Chicken Souvlaki

Chicken Souvlaki
Makes 2 Servings

2 6” pitas (I used Trader Joe’s)
1 oz. crumbled fat-free feta cheese
¼ cup plain fat-free yogurt (2 oz.)
½ tbsp olive oil, divided
1 tsp minced garlic, divided
¼ tsp oregano
8 oz. chicken
½ cup lettuce
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 tbsp onion, diced

Combine feta, yogurt, ½ teaspoon oil, and ½ teaspoon garlic in a small bowl, stirring well. Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining ½ tsp garlic and oregano to pan, and sauté for 20 seconds. Add chicken, and cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Toast pitas, cut them in half and open each half. Place 1/4 cup chicken mixture in each pita half, and top with 2 tablespoons yogurt mixture, 2 tablespoons shredded lettuce, and 1 tablespoon tomato. Divide onion evenly among pitas. Serve with couscous.

Review: We really liked it you guys! Super creamy and flavorful – I went a little heavy on the garlic especially since I omitted the dill. We’ll definitely have it again but next time I won’t even bother with the couscous – if anything I’ll just do a side of hummus/carrots! There will definitely be a ‘next time’ though – yay! I think I’m going to try many more Mediterranean recipes.
