How to Make Marinated Chicken Breast and Tzatziki Pita Pockets

  1. For the marination:

    Add the onion, lime juice, garlic, rosemary, oregano, chicken breast, olive oil, and dried thyme to a bowl.

  2. Season with salt and pepper and mix everything using your hands. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. Transfer the marinade and the marinated chicken breast to a skillet. Cook over medium heat until the chicken pieces turn golden brown.
  4. 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.

  5. Top with 3 tomato slices and, finally, with more tzatziki. Flip the pocket’s upper half back into place.
