Who says a good meal has to be time consuming and require lots of ingredients? Certainly not me!!! I’ve always wondered what heating tzatziki sauce and pouring it over chicken would taste like, so that’s what I did for the main course of Greek Week. My husband absolutely loved this grilled chicken with tzatziki sauce, and so did I! (I bet this is another one that Melissa freaks out over…at least it’s not powdered hollandaise sauce)!
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 5 min; Cook Time – 15 min.
4 chicken breasts
1 c. tzatziki sauce
1 roma tomato
1/4 c. basil, chopped
Preparing Grilled Chicken with Tzatziki Sauce:
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Put tzatziki sauce in a medium saucepan and heat on medium, stirring occasionally. Grill the chicken about 8-10 minutes, depending on thickness. Transfer cooked chicken to serving platter and pour heated tzatziki sauce on top. Sprinkle with basil and add tomatoes for color. That’s it!!
The tomatoes aren’t a necessary part of the dish in regards to flavor, but it does make it look pretty!
Now Denise, why would you think that I’d ‘freak out’ over this? Costco Tzatziki is just about perfection. I’m sure fresh, homemade from Ya-Ya’s prized recipe is better, but I don’t have a Ya-Ya so Costco will have to do. Cool idea to warm it up. Yummmmm ~Melissa
