That is a great topic!! I think it depends on who is asked. I have my own preferences but if you ask my family, they would say my tilapia parmesan or my chicken/cheese enchiladas. The best part about this is that those are two of the easiest things to make!

I try not to make the same thing too often, though. I've collected so many recipes I need to try!

GG your marinated chicken w/ tzatziki sounds REALLY good!
Care to share?

I posted the tzatziki recipe a while back, with some other serving ideas: ISO Recipes w/ Fat-Free Yogurt

For the chicken marinade, I use boneless, skinless chicken breasts, Penzey's Greek seasoning, olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Marinate for half an hour or so, then grill. Slice the chicken and serve in pita bread with chopped lettuce, tomatoes and tzatziki sauce. Add sliced olives and/or onions if desired.

You take a whole chicken, wash and dry it inside and out. Mix together:

kosher salt
brown sugar
ground mustard
cayenne pepper
ground black pepper
chili powder
ground cumin
dried oregano
smoked paprika or sweet paprika (smoked is better)

Mix all that together. Coat your chicken with some softened butter and smear on this mixture.

Take a can of beer, remove the entire top with a church key opener (be careful and don't cut yourself. Pour out about 1/3 of the beer. Add about 1 TBS chopped onion, 1 TBS pat of butter, and 1 TBS of the above mixture. Place chicken on can so the legs and the can of beer act as a tripod. Place on grill using indirect heat for about 2 hours. If you use a smoker then it will require about 5 hours.

If that isn't very clear feel free to send me a private message.
