    Very delicious! Loved the flavor. Best tzatziki sauce I’ve ever made.

    Delicious! 2 chicken breasts made 8 full kebabs, and we only used two zucchinis. Didn't put any oil on the vegetables and they cooked just fine

    The chicken was delicious! Really flavorful and tender. Although the flavor was great, I found the chicken and vegetables together were a bit oily. I will reduce the oil that I toss the vegetables with next time. I have never had tzatziki sauce before and really didn't like it on its own, but it was better mixed with the chicken flavor. I don't know what it was supposed to taste like, but it just wasn't for me. But I will definitely be making the chicken again!

    Good. Make with only 2 chicken breasts for 2 people. Gives more space for veggies In the oven- 425* for 10-15 mins a side.

    Made this for my husband, 10 and 12 year old kids, another couple and their 5 year old son. Decided not to do the kebabs and baked it instead. Everyone LOVED it, especially the Tzatziki sauce. I doubled the recipe and served it with white rice and naan. Everything was locked clean! My friend left with the recipe!

    The skewers were wonderful - juicy, tender, and well seasoned. The tzatziki was only OK. I added more garlic than it called for because I felt like it needed more flavor, and next time I would shred the cucumber instead of dicing.

    My husband craves this marinating sauce for the chicken

    The tzatziki sauce is great. The chicken is good. Might try using the marinade to grill chicken pieces and skip the kabob thing.

    my family loved z kababs at first I doubted its tenderness especially with absence of yogurt in ingredients but came put for z sauce I will do with no cucumbers next time

    Delicious recipe! The chicken comes out beautifully tender and flavourful. I served it with rice and a Greek salad. I didn't have mint for the tzatziki so I used dill. I will definitely make this again!

    This was a refreshing recipe! I use chicken cutlets, grilled & shredded them. Grilled pita bread with sliced tomatoes and the tzatziki sauce. Definitely would make this again!!

    The chicken was so tasty and tender! I left out the coriander. The Tzatziki was excellent too, although I read it wrong; seeing only the 'cup' part, I used 1 whole and a shy half of 6.3 oz containers of 0% fat Greek Yogurt and only 1/4 tsp salt. It was very tasty sauce. I tossed the veggies with the oil and cooked them separately in a grill pan to the side. They were delicious.

    Very tasty, even without the zucchini (I forgot to buy at at grocery store). Will definitely make again - often!

    Wicked awesome! The chicken was super flavorful! I never used this tzatziki recipe because I make my own so I can't comment on that, but that chicken was delicious.

    FIRST - The previous 2 reviews gave ONE STAR not for the recipe of Greek Chicken Kebabs, but rather because they couldn't open the recipe on the Yummly website without signing up! Bogus reviews! This recipe is delicious. Moist and flavorful chicken! Highly recommend!
