I divided the recipe and found that it made a decent size

1 can of tuna

4 ounces cream cheese

1/2 stick butter

1 table spoon chopped onion

1 table spoon mayonnaise

parlsey

lemon juice

I added more garlic and my vewer @nanamichellecrochets6535 suggested adding dill.

Cream together cream cheese and butter first, and add other ingredients and combine

Chicken souvlaki with tzatziki sauce- Marinate chicken for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator with the following ingredients and make tzatziki sauce and refrigerate before cooking the chicken

1/4 c white wine or cooking wine
