Greek Grilled Chicken Pitas

This is from the Taste of Home website. It was a great recipe as written, but I add mint and Kalamata olives when I make these. So I've added them to the ingredient list because I think those two changes make the pitas even more delicious. They're pretty filling, so I don't always serve side dishes to go along with the pita pockets, though I will sometimes include a few slices of fruit (fresh or canned, depending on what I have on hand).

CUCUMBER SAUCE

1 c

Step-By-Step

1Pour vinaigrette into a large re-sealable plastic bag. Add the chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

2In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients; chill until ready to serve.

3Preheat grill or oven broiler.

4Drain and discard marinade. Grill or broil chicken breasts until done, turning halfway through cooking to ensure even cooking on both sides, about 5 to 8 minutes each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. Cut chicken into thin strips.

5Fill each pita half with chicken, cucumber, olives, tomatoes, onion and cheese. Spoon cucumber sauce on top of each pita half. Serve immediately
