Great use for left over chicken. Cucumber yogurt sauce makes this panini special.

Used leftover chicken too and some wonderful naan from the world market. This is a tasty next-day lunch from grilled leftovers. Made for ZWT6 Family Pick but I'll make it again and again this summer. Looney Spoons!

I made this for a lighter late-night dinner. I used "Recipe 28150" for the chicken and "Recipe 91463" for the tzatziki. Once the chicken was cooked, I cut it up and stirred it together with slices of olive and grape tomato (the only ones with flavor at this time of year) and feta cheese. I put this as a filling into tortillas (as with quesadillas) and baked them, and served the tz sauce on the side...so it was a gyrodilla! I'm not sure (even with pre-cooked chx) that I could have done it in 8 minutes, but it was easy, tasty, and healthy.

Very nice lunch, indeed. I sprinkled some Greek seasoning on the chicken per Mischka's recommendation and I am glad I did. I made my own Tzatziki this morning. . .the sandwich would not be the same without it. The only complaint was that I used whole wheat pita bread and it fell apart, turning into a fork and knife sandwich. Made for MAKE MY RECIPE.
