Ingredients

  • 1 package pocket pitas
  • CHICKEN MARINADE:
  • 2 tsp. white vinegar
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. dried oregano
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup olive oil1 t. rosemary
  • 1 Tbs. chicken base or bouillon
  • 6-8 chicken breasts
  • 3 to matoes diced into chunks
  • lettuce shredded
  • 1/2 large yellow onion optional--I don't like raw onion
  • 1 cup feta cheese
  • CUCUMBER CREAM SAUCE
  • 1 cucumber peeled and grated
  • 2 small plain yogurts or about 1 1/2 cups
  • 2 T. mayonnaise don't use low fat or fat free, it doesn't taste as good
  • Juice of one lemon or more if you like it lemony
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. dried dill
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

Instructions

  • For added flavor in your pita (if you are a saucy person like me), you can add Ken's Lite Ceasar dressing. The flavors go perfectly together.
  • Place chicken breasts, olive oil, rosemary, chicken base, lemon juice, thyme, oregano, vinegar, salt & pepper, and water in a crock pot. Cook on medium high heat for 4-6 hours, or until tender. When cooked, shred chicken into large chunks. For cucumber sauce add the above ingredients and chill. In the pita pocket put the chicken, cucumber sauce, tomatoes, feta, and lettuce. Serve with an extra squirt of lemon. Yum!
