Israeli Spice Chicken With Tomato Relish

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Philreb Wright

Mexico meets the Middle East in this dish. Warm some pita bread and fill with sliced chicken and tomato relish for a tasty and light lunch. The spice rub also works great on shrimp! I like to serve this with "Zucchini with Mint and Parsley".

Virtually identical to a Rachel Ray recipe of same name. Excellent grilled chicken! Great with relish. Instant favorite in our house. (Rachel has an additional side Zucchini w/mint & parsley which I haven't tried yet.)
