This recipe was so tasty. We did change a few things slightly. We used minced garlic, garlic powder, and salt to taste and then we also used black olives, since I'm not a fan of kalamata olives. We made this with garlic and cumin grilled zucchini, which paired really well. We topped the chicken with the feta and then topped everything with the tzatziki sauce. So delicious! My parents are trying it too since they've heard my rave reviews. We will definitely be making this again and again.
Yum, easy and quick especially after a long day at work where you don't feel like doing much. I used chicken thighs as they don't dry out like breasts can and I added a bit of white wine, salt and pepper to the marinade. I grilled on the griller for 5-10 minutes a side. I had the thighs with lemon garlic potatoes and some spinach and plain yoghurt with feta. Although I think the recipe is versatile and you could serve the chicken with just about any side you can think of. Excellent!
