"This is a nice change from the ordinary grilled chicken. This is excellent served with pita bread, a garlicky tzatziki, and a Greek salad. Lamb can be substituted for the chicken, and many variations on vegetables can be used." — Dolce Cuoco

I just wrote thyme in my original post, not dried, I always use fresh.... If you are using dried make sure it is good quality thyme or you will end up with it leaving a bitter taste in your mouth! If you don't like thyme just leave it out or try marjoram or savory instead....the cumin in it gives it that something extra.... I originally got this recipe from a friend who lives in the Greek Islands...For some reason the recipe only says 1/4 cup olive oil, I use 1/2 a cup or even amounts of oil to lemon and vinegar (my friend just uses lemon juice in the original recipe no vinegar, she uses 2 cups of olive oil to 1 cup of fresh lemon juice)
Didn't enjoy the flavor the marinade left. Sorry. Won't be making this again.
Awesome! My new favorite Greek recipe for summer. I used mushroom, zucchini, onion and red pepper. The tomatoes I stuffed with a blend of feta, roasted garlic and basil, and served as an appatizer. I also de-kabobed them and sprinkled with feta, everything better with cheese! the flavors of the marinade are so amazing they should be brushed on everything.
Excellent! Light, refreshing flavors. I only had time to marinate for about an hour, but the flavor was still great. I added zucchini chunks to the kebabs (garden is overflowing with them!). Served over top of whole wheat pasta. Thanks! :)
Very good! Followed the recipe as is and it was yummy...I added a pinch more salt then the recipe called for. Will make this one again.
Oooh, I made this tonight and it was lovely! I didn't have the thyme so I used marjoram instead, but mmm mmm! It is good! Would definitely make again. Thanks so much for this Dolce. I let it marinate for about 8 hours and it was nice and juicy too.
This is yummy. I made it first as written and am now using it to marinate chicken breast for the grill. Try it you will love it.
Excellent marinade for chicken....also added thick chunks of red onion to the skewers....probably marinated a good 6 hours. Served with Tzatziki Sauce I from this site. Thanks!
