Ingredients

  • 12 oz chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 red onion cut into 1 inch (2.5 cm) wedges
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/4 cup prepared tzatziki sauce
  • 4 whole wheat pocketless pitas
  • 1 tomato cut into chunks
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce

Method

Cut chicken into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. In large bowl, toss together chicken, lemon rind and juice, oil, oregano, salt and pepper; let stand for 10 minutes to marinate.

Alternately thread chicken and onion onto 4 metal skewers. Broil on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut cucumber in half lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise to make 1 cup (250 mL).

Spread tzatziki over half of each pita. Push chicken and onion off skewers onto pitas. Top with tomato, cucumber and lettuce; fold over.

Serve with our Greek Tzatziki recipe.
