This traditional Greek dish is even easy to make in a small galley-style kitchen. Grill marinated chicken and pile it into warm pita bread with yogurt sauce, vegetables, and feta cheese.

  • Combine tomatoes, diced cucumber, onion, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Toss to combine.

I made this last night with the highly rated Naan recipe on this site and threw everything on the grill. It took a while to make but was phenomenal! My husband thought it was better than our favorite Lebanese restaurant. Garlicky and so good. Will for sure make again! Read More

Great way to use up chicken and peppers (after I've loaded up at Costco). Healthy fresh easy. The leftovers make a great filling for a pita bread sandwich. Read More
