Here's a healthy spin on the classic gyro recipe:

Chicken Pita.jpg

 

Lemon Herb Greek Chicken Pitas

 

Prep/Cook Time:    20 minutes            Number of Servings: 4

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 Whole Wheat Pita rounds (each round cut in half)
  • Garlic powder
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 2 Rotisserie Chicken Breasts, shredded

Tip: you can get pre-shredded rotisserie chicken breast or get a whole chicken and use the leftover for another meal

  • Juice of 1 lemon extra wedges for pitas
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of dried oregano
  • 2 TBSP fresh basil, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Salt-free Greek seasoning
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta
  • Lighthouse OPA Greek Yogurt Feta Dill Dressing or Tzatziki sauce

Tip: You can make your own Tzatziki sauce too!

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lay pita halves on baking sheets & brush lightly with olive oil on both sides.  Then sprinkle both sides with garlic powder and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  2. Bake until they are warm and slightly crispy, but not so hard that you cannot “stuff” them.
  3. Meanwhile add shredded rotisserie chicken to a medium-sized skillet over medium-low heat.
  4. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the chicken and add black pepper, a pinch of dried oregano, fresh basil, and Greek seasoning to chicken.
  5. Toss to coat all sides and cook for about 2-3 minutes to allow flavors to infuse.
  6. Stuff the warm pitas with chicken, diced tomatoes, onions, feta, & Greek yogurt dressing or tzatziki sauce.
