1 large chicken breast
2 wholemeal pita pockets
Handful of lettuce or spinach leaves
1 tomato, sliced thinly
½ cucumber, sliced thinly
20g good quality feta
2 tbsp. Greek yoghurt
3 tbsp. lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
Sprinkle oregano & thyme
1 tbsp. olive oil
Sprinkle smoke paprika
Sprinkle a little chilli powder – optional
Salt and pepper to taste
In a ziplock bag or a container place your marinade. Cut your chicken breast into chunks and place into your marinade. If using a ziplock bag –zip it up and massage the marinade into the chicken until all coated. Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes or longer if you like.
When ready heat a griddle pan or your BBQ. Skewer your chicken onto 4 metal skewers (2 per person) and place onto grill. Depending on the thickness of your meat cook for a few minutes turning. Take off the grill and rest onto a plate with some foil.
Meanwhile set up your pita pockets onto a plate with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and feta. Place 2 skewers on top of each pita and drizzle with Greek yogurt.
