    Chicken is very tasty, and the sauce is excellent! Well, at least the way we make it. I use full-fat mayo and full-fat Greek yogurt. We eat it in a pita with feta cheese. (Lettuce and grilled onions would probably also be a good addition.)

    Made the chicken portion of this recipe and loved it! I cut my chicken breasts into large chunks to be grilled on skewers and marinated for 8 hours. Perfect served with brown rice and grilled zucchini,squash and carrots.

    Very nice. I enjoyed the marinade and grilled the chicken which had a great flavor. I did change the cucumber sauce a bit adding some fresh lemon juice and no mayonnaise. I prefer greek yogurt for my sauce. I actually served mine in a Naan bread with, diced tomatoes and some crisp lettuce. It made a great sandwich. I could easily served it as a full meal as well. Very nice flavors. I had a light artichoke, olive salad as a small side dish. Thx for a nice recipe.

    Delish chicken. I didn't make the sauce, but the chicken is very flavorful and moist. Thanks!

    Very nice:) I have a wheat allergy so this was a great recipe - completely wheat free. I added some homemade hummus. It was delicious!
