Great Blend of Flavors
This was like taking a chicken gyro and making it gourmet! I fixed as directed with 2 changes - I used White Cooking Wine because it was what I had and I put fresh diced tomatoes on top right before serving! This will be made again and again in our house. I also served it with pita bread that was brushed with olive oil and fresh garlic and toasted until slightly crisp and a side of couscous. DELICIOUS!!

This is so easy and has so much flavor! It took me almost 30 years to get my husband to eat chicken and he loved this recipe. Please give it a try with pearl cuscous as a side. You won't regret it!

Delicious & Innovative
This dish was a huge hit! Very easy to prepare (I used sauvignon blanc as that was what I had). The SooFoo tabouleh was the perfect side & also a breeze to make. Surprisingly, my husband loved this as he does not like tabouleh. We even had enough for leftovers which we enjoyed as much as we did the first night!

I am Greek and I made this recipe exactly as written, and it was fantastic. I even used the tzatziki they recommend and it was great. My husband has even been asking me to make it again!!

Cooked this last night, and it was amazing! Used our own Pinot and made our own Tzatziki sauce, but we followed the rest of this recipe followed exactly. Do yourself a favor and try it...you will not be disappointed
