    A classic Greek dish made easy. This is so delicious and healthy. Make extra tzatziki sauce to have with a basic cucumber, tomato and red onion salad. YUM! :)

      Delicious! I marinated the chicken for 24 hours and it turned out great! I made half the amount of tzatziki and we still had some left over. I served the chicken with Greek pita bread and veggies. We will enjoy this again! Made for Pick A Chef for my adopted RagDoll90! Thanks! :)

      Really good, really easy. I used bone-in chicken thighs and roasted them in the oven then ran under the broiler. So the recipe is versatile as well. The tzatziki sauce makes the meal, though.

      This was excellent and oh, so easy! I had some cucumbers that my husband brought home from work so I went searching for other things to use them in besides salad. The chicken is all gone, but I've got a lot of sauce left. Will use it for dinner tomorrow night with gyro meat, lettuce, tomatoes and feta. Thanks RagDoll for posting this recipe.
