Chicken Gyros Pita Sandwiches

Introduction

A low calorie version of the Greek favorite. Adapted from a Rachel Ray recipe. A low calorie version of the Greek favorite. Adapted from a Rachel Ray recipe.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 lb. ground chicken (ground turkey works well also)
    1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
    1 tsp. dried oregano
    1 tsp. seasoned salt
    1 clove garlic, grated
    1/8 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    1/2 tsp. chili powder

    Mix above ingredients and shape into a 3 inch log. Place on a baking sheet prepared with non stick spray. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 25 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes. Cut into 1/2 inch slices.

    Tzasiki sauce

    8 Tbsp. low fat sour cream
    1/4 small cucumber peeled, finely chopped or grated
    1 clove garlic, grated
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    Juice of 1/4 lemon
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Mix together all Tzasiki sauce ingredients.

    4 whole wheat pita bread
    1 red onion sliced
    1 tomato sliced or chopped
    3/4 cucumber, sliced
    8 lettuce leaves
    8 Tbsp. crumbled low fat feta cheese

    Warm pita and cut in half. I use Trader Joe's whole wheat pitas (100 calories for 1 whole pita). Divide meat slices into
    4 portions and place into pita halves. Place 1 tbsp. of Tzasiki sauce on each half. Garnish sandwiches with feta cheese, onions, lettuce, cucumber and tomato.
