Greek Chicken Pita

Greek Chicken Pita

This classic Greek Chicken Pita features tender chicken breast, chopped tomato, refreshing cucumber, and most importantly — crumbled feta cheese. We went with a whole-wheat pita to give this satisfying meal a boost in nutritional value.

Dried oregano, crisp red onion, and tangy, fresh-squeezed lemon juice define the classic Greek flavors in this healthy pita.

Pre-chop all of your veggies at the beginning of the week and take advantage of a pre-cooked chicken breast and you’ll have a fast lunch you can enjoy every day of the week.
