Equipment:

Large Bowl, Plastic Wrap, Large Frying Pan, Medium Bowl, Measuring Cups and Spoons

Utensils:

Fork or Tongs, Knife

Ingredients

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2 chicken breasts

2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, divided

1 cup tzatziki sauce (optional)

4 slices pita bread

1 medium tomato, diced

1 red onion, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Before you begin, wash your hands, surfaces, produce, and utensils.
  2. Combine the lemon juice, yogurt, salt, dried oregano, thyme, and garlic powder in a large bowl and add the chicken breasts, tossing to coat well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil. Add half of the chicken breasts to the pan, shaking off the excess yogurt mixture before adding to the pan. Cook the chicken breasts for about 5 minutes, undisturbed, until browned, then flip and cook the other side until the chicken is cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Set cooked chicken aside, add the additional tablespoon of oil to the pan and cook the remaining chicken breast.
  4. Warm the pita bread in a toaster or in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  5. Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces or pieces that fit onto a pita.
  6. If eating with tzatziki sauce, spread ½ cup sauce onto the warm pita bread. Add tomatoes, sliced red onion, and about 1/2 of a chicken breast.


Tips

  • You could also use chicken tenders in place of chicken breasts. The chicken tenders could also be grilled or baked for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees F, or until cooked through.
