Last night as I was thinking about what to make for dinner, all I wanted was something fresh. I knew we had boneless skinless chicken breasts in the fridge but didn’t know what to make with them. Then it came to me – Greek pitas! I could probably eat these 2-3 times a week. All of the ingredients taste so fresh and when it’s all put together, it’s simply delicious!
They are pretty simple to make and it was all ready to go in about 30 minutes.
3 chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. oregano, dried
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2-1 tsp. ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cucumber, grated and drained of excess juices
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Naan bread (you can use pitas or tortillas in this case but we like using Naan bread)
red onion (I used white in this case because we didn’t have any red – but red is what is most commonly used)
romaine lettuce (we didn’t have any so I left this out and it was still delicious)
Cut chicken breasts into 1 inch cubes. Whisk together the next 7 ingredients and pout over chicken. Toss well to coat. Let the chicken marinate while you make the tzatziki and chop up the veggies.
For the tzatziki, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
Heat a pan over medium high heat. Pour in the chicken and let brown on all sides, until cooked, about 5-8 minutes depending on how big your chicken breasts are. I should have done this in two batches as my pan was very crowded and the chicken didn’t brown as much as I would have liked.
Warm up your Naan at 350 degrees F for 3-5 minutes.
Try not to devour your pita in less than 5 minutes, like I did! So yummy!
These pitas are honestly so delicious and I hope you try them out! Please let me know if you do =) I have the leftovers for lunch today and I cannot wait!
