Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Place Greek yogurt, cucumber, dill weed, 2 cloves garlic, white vinegar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, and black pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth; set aside.
  2. Whisk together 4 cloves minced garlic, juice of 1 lemon, red wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and oregano in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  3. Stir in chicken strips and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  5. Remove chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Place chicken on a large baking sheet.
  6. Broil the chicken in the preheated oven until lightly browned and no longer pink in the center, 2 to 4 minutes per side.
  7. Transfer cooked chicken to a plate and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; place each pita bread into the skillet until warm and soft, about 2 minutes per pita.
  9. Serve warmed pita bread topped with chicken strips, yogurt sauce, tomatoes, onion, and lettuce.

Made this using the listed ingredients. I used whole wheat pita bread rounds. Grilled the chicken versus broiling in the oven. I cut the grilled chicken strips into smaller portions and sprinkled them with Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning. Good easy recipe on a hot summer day! This recipe was faceless and was the Recipe Group selection for week 7/7/12. Thanks KarenCanCook for sharing your recipe! I'll definitely make it again as we really liked the Tzatziki sauce!

Made this for Recipe Group...We LOVED this! I was too lazy to drag out the blender, lol, so (earlier in the day) I grated the cucumber and squeezed it dry, then just mixed it in a bowl w/ the rest of the ingredients and refrigerated it to allow the flavors to blend. I marinated my chicken for about 4 hours, only using about 2 tsps. of the oregano b/c I didn't want it to be too overpowering, and that was perfect for us. I cooked the chicken in a pan w/ evoo on the stove instead of broiling it and that worked great. Hubby made several comments on how good these were (and I agree), so that makes this a keeper for us~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

For the Recipe Group: These were so easy and delicious! I prepared as written, but had hubs grill the chicken since it was a gorgeous night. Loved the sauce, heaped it on with lots of fresh veggies. This is a great weeknight dinner. I'll be making these again. Sincere thanks for sharing your recipe with AR.
