How to Cook Marinated Chicken Breast and Tzatziki Pita Pockets
- For the marination:
Add the onion, lime juice, garlic, rosemary, oregano, chicken breast, olive oil, and dried thyme to a bowl.
- Season with salt and pepper and mix everything using your hands. Marinate for 30 minutes.
- Transfer the marinade and the marinated chicken breast to a skillet. Cook over medium heat until the chicken pieces turn golden brown.
- Assemble the pockets:
Cut the pita in half. For each pita half do this: butterfly it, spread tzatziki on the interior lower half, add a layer of 1/2 cup baby spinach, then a large dollop of marinade.
