Chicken Pita

Real Simple has loads of great recipes. This is one I like as I make it the day before and take it to work for my lunch. The Greek touch is also appealing to me!


  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken meat
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup  Greek yogurt
  • 1 cucumber, seeded and grated
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 clove garlic, mashed
  • 4 flat breads or pocketless pitas, warmed
  • 1 small romaine heart
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, cut in quarters


  1. 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.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the yogurt, cucumber, mint, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
  3. Top the flat breads with the romaine, chicken, tomatoes, and tzatziki.
