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.

Directions

  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 never have occurred to you, but somehow work well together. I won't get to use that review here. I'll try the tzatziki as a marinade again, because that seems a solid recommendation that I'd never tried, but perhaps with different ancillary spices as a tablespoon of cumin seemed to overwhelm the more delicate flavors of the tzatziki. It wasn't bad, by any means, it just didn't meet my hopeful expectations.

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