Chicken SouvlakiSubmitted by: CYNTHIA609
12 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp grated lemon rind
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt and pepper
Half red onion, cut into 1 inch wedges
1/4 cup prepared tzatziki sauce
4 whole wheat pocketless pitas
1 tomato, cut into chunks
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
Alternately thread chicken and onion onto 4 metal skewers. Broil on foil lined rimmed baking sheet, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut cucumber in half lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise to make 1 cup.
Spread tzatziki sauce over half of each pita. Push chicken and onion off skewers onto pitas. Top with tomato, cucumber and lettuce; fold over.
Variation: Pork Souvlaki: Replace chicken with pork tenderloin.
Number of Servings: 4
