“A luscious Lebanese chicken pita sandwich much like a gyro but not so overpowering. The chicken is best when grilled but can be done in the oven; the whole thing is wrapped up in a yummy pita (the soft, flat kind, not pocket bread) with garlic-cucumber sauce plus lettuce and tomatoes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinate chicken cubes, white wine vinegar, olive oil, oregano, thyme and garlic together overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. The next day, prepare a grill or preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Thread chicken cubes onto the prepared skewers, season to taste with salt and grill or bake in a 350 degree F oven for about 15 minutes, until there is no pink inside.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the garlic-cucumber sauce by combining the diced cucumber, yogurt, garlic and salt and pepper.
  4. To serve, remove chicken from skewers. Spread pita breads with the garlic-cucumber sauce and top with lettuce, onion, tomato and the chicken cubes. Fold up and serve immediately.
