Someone has been busy! Greek Chicken Pitas

I am sorry that I haven't updated the blog lately, but I have been busy...working! I did get a second job last week. It isn't official yet, and I am not entirely positive about the whole thing, but it is good to get up and feel productive. The job I found is as a bridal consultant in a store in downtown LA. Sounds great huh!? The downside is that it is in a scary part of town and I don't feel entirely safe walking to my car (I do carry mace). Also, it is owned and staffed by Armenians. They are very nice people, but do not have the same perceptive about service as I do. Their culture is different and they do not relate to Americans very well. Needless to say, I stand out! The upsides are the dresses they carry are expensive, nice dresses, I am getting retail experience, and I will get commissions on dresses that I sell. With this job and the Dream Dinners job I will stay busy, but I will keep you updated on blog posts as much as possible.

The other day I made a some Greek Chicken Pitas. It is a good dish to have for lunch or dinner.

Greek Chicken Pitas
Chicken Tenders
Greek Seasoning
Lemon Pepper
Red Bell Pepper
Lettuce (I only had Arugula..it tasted good)
Feta Cheese
Sour Cream
Yogurt
Lemon
Pita Bread
Option: Tomato (I didn't have any so I put sundried tomatoes in its place for the picture)

Season Chicken Breasts with Greek seasoning and Olive Oil and put into a gallon bag to marinade for at least 1 hour.

Slice Red bell pepper into thin strips.

Spray grill pan and grill peppers until cooked, but still slightly crisp

Grill Chicken tenders on a grill pan until done.


Let cool and slice into thin strips.

Make Greek sauce with 2 Tb sour cream and 2 Tb of yogurt (I didn't have any yogurt so I just used sour cream). Stir in about 1/2 tsp of the Greek seasoning, 1/2 tsp lemon pepper and juice of 1/2 lemon.

Open pita pocket and spread Greek sauce on the sides.

Put in lettuce, feta and tomatoes.


Put chicken and bell pepper slices into pita.

We each ate 2!

They were delicious.
Be creative and add other ingredients if you like!
