Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
- 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
- Preheat the grill to medium and lightly brush with oil.
- Whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and some pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while whisking.
- Sprinkle the chicken breasts all over with 1/4 teaspoon salt and some pepper, then toss with 2 tablespoons of the dressing.
