    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    Tender marinated chicken and a creamy cucumber yogurt sauce tucked into a pita, topped with lettuce and tomato if you like. Sounds like a great lunch to me! Cooked in or outside! Note: time to make does NOT include 1 hour marinating time. from TOH... ZWT Greek and US Regional - East Coast

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine lemon juice, oil, 1/2 t of the garlic, mustard and oregano in a gallon zip top plastic bag.
    2. 2
      Add chicken and seal bag.
    3. 3
      Turn bag and gently move chicken around to distribute marinade evenly.
    4. 4
      Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
    5. 5
      In a small bowl combine cucumber, yogurt, dill and remaining garlic. Cover and refrigerate until serving. (NOTE: Cucumbers have a lot of moisture in them so if you want your sauce to be less runny really drain them well and squeeze the water out if you want.).
    6. 6
      Drain chicken, discarding marinade.
    7. 7
      In a large nonstick skillet saute the chicken for 7-8 minutes or until juices run clear.
    8. 8
      Spoon half the chicken on each pita and top with cucumber mixture and sliced onion.
    9. 9
      Lettuce and tomato may be added if you like.
    10. 10
      Fold in half and enjoy.

      Did not like this at all. Chicken was too lemony, and the sauce was too bitter.

      We were disappointed in this. The chicken was good, but we did not care for the sauce. This could be because we frequent the best greek place in the state and are used to their sauce. I'll keep the marinade recipe (the fresh lemon juice makes it!!), but I think I will look for another sauce.

      I made it according to the recipe, except for the cucumber sauce. It was a little bland, so I added 1t garlic & 1/4t of salt. It was awesome! Thank you so much!! The bitterness that someone experienced may be from the cucumber itself being bitter. It's good to taste them before adding them to any recipe.
