this recipe and adapted it to my taste. This will be a repeat again and again.
1 cups Greek Yogurt
Juice of 1/2 lemon (about 1 T)
1 garlic clove,
chopped 1/2 medium cucumber, seeded and diced ( I did not seed it)
1 T kosher salt
1 T finely chopped fresh dill
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Directions: Combine all ingredients, blend, or place in food processor. Chill in fridge for flavors to marry while preparing chicken.
For the chicken:
3-4 breasts of chicken, cut into 1 1/2″ cubes
3 T lemon juice
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. fresh oregano or 1/4 tsp. dried
2 tsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1 clove of garlic, minced
Pitas sprayed or spread with olive oil and sprinkled garlic salt
Combine the spices with the oil and lemon juice. Cut the chicken into cubes; combine with the marinade and let sit 30 minutes. Assemble the skewers; grill for 5 minutes (or longer depending on temp), turning only once after 3 minutes; when done, the cooking juices from the chicken should be clear.
To serve, I sprayed the pitas with olive oil and sprinkled with garlic salt. I then placed them on the grill for 20 seconds or so on each side. Smear with tzatziki sauce, place chicken, sliced tomatoes, and feta cheese on top for garnish and serve. Opa!
It is delicious my friends, and tastes fresh and healthy (mostly healthy).
