Yield
4 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces lamb, 1 pita, and 2/3 cup sauce)

Stuff whole wheat pitas with savory strips of lamb and a cool cucumber and yogurt tzatziki sauce for a fresh and flavorful meal from the Mediterranean. Try the recipe with chicken, too.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine rosemary, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and lamb, tossing to coat. Add lamb mixture to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until done.

Step 2

While lamb cooks, combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, cucumber, lemon juice, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and yogurt. Divide lamb mixture evenly among each of 4 pitas, and drizzle with sauce.

Quick and easy for a weeknight dinner.  I use chicken for my teenager who doesn't like lamb, but the lamb is best.

I love tzatziki, so anything with that on it is going in my belly! This is a great base recipe to add things to--hummus, roasted red pepper, thinly sliced red onion, baby greens, and sliced cherry tomatoes spruce it up and add some crunch!

We loved this recipe! I substituted lamb with chicken breast which I sliced into thin pieces (like gyro meat) and then seasoned with recipe ingredients and sauteed. I served on warm whole wheat pita with store bought tzatziki sauce (since the reviews on the sauce stated it wasn't so great) and sliced tomato. I served them with Cooking Light's Rosemary Split Peas soup (my all time favorite!!)Made a quick, healthy, delicious dinner that tasted like I got take out from our favorite Mediterranean restaurant. Will try with lamb next time and will make again and again!

Very good and very authentic!!! Tastes just like I was at a restaurant!!! I did slice the meat a little bit thinner before putting in my pita bread. We made our own homemade tzatziki, that is just heavenly!!!

The lamb was delicious! Even my children loved it. Very easy and quick to make. The tzaziki sauce was just o.k.
