GREEK CHICKEN PITAS

Greek food is so flavorful and fresh tasting. And many of the dishes are surprisingly simple to make. Using store bought tzatziki here is a time saver, but if you want to make it from scratch, it's pretty easy. It's just a mixture of plain Greek yogurt, garlic and cucumber pieces. You can skip the tzatziki if you don't like it, then just substitute some hummus to add in more moisture.
Ingredients
  Chicken tenders 1 Pound
  Greek seasoning 1 Teaspoon (Mix Of Oregano, Salt, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder And Paprika)
  Tzatziki sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Pita breads 4 (8 Inch)
  Romaine lettuce 2 Cup (32 tbs), chopped
  Plum tomatoes 2 , sliced
  Cucumber 1 , seeded and cut into strips
  Crumbled feta cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Pam 1
Directions

Spray a large skillet with Pam. Heat on medium high and add chicken. Sprinkle with the seasoning and cook 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned and done throughout.

Slice pitas so you will be able to fill the pocket. Add chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta and tzatziki. I often slice the chicken up first so it gets more distributed throughout the sandwich.
