Chicken Pita Wraps


I'm not into traditional gyros simply because I don't like the lamb. I like the rest of it, though, so I've improvised through the years using grilled chicken. I think it makes this dish pretty darn healthy as well.


3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Marinade:
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2t dried oregano or 1T fresh, chopped very fine
  • 1/2t sea salt
  • 1/2t pepper
  • 2T olive oil
  • 1/2t garlic powder

chopped lettuce
chopped onion
diced tomatoes
diced cucumbers
garbanzo beans
feta cheese
4 pita wraps
Cucumber Sauce


Place chicken in a large ziploc bag. Whisk marinade ingredients together in bowl, and pour over chicken in bag. Marinate at least 30 minutes on counter or 2 hours in fridge. Grill chicken until no longer pink. Slice into bite size pieces.

I like to wrap the pitas in foil and place on the grill with the chicken for the last couple minutes to heat them. You could also do it in the microwave or oven.

Serve with toppings. I use garbanzo beans, but you could substitute hummus if you prefer.

I did something similar for lunch today for the same reasons - not a lamb fan, but love the whole flat bread sandwich idea.
