This is a very tasty and extremely simple sandwich. You do need to marinate the chicken at least 3 hours. I usually do it overnight.

I was very excited to try this recipe...it sounded delicious, and all the ingredients were exciting! When I made it however, I was very disappointed that the chicken tasted just like olive oil, and nothing else! I marinated overnight, and was really looking forward to a tasty dish, and it was all delicious, except for the main part, the chicken marinade. If I make it again, I may not use any oil at all, just the lemon juice, and I'll add more fresh herbs to the marinade.

This was just ok to me. The chicken didn't have quite enough flavor. I would recommend dumping out the marinade before cooking if you like your chicken browned. Otherwise it sort of poaches in the extra marinade. I would also recommend making tzatziki (sp?) instead of just using plain yogurt.

This was absolutely delicious as well as authentic & I'm honored to be the first to rate it. It's got the perfect mix of citrus/spice flavor (make sure to use fresh lemon juice---big difference in flavor). We added sliced cucumber in the pita & my husband had some deli purchased dill dip on the side, but I wouldn't change anything on recipe itself. This was so good in fact that I'm going to use the marinade to make Greek Potatoes, since the one offered on Allrecipes lacks any authenticity. Thanks Dave, obviously we loved it!
