Falafel Chicken and homemade Tzatziki sauce

Since this really is a wellness blog.. not just about karate, I thought I’d post a recipe I sort of adapted from a fuller fatter version that involved frying and egg yolks.
I’d site the source, but I don’t know where the original came from.

Anyway, this was very tasty! Makes 4 servings but it heats up nicely the next day.

Falafel Chicken:

Four boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 box Falafel mix. You’ll actually only use 1/2 cup of the mix. (I like Fantastic Foods)
One zip top bag
Spray Oil (like Pam)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Put 1/2 cup of falafel mix in the zip top bag. 

Rinse the chicken breast and shake off most of the water.  One at at time add to the zip top bag and shake to coat.  Put on a baking sheet sprayed with spray oil.

Bake chicken for 20 minutes, or until done through.

While chicken is baking make, tzatziki sauce

Tzatziki Sauce

1/4 cup small chopped cucumber.
One small container (8 ounces) of greek style low fat yogurt if you can find it. (Try Fage – pronouced “Fay -eh”) Otherwise get regular plain yogurt.
One clove garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon dried Dill (half that if you can find fresh)
Lemon juice, salt, pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together.  Re-season as necessary. To be honest, I sort of winged this last night.  I think these are about the correct proportions. 

Serve with whole wheat couscous, and a veg.
