greek chicken pitas


there's a greek restaurant in san antonio that has the BEST chicken pita sandwiches. whenever i go there to visit my family, i always try to work in a trip to satisfy my craving. i was seriously wanting one of these the other night, but since a road-trip seemed a little much for a sandwich, i tried to recreate it at home. :)

greek chicken pitas
makes 4 sandwiches

you'll need:
2 chicken breasts, bone-in, skin-on
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing (store-bought or homemade)
2 cups romaine lettuce, sliced
1/2 cup red onion, sliced
10 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1/2 cup kalamata olives, sliced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup cucumbers, sliced
1/2 cup tzatziki, store-bought or homemade
4 whole wheat pitas, cut in half and split open

preheat oven to 350. place chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet, skin side up. rub olive oil on tops and sprinkle with salt and pepper. cook in 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes. allow to cool. remove the skin and bone and shred chicken using 2 forks in a bowl. pour balsamic dressing over chicken and stir to coat completely.

into each pita pocket, layer chicken, lettuce, red onion, tomatoes, olives, cucumbers, and feta as desired. top with a dollop of tzatziki.

and you're done! an easy, no-fuss, super yummy meal. to make it even simpler, use rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. go greek tonight!
