I will fully admit that one of my least favorite genres of cuisine is Greek food. Now before you start throwing stones at me and consider me to be a culinary clown, hear me out.
I have yet to eat at a worthy Greek restaurant…. Anytime I’ve eaten Greek cuisine out, the meat has been extraordinarily dry to the point where actually swallowing a piece of chicken was painful. In addition, anytime I’ve gotten a sandwich in a pita, the pita was equally as dry, and tasted more like cardboard than a fluffy pita.
So with that being said, I have kind of steered clear of the whole Greek food scene. However, I absolutely love cooking with the ingredients commonly used in Greek cooking like Greek Yogurt, Lemon, Cilantro, Cucumber, and Greek Spices. With that, I created this delicious meal of juicy Yogurt marinated Chicken made with a homemade Harissa Paste (so delicious) stuffed in a soft pita with homemade Tatziki Sauce.
This is a super easy (and healthy) recipe, which is great for both lunch or dinner! – If you wish to make this even healthier, skip the pita and toss the chicken and tatziki with some Romaine Lettuce to make a salad!
