The chicken wasn't so dry with the dressing. I added some bell pepper.

The tzatziki was very good. Also, we just made gyros.

I think feta would have been better than fresh mozzarella. Also, I used chicken thighs instead of breasts, because that's what I had on hand. Breasts would have been better. It's fine, it's just 'underwhelming'.
