Ingredients
  • 2 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme

  3. Heat the pita bread in a frying pan. Lay them out on a flat surface. Spread some tzatziki sauce over the top. Placed the chicken over the top followed by some lettuce, cucumber, onion, and tomato. Fold both ends toward the centre.

Note

As always, you can adjust the seasoning according to your liking. You can also add and omit seasoning if you wish.

I use boneless skinless chicken breast but size can be used as well as they're a bit juicier.

The same rule applies to the toppings. Add, omit, or change what you wish.
