Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean boneless leg of lamb
  • 1/3 cup low-salt chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 3 (6-inch) pita bread rounds, cut in half
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced lettuce
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped seeded plum tomato
  • 6 tablespoons chopped onion
  • Yogurt-Mint Sauce

Preparation

  1. Trim fat from lamb; cut lamb into 36 (1-inch) cubes. Combine lamb and next 10 ingredients (lamb through garlic) in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours.
  2. Remove lamb from bag, reserving marinade. Thread 6 lamb cubes onto each of 6 (10-inch) skewers. Place skewers on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and broil 10 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with reserved marinade.
  3. Fill each pita half with 6 lamb cubes, 1/4 cup lettuce, 1/4 cup tomato, 1 tablespoon onion, and 2 tablespoons Yogurt-Mint Sauce.
