1 tbsp onion salt

1 tsp oregano

Step 2

Marinate for at least 30 minutes, but the longer the better, I marinated it for 6 hours.

Step 3

In a large skillet on medium high heat add olive oil, once hot, cook the chicken thighs.

Step 4

Cook on one side for 6-8 minutes, flip and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Continue with all the chicken.

Step 5

Let the chicken cool down slightly before slicing or chopping to serve on the pita sandwiches.

Pita Sandwiches

Step 1

To make the sandwiches, first prepare the "salad'.

Step 2

Prep the veggies by thinly slicing the red onion, chopping the cucumber, and cutting the cherry tomatoes in half or quarters.

1 red onion

1 English cucumber

1 cup cherry tomatoes

Step 3

Add all the veggies to a large bowl along with all the seasonings, the lemon juice, olive oil and parsley. Mix to combine.

1 red onion

1 English cucumber

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tsp oregano

2 tsp salt

2 tsp black pepper

¼ cup lemon juice

2 tbsp olive oil

½ cup parsley, chopped

Step 4

At the very end mix in the feta cheese so that it doesn't break down even more.

1 cup feta, crumbled

Step 5

To start assembling the sandwiches, warm up each pita on a hot skillet for 30 seconds per side, I like to spray them with a little bit of cooking oil so they get slightly crisp.

4 - 6 pita

Step 6

Start by spreading a thin layer of hummus on the pita, then a layer of tzatziki, the chicken and the cucumber feta salad.
