, instead of Greek yogurt (that's what I had on hand), and also added some dried dilll, though fresh dill would be even better. Left out the vinegar and olive oil, and added some black pepper.
I served the chicken on some pitas, with the tzatziki, black olives, sliced onions and tomatoes. Yum!
