Yield: 4 servings

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas
  • 3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus oil for brushing
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 small clove garlic, finely grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 (6-oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 cups chopped romaine (about 1 small head)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 cup feta cheese
  • 1 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup black olives

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium and lightly brush with oil.
  2. Whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and some pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while whisking.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken breasts all over with 1/4 teaspoon salt and some pepper, then toss with 2 tablespoons of the dressing.
  4. Grill the chicken until nicely marked and it reaches an internal temperature of 165° F(about 4 to 5 minutes per side). Let rest for a few minutes, then slice.
  5. Combine sliced chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, red onions, and feta cheese. Evenly distribute and stuff into 4 pitas. Brush the outside pitas with some of the remaining dressing and grill lightly on each side.
  6. Serve and enjoy.
