    While I rate this four stars, I wouldn't make it for a special occasion. This was good and I'll make it again, but it's nothing to necessarily rave about. Here are some changes I made to the recipe: used lemon-herb flavored rotisserie chicken, used fat free feta and fat free Greek yogurt, I omitted the lettuce and I added a little lemon juice to the sauce. I think next time I'll use pressed fresh garlic instead of bottled.

    I added about a tablespoon or so of lemon juice to the sauce - I think it made it much better. Otherwise, delicious recipe. Would definitely make it again.

    (this was a December-issue superfast recipe but in July I was able to make some substitutions) Prepped yogurt & veggies to recipe, using fresh garlic. Started with raw cubed chicken, marinated with the garlic, fresh oregano & a little lemon juice. Then skewered & grilled chicken and warmed pitas on the bbq. Fresh, light, flavorful. Good summer meal, fast & easy.

    We love a local Greek restaurant here and this recipe was actually better than there's. (Some thing I did not think was possible.) We marinated the chicken with Stubs chicken marinade for half a day. We served with frozen french fries. This was a perfect mid-week meal.

    This was so tasty, a winner! The yogurt sauce is even better the next day. Definitely going to make again, and again!

    Very tasty. Sauce was the bomb. I didn't bother threading chicken. Pitas didn't open - so we kind of rolled the sandwich in the bread. Served with baked sweet potato fries and family was happy.

    I forgot the Dill! I think maybe with the Dill in the yogurt sause it might be better. Becasue i felt that it was missing a little somehting. It was tastey and we will try it out again.

    Easy to prepare (used rotisserie chicken), although might try a marinade as suggested by others and will try the lemon in sauce as well. Loved the Greek-styled yoghurt but it does have a lot of fat calories!

    This is the second time I have made this dish. The recipe is quick enough for everyday but tasty enough for a casual get together. I made the Tzatziki sauce from another Cooking Light recipe entitled Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce. I did not use the lettuce or onion. I served this with fresh melon. Delicious!

    I'm giving this recipe four stars, however it's not a special occasion dish. I used a brined sear-roasted boneless chicken breast that I adopted from another CL recipe found here. http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1891913 The pita's I bought would not split easily so I served it open face on top of the pita. This dish would be just as tasty served cold. We used all the chicken for 2 servings and that was our total meal other than fruit for dessert.

    Sorry, I was very disappointed in this recipe. It was relatively bland and the amount of vegetables in the dish overpowered the chicken.

    I followed the recipe, except I used rotisserie chicken and sprinkled some cayenne pepper before I rolled the ingredients up in flax seed flat bread, it was super delicious. My kids said it was a do-over!
