    Serves: 4 

    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
    • 250g tzatziki
    • 80g chopped red onion
    • 1 tablespoon cumin
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Extra time:30min marinating  ›  Ready in:1hr25min 

    1. Arrange the chicken breasts into the bottom of a baking dish. Stir the tzatziki, red onion, cumin, salt and pepper together in a bowl; pour evenly over the chicken. Allow to marinate at least 30 minutes.
    2. Preheat an oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    3. Bake the marinated chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read at least 74 degrees C.

    Tzatziki=Love; Cumin=Love; Tzatziki+Cumin=Not So Much. I was pre-composing a review as I prepared this dish about how wonderful it is to discover a unique combination of ingredients that would never have occurred to you, but somehow work well together. I won't get to use that review here. I'll try the tzatziki as a marinade again, because that seems a solid recommendation that I'd never tried, but perhaps with different ancillary spices as a tablespoon of cumin seemed to overwhelm the more delicate flavors of the tzatziki. It wasn't bad, by any means, it just didn't meet my hopeful expectations.  -  30 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    When baked, the tzatziki no longer tastes like tzatziki. It was OK - very moist, but we won't make this again.  -  23 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
