Greek Chicken Pitas with Tzatziki Sauce

Greek Chicken Pitas from Kaye's Cupboard 2

If you are looking for a delicious explosion of flavors, this pita is for you! I’ll be honest; I’ve never had Greek food, but if it’s anything like this beauty, I need to find a good Greek restaurant! Each separate ingredient plays off the rest perfectly, and I love that meals like this give the option for everyone to build it how they want.

I love the Greek Pita Flatbread I found at Costco, because it is sturdy enough, but so soft! The chicken is marinated for a few hours, and the spices and onion make the marinade so pretty, I almost included a photo of it! Top the moist chicken off with fresh cucumbers, onions, feta, cilantro, and homemade creamy Tzatziki sauce, and this is a meal you will enjoy every bite of!
