After making all these new recipes lately, I decided to ask Ryan what he thought of all of them...and which ones were worth making again. This Chicken Pita with Tzatziki definitely made the cut! I will be making this many more times in the future I feel. It is simple and easy to make, but super delicious. The Tzatziki (aka: Greek cucumber sauce) added a lot of flavor and tasted even better than the cucumber sauce I've had on restaurant Gyros!
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 8)
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- kosher salt and black pepper
- 1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 cucumber, seeded and grated (about 1 1⁄4 cups)
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
- 1/2 small clove garlic, finely chopped
- 4 flat breads or pocketless pitas, warmed
- 1 small romaine heart, leaves torn if large - (I used fresh spinach instead of romaine)
- 8 cherry tomatoes, quartered - (I cut up the larger plum tomatoes)
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with the cayenne, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Cook until cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes per side. Cut into bite-size pieces.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the yogurt, cucumber, mint, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
- Top the flat breads with the romaine, chicken, tomatoes, and tzatziki.
