I’ve been known to use cooked leftover chicken for this recipe. Simply shred or chop the chicken and then steep in the marinade cooked rather than raw as called for in the recipe.
1# boneless skinless chicken
2T lemon juice
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t salt
2T olive oil
1T dried oregano
1 c plain low-fat yogurt
1 small clove garlic, pressed or minced
1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded, grated, and wrung out a bit in a clean tea towel
2c finely chopped lettuce—use something crunchy like iceberg or romaine
about 2T vinegar
about 1/4 t salt
about 1/2 t dried oregano
1/2 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
olive oil spray
4 pita bread
1/4 c feta cheese
Cut the chicken into 1” cubes and put into a bowl. Combine the lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, olive oil, oregano. Pour over chicken and marinate, at least 15 minutes.
for the tzatziki: Whisk yogurt until smooth and creamy. whisk in the garlic, add the cucumber.
for the lettuce: Season lettuce with vinegar, salt and oregano.
chop tomatoes, onions, set aside
Spray pita with olive oil spray and brown slightly on each side. Can be done without the spray if you have a decent nonstick pan. Push chicken onto skewers and grill until cooked, or saute them.
Assembly: stick some chicken in a pita. Add sauce, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and feta cheese. Yum!!
