Tzatziki Chicken

Rated as 3.25 out of 5 Stars

"Transplant yourself to the ocean breeze coastline of Greece if only for a meal. This is a moist, quick, and easy dish. Pair it with a Greek salad. I baked these in two different dishes, one as is, the other with a dash of red pepper and paprika. Some people just don't like the heat."

  1. Arrange the chicken breasts into the bottom of a baking dish. Stir the tzatziki sauce, red onion, cumin, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; pour evenly over the chicken. Allow to marinate at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Bake the marinated chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Tzatziki=Love; Cumin=Love; Tzatziki+Cumin=Not So Much. I was pre-composing a review as I prepared this dish about how wonderful it is to discover a unique combination of ingredients that would ...

When baked, the tzatziki no longer tastes like tzatziki. It was OK - very moist, but we won't make this again.

I was suprised at how good this was. I would definately make it again

I loved this.. had it cold with some homemade pita. I didn't measure the cumin.. just sprinkled it til it looked right. Used a tzatziki sauce recipe from here as well

The Tzatziki sauce did not taste like Tzatziki when cooked and was overpowering the flavor of the chicken a little too much. Probably not going to make it again.
