4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup chopped English cucumber
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4 green leaf lettuce leaves
2 plum tomatoes, cut into 12 slices
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 ounces feta cheese, sliced
2 whole-wheat pitas, cut into wedges
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor; process until ground. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions; shape each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan. Add patties to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side.
Combine yogurt and next 4 ingredients; stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place 1 lettuce leaf on each of 4 plates. Top with tomato slices; sprinkle with black pepper. Divide cheese evenly among servings. Arrange 2 patties on top of tomato mixture; top each serving with about 2 tablespoons yogurt mixture. Serve with pita wedges.
Delicious and very filling. Made the chicken exactly as written. It was very spicy - lots of garlic and using fresh oregano was great. Yes, it's a little dry, but it's chicken breast - that's what it will be! If you use 1/2 boneless chicken thighs that would make it a bit more moist, just re-figure the nutrition. I used fresh, store bought (from my local Sprouts) tzatziki sauce instead of making my own.
I also thought the chicken was a little dry, but the flavors more than made up for it! The garlicky chicken, salty feta, cool & tangy yogurt mixture, crispy veggies....yum! Large portions, too. Nice meal on a very warm spring evening.
I was proud of myself for making my own ground chicken! Much easier than I ever thought and I was happy my little food processor made it happen. That stated, I did think the patties were dry...not sure how that could be improved. Basically, I made sure to slather on the tzatziki and every bite had to include some of the feta cheese to make the texture creamier. The flavor was decent, but the moisture factor was a definite negative.
