Greek Chicken Sandwiches

This recipe comes from the Taste of Home Healthy Cooking November 2008 issue. I really liked the sandwich. I did do a few things different then the recipe. Instead of cooking the chicken on the stove I baked it in the oven, mainly for the kids since I was not making sandwiches for them, with some greek seasoning. After the chicken was cooked I shredded it and mixed with the salad dressing. I did not use the other spices called for in the recipe. Overall it was a simple yet tasty dish that will be on our menu again.

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/3 cup caesar salad dressing
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup pitted Greek olives, chopped finely
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
4 pita breads (6 inches), halved
8 lettuce leaves
1 medium tomato, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced

In a large non stick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook and stir chicken over medium heat until no longer pink. Add the dressing, cheese, olives, and garlic powder; heat through.

Line pita halves with lettuce, tomato, and onion; add about 1/3 cup chicken mixture to each.

  1. That looks so good! I have a TOH subscription so I went and bookmarked it. I think I'd use baked chicken too tho. It's usually more tender for sandwiches I think. You know what else I'd change? I'd use raw spinach leaves rather than lettuce. Sort of like a greek salad. With Chicken. On a Pita. YUM!!!

  2. Yes spinach would have been so good. I should have thought of that. I prefer spinach and arugula to lettuce these days.
