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

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour 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.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients; chill until ready to serve.
  3. Preheat grill or oven broiler.
  4. Drain 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.
  5. Fill each pita half with chicken, cucumber, olives, tomatoes, onion and cheese. Spoon cucumber sauce on top of each pita half. Serve immediately
