Pita pockets are quite the delight, as you’re about to find out. First, you have to marinate the chicken breast, then cook the whole mixture in a skillet. This way you get the best results: the flavored juiciness and the irresistible crunchiness. Pair with tzatziki and fresh vegetables.

Ingredients


For the marinade:

1 red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons of lime juice
1 garlic clove, sliced
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, minced
1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves, minced
5 ounces of chicken breast, sliced
salt
pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried thyme

For the pockets:

1 pita bread
2 cups of tzatziki sauce
1 cup baby spinach
1 big tomato, sliced

Steps

  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.
