4 servings

  • Souvlaki Marinade:
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 pounds split chicken breast, bone and skin removed, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • Tzatziki Sauce:
  • 1 small cucumber, diced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill leaves
  • 1 (8-ounce) container plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Grilled Pita Bread:
  • 1 (1-pound bag) refrigerator pizza dough, at room temperature
  • Flour
  • Toppings:
  • 5 large romaine leaves, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • In large bowl whisk together all the souvlaki ingredients, except the chicken. Reserve 1 1/2 tablespoons for Round 2 Recipe Greek Flat Bread. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and let marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight in the refrigerator.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and add to the pan. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Tzatziki Sauce:

  • In a medium bowl combine all the tzatziki sauce ingredients and set aside.

  • Grilled Pita Bread:

  • Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. On a floured work surface, roll out each portion into 6 to 7 inches in diameter and about 1/8-inch thick.

  • Preheat a grill pan or grill over medium heat.

  • Grill the dough for 2 to 3 minutes per side. The pitas should be cooked through but still pliable and not too crispy.

  • To Assemble:

  • Put a grilled pita onto a plate, top with some cooked chicken, lettuce, tomato, onion and some tzatziki sauce. Repeat with remaining ingredients and arrange on a serving platter.

  • Cook's Note: Reserve the leftover tzatziki sauce, chicken, tomatoes and onion for Greek Flat Bread.
