Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ Teaspoon oregano
  • 1 Cup low fat plain yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cucumbers, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • ½ Cup Kalamata olives, pitted, cut in half
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 4 pita bread pockets, cut in half

Directions

In a small bowl, make garlic mixture by combining garlic and oregano.  Place chicken on baking sheet and sprinkle with half of garlic mixture.  Bake Crispy Chicken Strips according to package directions.

While chicken is cooking, mix together the yogurt, lemon juice, cucumbers and remaining garlic mixture.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

When chicken is cool enough to handle, cut into smaller pieces.  Divide the chicken, yogurt sauce, tomatoes, olives and pepper among the pita pockets.

Greek Salad Shopping Tip

Stock up on good quality extra-virgin olive oil, feta cheese, Kalamata olives, red wine vinegar, oregano, and lemons – these ingredients are central to Greek cuisine

Greek Salad Cooking Tip

Simplicity is the secret to Greek cuisine, so paying attention to details such as marinating, seasoning well, and using only the freshest ingredients is key.

Greek Salad Wine Pairing

Salads with vinegar-based dressings don't go well with wine. Albariño, torrontés, or riesling with seafood or poultry salads in mayonnaise- or cream-based dressings; pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillion, or grüner veltliner with salads with lemon juice-based dressings.
