“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.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 30 to 40 minutes.
  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.
  9. Heat the pita bread on the grill until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Top each heated pita bread round with chicken from 1 skewer, 1 to 2 spoonfuls of yogurt sauce, and tomato salad. Top with feta cheese slices.

My husband wouldn't stop talking about how much he liked this recipe. It is very good! a lot of steps and a tad time consuming to make but the components can be made in advance to make dinner time prep faster. will for sure be making again.
