Ingredients

1 tbsp (15 mL) butter

1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 lb (450 g) boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch (2 1/2 cm) pieces

1 cup (250 mL) diced English cucumber, (about 1/4)
1/2 cup (125 mL) plain yogurt
2 chopped tomatoes

Preparation

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add garlic, onion, oregano, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper and sauté for about 3 min or until softened and starting to brown. Add chicken and sauté for about 5 min or until lightly browned.

Whisk flour into Milk and whisk into skillet; stir in lemon zest. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 min or until sauce is thickened and chicken is no longer pink inside. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, toast or heat pitas. In a bowl, combine cucumber and yogurt. Spoon chicken and sauce on top of pitas, dollop with cucumber yogurt and sprinkle with tomatoes.

Tips

Use the fine side of a cheese grater or a microplane-style grater to grate the lemon zest.

For the Adventurous: Add 2 tbsp (30 mL) tahini to sauce with lemon zest and garnish with 1/4 cup (60 mL) crumbled Canadian feta cheese and black olives.
