Greek Pita With Tzatziki (See Jane Cook)

I love to cook–that should come to no surprise.  However, sometimes (particularly on weeknights) I need a simple and quick meal that takes little effort.  Once a pita is in the equation, the possibilities are endless; you stuff just about anything in them (take that as you will).

The chicken pita part is easy enough–no recipe needed.  I simply seasoned a chicken breast with salt, pepper, and cayenne (I love spicy), cooked it, chopped it, and stuffed it into a whole-wheat pita with arugula, tomatoes, feta cheese, and this tzatziki sauce.  Honestly, don’t even make this if you aren’t going to make the tzatziki–it’s too good to pass up.  Tip:  if you can handle it, add some sriracha sauce to the tazatziki to continue on the spicy path!

  1. Oh this looks delicious. I don't cook much, but one of the weeknight meals I love it's called Migas. It's more of a Mexican breakfast food, but I love it. Just a few tortillas cut in small pieces, one egg and some spicy salsa and I am a happy girl.

  2. yum! i looove tzatziki sauce. it's so good. my favorite go-to weeknight meals are roasted veggies served with some type of lean chili (turkey or chicken) or grilled protein. easy and quick!

  3. That looks so delicious. I love to cook as well but sometimes it can be hard on the weeknights! simple cooked meals after work are definitely the way to go.

  4. Looks super yummy……I love pitas and tortillas. If I need a quick snack I put a tortilla right over the gas flame on the stove to brown it up…spray butter, a little cinnamon and sugar and I have a quick, healthy snack…

  5. I've never made my own tzatziki, but that sounds fabulous! I love anything stuffed in a pita too and I'm always looking for quick, easy weeknight meals. I'm going to have to try this!

  6. YUM, my mom used to make pita sandwiches for me when I was in highschool… I need to start buying the ingredients and making them myself! I could eat Greek food everyday.

  7. This looks so good! (Minus the chicken for this Vegetarian.) My go-to weeknight meal would probably be Mac & Cheese. Isn't that horrible? I hate to cook! But I only have Mac & Cheese when I'm busy and/or if we're running out of food and need to go grocery shopping.

  8. oo i love tzatziki! my go to meal especially in the spring and summer is cayenne rubbed chicken with an avacado, red onion, lime salsa/relish…so easy and yummy!

  9. My dad loooooves tzatziki sauce! He puts it on gyros. I think my favorite fast meal goes a little like this: I grill a chicken breast, and put all the vegetables I can in the pan, sort of like a stir fry. I just mix it all up and eat it! when I'm extra hungry, sometimes I just make spaghetti in addition!
