Greek Chicken Stuffed Pitas!! The easiest lunch or dinner you’ll make this week!

Greek Chicken Stuffed Pitas from (@whatsgabycookin)

If you haven’t taken a gander at the condiments section of this website you’re missing out. Theres dips / sauces / spreads and everything you could possibly want in your life including the best homemade tzatziki recipe of all times. It’s my mission in life to slather that sauce on just about everything like todays Greek Chicken Stuffed Pitas!

Here’s the run down. Either buy a rotisserie chicken from the store or make your own. I buy them store bought all the time – Whole Foods has these delish lemon rosemary roasted chickens that literally save my life on a weekly basis (and side note – if you need some ideas on how to jazz up a store bought rotisserie chicken – your wish is my command!)

Remove the chicken breasts, shred them up and then toss them with the homemade tzatziki. Stuff the chicken mixture, avocado, feta, red onions and cucumbers in a pita pocket and you’re on your way to a delicious and easy meal that took almost no time to throw together.
