Reviews for Greek Chicken Wings
"We did not like the cucumber; the dip was too thin and frothy. I'll squeeze extra lemon and put some coarse pepper on the wings and sprinkle them with feta. Would skip the dip altogether."
"Yum, these were delicious! I loved the feta directly in the sauce. The next day, I shredded the leftover chicken, chopped tomatoes, red onion and lettuce and served on pitas as chicken gyros. It was a hit both ways!"
"Nice departure from hot wings. Delicious."
"Not the flavor we were looking for. They were good, but not great. The cucumber sauce was delicious. I added the juice of 1/2 lemon, 1/2 t. salt, 1/2 t. sugar and that brought out the other flavors."
"This is FANTASTIC, EASY and DELISH!!!!! Just make 3-4x's the dipping sauce cuz it's great.You'll never use another wing recipe again!!! ...royurboat"
