    CountryLady's Note:

    This is excellent served with pita bread, a garlicky tzaziki and a crisp, green salad. The marinade can also be used with veal.

      Very, very easy, and very, very good! The lemon flavor was very prominent, and the marinade REALLY tenderized the chicken - I noticed as I was putting it on the skewers that it almost fell apart - and that was before cooking; so you can imagine how tender it was when done! Or maybe it's because we grilled it by the "light" of the lunar eclipse ... No, I'm sure it was the lovely marinade! I didn't taste much garlic though it seemed as if I put a lot in. I will definitely marinate longer next time, maybe add a little more garlic. Everyone's taste is different. Overall, this couldn't be any easier, and it's a refreshing change. This will be a fun and different outdoor summer party dish! Oops! EdsGirl here again - I forgot to add that I used the marinade on some Yukon Gold potatoes - I boiled them till just tender, then poured the marinade on them while warm (I made extra marinade just for this purpose). They were outstanding!

      It was delicious!! And so easy. I grilled the chicken whole then slice it then. I served it with romain lettuce leaves instead of pita. Topped it with thin slices of red onion ,tomatoe and tzatziki sauce. Even the kids loved it. this has become a family favorite. thanks.

      CL, the flavor of this marinade was a little too subtle for our taste. I'm wondering if it's because we used previously frozen chicken breasts and they maybe diluted the marinade. We marinated the pieces for about 2 hours...resulting in very tender chicken pieces. We will try this recipe again (we didn't vary the ingredients first time around) but use fresh chicken breasts instead. M&Mers
