Beastie's Chicken in a Pita

So we call my mom Beastie.  Her name is Betsy and once upon a time, one of my cousins misspelled her name as Beasty and it stuck.  And we love our Beastie.  And Beastie gets all the credit for this quick and tasty meal.


boneless, skinless chicken breasts
lemon pepper marinade
lemon pepper seasoning
plain greek yogurt
lemon juice
salt and pepper

Note: I have not included amounts, because amounts don't matter so much for this one.  You can easily make more or less depending on your needs.


Marinate your chicken.  Longer is better.  But not too long.

While your chicken is marinating, make your cucumber sauce.  Simply peel and slice your cucumbers.  Mix together cucumber slices, plain greek yogurt, minced garlic, a squeeze of lemon juice, dash of dill, and salt and pepper to taste.  You can make this earlier in the day.  Let it hang out in the  fridge.

Once you feel like your breasts are good and soaked (hehe), slice them really thin and coat them with lemon pepper seasoning.

Next, get a pan good and hot.  Add a little oil.  Cook chicken slices, making sure they get good and brown (and cook all the way through).

Dump chicken on pita and top with cucumber sauce.  Enjoy!
