4 servings

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons dried mint, crumbled
  • 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 4 chicken scallopine (4 to 5 ounces each)
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 unpeeled kirby cucumber, chopped
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 pocketless pitas
  • 1/2 cup baba ghanoush (eggplant spread, sold near hummus in the refrigerated section)
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • Whisk the vinegar, mint, red pepper flakes, 1 clove garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a shallow dish. Gradually whisk in 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add the chicken and marinate about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mix the tomatoes, cucumber and the remaining 1 clove garlic in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into 1/2-inch-thick strips. Toss with the vegetables.

  • Brush the pitas with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt. Grill, turning once, until marked. Place a pita on each plate and spread with baba ghanoush. Top with lettuce and chicken salad and drizzle with any juices from the bowl.
