The Marinating

When marinating meat with highly acidic ingredients such as lemon juice, it acts not only as a flavor component but as a tenderizer. Follow the specified time so as not to break down the protein too much before grilling.

Brush the mixture on both sides of the chicken. Chill 1 hour.

The Tzatziki Sauce

It is how the cucumbers are prepped for this popular sauce that will determine success. Removing as much moisture from them as possible will keep it thick, rich & well seasoned. Begin by removing the seeds from the cucumber. Simply, run a spoon through the cut portion. Next, swipe the cucumber over the large holes of a box grater. Place the shredded cucumber over paper towels & blot well with additional paper towels. Once relatively dry, the cucumber can be stirred into the sauce.

Blot the shredded cucumber well with paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible & place in a small bowl. Add the Greek yogurt & the next 4 ingredients, stirring well. Season with pepper. Prepare up to 1 day ahead of time when entertaining.
