We loved these! Very easy and so tasty. Great as leftovers, also. The only substitute I made was to use Kalamata olives instead of black olives. The Greek recipe just seemed to demand Kalamata olives. I think it was a great substitution.
These were very good! I used Fry Chik(vegetarian chicken) and made my own tortilla shell by baking in the oven. Made for the Australian swap-Jan 2012.
The sauce was made the day before, so all we had to do today was to assemble them. We did not have any hard shell tacos, so I used soft shells and also pita bread. I used chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken I had bought and froze early this year. This was a very refreshing light "taco" for a Sunday lunch.

What a fantastic alternative to a taco!!! I made this for lunch today...I knew it was something my kids would eat however; I figured a p.b. & j. sandwich would need to be made for the little boy my daughter is watching this summer. He really enjoyed them as well. (a kid pleaser here) I opted to use fresh cucumber in the sauce along with a little minced fresh onion and I omitted the olive oil. Oh, and I used Kalamata olives, but instead of adding them to the sauce, I chopped them and topped only the tacos of those who wanted them. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Thanks for sharing Peter. Made and reviewed for the AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #53
The farm adored this! What a grand idea, and only a "Naughty but Nice" would of thought of such an amazing meal. I loved everything about this! I followed this exactly, except used the optional cucumber instead of the gherkin. Let the sauce sit over night, and it was so good, I have to keep changing spoons from tasting it so much! I used an extra chicken breast I had cooked the other day, specifically for this occasion, and marinated the chicken with the sauce for about 4 more hours before serving. Used x-large shells, and this was one crunchy delight! Had some fresh baby greens from the garden just starting to peek up, and these went perfectly with this. Thanks for being such a special guy, and sharing your delightful recipes from the "down-under".
A very different but nice change to the alternative. Fresh comes to mind. My husband loved it and it has been requested again.
*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #34* Really tasty, Peter ! I used peeled and diced cuke and Purdue rotisserie Shortcuts for the chicken. Bought taco shells, but they just shattered, put together with tortillas, but they were messy. DH and I just ate the chicken salad, which was very tasty and 2 each were just right for lunch. (Tried to slice an avocado, but it was rotten !) Thanks for posting !!
A nice change from the regular Taco Night
What a nice change from typical tacos. I enjoyed the sauce, thought it went well with the Greek theme, also liked the feta cheese.
