    I have never used yogurt as a marinade, these have a nice lemony flavor, very good!

    I really like how the yogurt and lemon tenderizes the chicken. Super tender! Enjoyed this with an orzo salad, full of greek olives, feta cheese, etc.

    A little bland as some others are saying but with some tzatziki they turned out ok.

    A little bland for our liking but it was simple and we enjoyed it dipped in some ranch for an extra kick of flavor!

    These were delicious and easy to make. My very picky 13 year old ate the whole thing. This recipe is a keeper!

    We did not enjoy this recipe at all. The lemon flavor was too strong and other than the lemon it was very bland.
