Marinated Chicken Pita Recipe

We tried this last night for the first time, it was really good!
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • About 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • pita bread
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  1. Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, oregano, garlic powder, and pepper in a large resealable bag. Add chicken cubes, mix well, and allow to marinate in the refrigerator 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Pour the chicken and marinade into a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink. Stuff each half of the pocket bread with chicken, onion, tomato, and yogurt; serve while still hot.
This would also be good with tzatziki sauce instead of the yogurt. It was quick, easy, and really tasty!
