IMG_6006IMG_6013IMG_6017IMG_6019IMG_6022Ingredients:
4 chicken breasts, pounded to ½ inch thickness
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
½ red onion, thinly sliced
4 multigrain pita pockets
optional: lettuce, feta cheese crumbles

tzatziki sauce:
½ English cucumber, peeled and diced
2 cups cold plain Greek yogurt
4 teaspoons minced garlic
⅓ cup chopped dill, fresh or frozen (may sub 2 tablespoons dried dill)
1½ Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (juice of ½ medium lemon)
½ tsp salt, or to taste
⅛ tsp black pepper

What To Do:
  1. Puree all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor. Cover and chill until ready to serve. (If you have time, make this a few hours in advance or the night before so that the flavors can marinate)
  2. Season chicken breasts with Italian seasoning. Cook in a large skillet or pan over medium heat 5-6 minutes on each side until cooked through. Cut into strips.
  3. Lay pita pockets on a clean surface. Add lettuce (if desired), chicken, red pepper strips, and onions. Top with tzatziki sauce and feta (if desired).
