Greek inspired chicken and tzatziki plate

Standard

ImageI sit before you a satisfied woman because I literally just licked my plate  after eating tonight’s creation you see here.

Recipe

1lb chicken, chopped

1.5 TSP Sea Salt

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 TBSP olive oil,

1.5 TBSP curry powder (optional )

Tzatziki Sauce

6-6 oz Greek yogurt ( I used  Fage 2% because I wanted it creamy)

3 TSP cayenne powder

3 Tsp lemon juice,

4 slices cucumbers, finely chopped

1 pinch dried thyme

1 pinch dried basil

1 pinch sea salt

Mix all garlic, salt, curry and olive oil with chicken and refrigerate to marinate for at least 30 minutes ( I left mine for a few hours).

Cooking

Mix all ingredients for tzatziki sauce together and refrigerate.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees to prepare for pita; warm pita for 5 minutes

Brown chicken in saute pan on medium high heat in 1 tsp of olive oil until golden brown- about 3 minutes per side . Add 2 TBSP water  to pan and lower heat to medium. Cover and set timer for 20 minutes, turn periodically. 

Serve with chopped lettuce to get your greens in too!
