How to Cook Oregano Chicken Breast Skewers and Pita With Tzatziki

  1. For the dough:

    Add the flour, dried oregano, baking powder, salt, and dry yeast to a bowl and mix them.

  2. Add the olive oil and knead until you have a dough. Let it rest for 30 minutes.
  3. For the chicken breast:

    Add the cubed chicken breast, garlic, oregano, lime juice, and olive oil to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well to cover the meat with the mixture.

  4. Skewer the meat cubes. You should get 3-4 skewers. Grill on all sides until golden brown.
  5. Generously dust your work surface with flour and knead the dough. Portion it into 4 pieces and set 3 of them aside.
  6. Flatten 1 piece of dough using hands, then place it in a skillet. Cook it both sides until golden brown. This shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes. Do this with the remaining 3 pieces of dough, too.
  7. For the tzatziki:

    Add the Greek yogurt, olive oil, cucumber, dried basil, and garlic to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix until even. Add the lime juice and mix some more.

  8. Serve the chicken skewers with pita and tzatziki sauce.
