Homemade Chicken Pitas with Jalapeno Whipped Feta & Quick Tzatziki

Seriously Delish, page 208

The title of this one is a mouthful.  One delicious mouthful.

Prep is the name of the game here.  If you want to serve this dish in one day, you are going to need at least two hours.  I tried to plan ahead, and after dinner one night I put together the tzatziki, the whipped feta, and marinated the chicken.

The tzatziki is a winner. Quick, simple, great flavor.  Greek husband approved.

The whipped feta is a play on two recipes that I’ve seen on How Sweet Eats before, but haven’t made.  People rave about them.  We tried a new brand of feta, and we weren’t crazy about it. I don’t remember the name, but we were pretty disappointed.  Overall, the whipped feta wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t amazing either.  Roasted garlic cures all, right?


Cooking the chicken and putting the pitas together the next day was pretty simple.  It would be great meal for a crowd since everyone can make a pita to their liking.

The leftovers from this were awesome.  The pita pictured above was actually from a few days later.  I tossed everything on a salad twice for lunches at work.  Yum.

The only things I’d change are:

  1. The brand of feta cheese I used
  2. The recipe calls for hummus as a topping when serving, but I found that with the whipped feta and the tzatziki, hummus was really overkill.
