Chicken Souvlaki Pita with Tzatziki Sauce

Chicken Souvlaki Pita with Tzatziki Sauce
Serves 5
from Tasty Kitchen

1 Pound Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
4 Teaspoons Cavendar's All Purpose Greek Seasoning
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
12 Ounces Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Whole Cucumber, Chopped
1/2 Whole Yellow Onion, Chopped
2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper

Place chicken in a gallon size zip-lock bag.  Add Greek seasoning and olive oil to bag and massage to coat chicken.  Refrigerate to let marinate for up to 12 hours.  Just before cooking the chicken, prepare the tzatziki sauce by combining yogurt, cucumber, onion and lemon in a medium size bowl.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside.  Grill chicken on a counter-top grill or on an outdoor grill for 3 minutes per side or until the juices run clear.  Let set for a minute then cut into strips.  Place grilled chicken strips and tzatziki in warmed pitas folded in half. Serve with roasted, seasoned potatoes.

This is a really fun recipe, definitely a break from the everyday!  So flavorful and easy!  This recipe along with the Cavendar's seasoning makes a cute little bridal shower gift.
