"This traditional Greek dish is even easy to make in a small galley-style kitchen. Grill marinated chicken and pile it into warm pita bread with yogurt sauce, vegetables, and feta cheese."

  2. Place shredded cucumber in a fine mesh sieve and press out excess liquid; allow to drain for 15 minutes.
  3. Combine yogurt, 2 cloves minced garlic, shredded cucumber, dill, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside in the refrigerator to chill.
  4. Place chicken in a bowl and add the oregano, 2 cloves minced garlic, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; stir thoroughly and set aside in the refrigerator to chill for 20 minutes.
  5. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  6. Combine tomatoes, diced cucumber, onion, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Toss to combine.
  7. Skewer the marinated chicken.
  8. Grill the chicken skewers, squeezing with juice from 1/2 a lemon while cooking, until browned and no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes on each side.

I made this last night with the highly rated Naan recipe on this site and threw everything on the grill. It took a while to make but was phenomenal! My husband thought it was better than our favorite Lebanese restaurant. Garlicky and so good. Will for sure make again!
