What’s for Dinner: Grilled Chicken Pita Pockets

We usually never get pita bread in our house. But a week or so ago, when we ordered takeout from a local Mediterranean place, they also gave us a packet of pita bread with our order for some reason.
I had been trying to think of what to make with it to make use of it. Of course, the first thing that popped in my head days ago was pita pockets. But I don’t like how dry and bland they usually are. To make it more tasteful, I added a bunch of spices to the chicken marinade before grilling it and also to the sauce. Surprisingly, it turned out great!
As usual, this was another quick fix! I may love cooking, but by no means do I have the patience for things that take forever to make. Easy, fast, and delicious are the criteria in my book!
How I made it:
  • I marinated the chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, a little onion powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper and lemon juice. I grilled the chicken and then cut it across the grain.
  • For the sauce: I mixed yogurt, a dash of water, garlic powder, pepper, chili powder and cayenne pepper.
  • To assemble: I mixed coleslaw and cucumbers with the chicken and sauce and put it in the warm pita (which I halved).
