Ingredients

FOR THE DRESSING:

  • 2 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 1 cup cucumber diced small
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh dill chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt

FOR THE PITAS:

  • [greek dressing]
  • 4 whole boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 4 whole pocketless pita breads warmed
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce thinly sliced
  • 1 whole roma tomato diced (seeds removed and discarded)
  • 1/4 cup red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives pitted and halved
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbled

Instructions

MAKE THE DRESSING:

  • In a small bowl, combine all of the dressing ingredients and stir.
  • Yogurt dressing may be made up to 2 hours in advance.
  • Cover and refrigerate until serving. The longer it has time for the flavors to meld, the better

MAKE THE PITAS:

  • Marinate the chicken breast halves in the Greek dressing for 15-20 minutes. Any longer and the lemon juice will start to break down the chicken.
  • Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade (discarding the leftover marinade). Grill the marinated chicken breast halves for 4 minutes a side or until fully cooked. Let rest before slicing.
  • Top warm pita bread, top with sliced chicken, lettuce, tomato, red onion, sliced olives, yogurt dressing and feta cheese.
  • Serve immediately!
