Directions

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; stir in 1 tablespoon yogurt, 1 tablespoon juice, and 2 garlic cloves. Add chicken; toss to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken mixture to pan; sauté 6 minutes or until browned and done, stirring frequently.
  2. While chicken cooks, combine remaining 1/4 cup yogurt, remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice, remaining 1 garlic clove, and tahini, stirring well. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons tahini mixture inside each pita half; divide chicken evenly among pita halves. Fill each pita half with 1 tablespoon cucumber, 1 tablespoon tomato, and 1 1/2 teaspoons onion.

Delicious! I don't like raw garlic so I skipped adding any to the sauce and just put it all in with the chicken. I think I will double the sauce next time, it was so good. The chicken had lots of flavor - a quick and easy enough meal.

Awesome! I was looking to see if I needed to post this and you have me covered. We made these last night using Whole-Wheat Pitas and they were delicious! I will make this again for sure.

We love this! I add more crushed red pepper, grill the chicken and double the sauce. (we are sauce freaks.) Thanks for posting, Lakerdog.
