Chicken Kabobs in Pita Bread


Makes 4 servings


1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 8 ounces), cut into 1-inch cubes
2 large rounds pita bread
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Parsley (optional)


  1. Mix oil, lemon juice, salt, oregano, garlic powder and pepper in medium glass bowl.
  2. Add chicken to oil mixture; toss to coat completely. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Thread chicken onto 4 small metal skewers.
  4. Place kabobs on greased broiler pan. Broil about 5 inches from heat until chicken is golden, 8 to 10 minutes; brushing frequently with marinade. Turn kabobs over and brush with marinade. Broil until chicken is done, 5 to 7 minutes longer.
  5. Cut each pita bread in half; gently pull each half open to form a pocket. Remove chicken from 1 kabob and place inside each pocket; top with onion, tomato and yogurt. Garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve hot.
