Lately, I have been getting into a routine when it comes to our meals. I tend to turn to the familiar when reaching inside the fridge to see what is going to be for dinner. My husband suggested that I think a little outside the box this week and that is when I thought about making Greek grilled chicken pitas.
I love grilled chicken pitas because you can make them a ton of different ways. Its simple to make them kid-friendly and get your kids involved by having them assemble their own pita. My kids love to help in the kitchen so this is a fun way to get them excited for dinner.
I love the brininess of olives and the tart taste of feta cheese, combine these with the creaminess of the yogurt sauce and cooling cucumber, and you have a hit recipe that is perfect for lunch or dinner. Serve these when guests com over for a fun Mediterranean themed get-together.
