Chicken, Cucumber and Kalamata Olive Pita Pockets

Vickie Parks


This a quick and tasty snack or lunch dish. Using leftover chicken makes the preparation go rather quickly. It's pretty versatile too, because you can easily increase or decrease any of the ingredients to suit your preferences, and it'll still be tasty and quick. The Kalamata olives add a wonderful tang to the filling, and the cucumbers add a refreshing crispy touch.

This is my own recipe that I created for a Greek cooking challenge.

I submitted the ingredients on another site just to get the nutritional data, and it listed it as 283.4 calories per serving.

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients together (except the pita bread) in a medium size mixing bowl. Adjust the amount of yogurt to reach the "salad consistency" you desire, just enough to hold the ingredients together.
