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).

How to Make Greek Grilled Chicken Pitas


  • 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
