¼ cup(s)

Low sodium soy sauce

2 tbsp(s)


1 tbsp(s)

Garlic clove(s)

2 clove(s), large, minced

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. In a shallow baking pan, whisk together lemon juice, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, oil and oregano; add chicken and turn to coat.
  3. Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 25 to 30 minutes, spooning sauce over chicken once or twice during cooking.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, dill and garlic powder.
  5. When chicken is cool enough to handle, slice each piece crosswise into thin strips and place inside pita pocket halves. Spoon 2 tablespoons of yogurt sauce into each pita half. Yields 2 halves per serving.
