Marinated Chicken Pita Sandwich


This chicken pita sandwich is an extremely easy and simple sandwich but very tasty. You do need to marinate the chicken at least 3 hours. I usually do it overnight.

2 sandwiches


  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • teaspoon pepper

  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed

  • 1 pocket bread round, cut in half

  • 1 small onion, sliced

  • 1 tomato, sliced

  • ½ cup plain yogurt


  1. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt, oregano, garlic powder, and pepper in a large resealable bag. Add chicken cubes, mix well, and allow to marinate in the refrigerator 3 hours or overnight.

  2. Pour chicken and marinade into a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  3. Stuff each half of pita pocket bread with chicken, onion, tomato, and yogurt; serve while still hot.
