These Greek Chicken Pitas are a classic good ol’ family staple of a recipe! It’s easy, delicious and customizable for those picky eaters in our life! PLUS the cucumber dill yogurt dressing is so addicting!

Did you know nine times out of 10 salad dressings can be marinades? It’s true business. And I happen to know of a certain Greek dressing that makes an excellent marinade for Greek Chicken Pitas, open face style.

Now. I have important questions to ask you…

Do you love feta? What about olives?… How ’bouts cucumber and dill yogurt dressing? You do! Good because today’s post has all that plus grilled chicken that was flash-marinated in homemade Greek dressing on top of a fluffy {not-so-homemade} pita with toppings galore! I like toppings galore!

To make the dill-cucumber dressing you need a few ingredients and like 5 minutes.

Mince up a tablespoon or two of fresh dill. It just depends on how “dilly” you like it.

Throw that in with the finely diced cucumber and yogurt.

Press in one clove of garlic.

And squeeze in a little fresh lemon juice.

Lastly add 3/4 teaspoon of the vinegar and a quarter teaspoon of kosher salt.

Stir and season with a little salt. Pop it into the fridge until you’re ready to serve it up.

Whenever I’m pan-grilling I slice my chicken breasts in half so they cook in half the time. Genius I know, but if I wasn’t afraid to light the grill when my husband wasn’t home I’d of just left them whole.

Pour over this Greek dressing. Because of the quarter cup of lemon juice you’ll only want to let them marinate for 15-20 minutes, or else the acid in the lemon juice will start cooking the chicken.

Heat up your grill pan over medium-high heat and grill each side for about 4 minutes.

Let them rest before slicing them into strips.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to toppings. These are pretty standard but if I had pepperocini’s I’d of add those spicy babes as well.
