    This was incredibly good and easy to make ! I did most of the prep work the night before and only had to cook the chicken for dinner . My family loved it and asked that it become a regular addition to our dinner options

    I just adopted the Mediterranean eating lifestyle, refuse to call it a diet, one week ago. This was one of the first things I made, and it was awesome!! The tzatziki sauce was soooooo good!! My son really liked the marinade!! I will be making this regularly. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    Amazing marinade, my new favourite for souvlaki. Used it on boneless chicken thighs, with sour cream instead of yogourt, worked out beautifully.

    Easy, delicious and will make again. Roasted chicken in the oven stacked on a skewer then shaved chicken for the pitas. Sauce I added a little more lemon juice and wine vinegar to cut the bite of the garlic. Added feta to sauce which added the right taste.

    This sauce tastes like garbage. I tried over and over to make it edible but I ended up wasting almost an entire yogurt. Just garbage

    Great recipe. The kids love eating chicken gyros. Due to the Stay at home orders recently I couldn’t find any pita or gyro bread but we ate it as a salad & my little ones ate them on tortillas so win-win here!
