Chicken Tzatziki Pitas


Makes: 4 Pitas

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: ~50 minutes


  • 1¼ pounds boneless chicken breasts
  • 7 ounces plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 4 large whole-wheat pita pockets
  • 3 cups red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup seedless cucumber, diced thin
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ½ tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix Greek yogurt, cucumber, lemon, dill, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. For best flavor, refrigerate mixture for 30 minutes before serving.
  3. Heat a small amount of cooking spray or oil in a large skillet. Sear chicken breasts for about 5 minutes per side.
  4. Transfer chicken breasts to a baking dish and place in the oven. Continue to cook for 15 minutes per side or until chicken is completely cooked through. Set chicken breasts aside to cool.
  5. Stuff each pita pocket with sliced chicken, tzatziki and red cabbage and serve!
