You might want to double the recipe, because you're going to want leftovers for lunch the next day - guaranteed! Make extra Greek Seasoning as well - it's fantastic with any other recipe that calls for it.
Cuisine: Greek
Serves: 4
  • 1½ lbs chicken breast, pork, lamb or beef, cut into thin strips (note: the chicken will be drier than other meats because of the low fat content)
  • 3-4 tablespoons Daring Gourmet Greek Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, cut in half and then thinly sliced
  • Toppings: Finely shredded red cabbage, thinly sliced onions, chopped tomatoes
  • 8 whole wheat pitas of flatbreads (2 each)
  • Daring Gourmet Tzatziki Sauce
  • Dried Sumac for sprinkling on top (optional)
  1. Add the Greek Seasoning to the meat, toss to combine, and let marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the chicken strips and cook until golden brown on all sides. Add the sliced onions and continue to saute until the onions are tender and translucent, about 5-7 minutes. If the mixture is too dry, add a little more olive oil. Add more Greek Seasoning to taste.
  3. Wrap the pitas/flatbreads in aluminum foil and warm them in the oven.
  4. Spread ¼ cup of the chicken mixture on each pita and top with red cabbage, onions, tomatoes and drizzle with tzatziki sauce. Sprinkle with dried sumac (if using). Serve immediately.
