Delicious for everyone! I shredded my cucumber with a cheese grater for the Tzatziki—learned to do this from a Greek friend—and added lemon pepper instead of mint. I used garlic powder and didn’t have the problem of it being too garlicky. I love how easy this was as a way to use chicken leftovers.

Loved the halloumi / peppers / onions mix! I added the cherry tomatoes into the cooked mix too. Pleasant light flavor to that veggie / cheese mix -- could be used in so many ways! The tzatziki sauce was inedibly garlicky. Maybe use garlic powder or roast the garlic next time?

With a little prep this came together quickly. I did not like the tzatziki sauce though, much too garlic.
