Ingredients


1/2 tsp Black pepper (for sauce)
1/2 small Cucumber, peeled (diced, for sauce)
1/2 cup Dill, fresh (chopped, for sauce)
4 tsp Garlic (minced, for sauce)
2 cup Greek yogurt, plain, 2% M.F. (for sauce)
1 1/2 tbsp Lemon juice (for sauce)
1/2 tsp Salt (for sauce)
2 breast Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (pounded into 1/2 inch thickness)

1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1/2 medium Red onion (thinly sliced)
4 medium pita Pita bread, whole-wheat

Instructions


  1. Puree all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  2. Cover and chill until ready to serve. (If you have time, make this a few hours in advance or the night before so that the flavors can marinate).
  3. Season chicken breasts with Italian seasoning. Cook in a large skillet or pan over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side until cooked through. Cut into strips.
  4. Lay pitas on a clean surface. Add lettuce (if desired), chicken, red pepper strips, and onions.
  5. Top with tzatziki sauce and feta (if desired). Fold pita over like a sandwich, or roll it into a “tunnel shape”.
