We just love these grilled chicken pita sandwiches for lunch because they are not your typical meat, cheese and bread sandwich. Talk about an upgrade! Not to mention, they’re great for both kids and adults alike! Have the kiddos help make their own by picking out their favorite toppings. You may even get them to try something new!
Grilled Chicken Pita Sandwich Recipe
Makes: about 6 pitas
Total Time: 45 minutes
• 4 tablespoons olive oil
• 3 tablespoons lemon juice
• 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
• 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
• 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
• 1 teaspoon salt
• ½ teaspoon oregano
• ½ teaspoon paprika
• ¼ teaspoon coriander
• ¼ teaspoon black pepper
• 1 ½ lbs chicken breasts, cut into ½” pieces
• pita pockets, cut in half
• red onion
• feta cheese
In a large bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, yogurt, vinegar, garlic, salt, oregano, paprika,
coriander and black pepper. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or marinate in the
refrigerator up to 24 hours.
Heat a grill pan and lightly brush with canola oil. When hot, add chicken and grill several
minutes on each side until done and internal temperature has reached 160°F. Remove from pan
and cover with foil for 5 minutes to retain juices.
Assemble pitas with all of your favorite toppings or arrange toppings in different bowls to let
everyone assemble their own pita.
