Number of Servings: 4


    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
    Half cucumber
    1/4 cup prepared tzatziki sauce
    4 whole wheat pocketless pitas
    1 tomato, cut into chunks
    1 cup shredded romaine lettuce


Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes. In large bowl, toss together chicken, lemon rind and juice, oil, oregano, salt and pepper; let stand for 10 minutes to marinate.
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.
