Chicken Pita with Jalapeno Feta and Tzatziki
IMG_8934
Jill bought me a new cookbook this weekend, Jessica Merchant ‘s Seriously Delish. Looks really good and she has a good point of view. She started out as a blogger and makes interesting but approachable food. www.howsweeteats.com . I am going to give a few a try this week. IMG_8927

Verdict in… great meal. It’s an cacophony of flavors. The chicken… mine turned out perfectly and by roasting the breasts in the marinade it concentrated the lemon into a really sweet and tangy flavor. I sliced the breast and put it back in the pan while I built my pita.

The jalapeno feta is great salty and spicy. Could make a great start to a dip by adding some extra cream cheese and jalapenos. The Tzatiki sauce tied it all together. The creamy cool cucumber and dill gave the chicken and jalapeno feta the hug they deserved. Opa!

Ingredients:
Chicken Marinade
2 chicken breasts
2 lemons juiced
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tbs of fresh minced Dill
¼ olive oil
1 tbs of Red Wine Vinegar
1 tbs of Honey

Directions:
1. Marinate chicken overnight

2. Make the Tzatziki by combing the ingredients and stirring until well combined.

3. Roast a head of garlic by cutting off the top, top of olive oil and salt. Wrap in foil. Also put your jalapenos on foil and place in the oven at 350 for about 45mins. Put your jalapenos in bowl and cover with plastic to let them steam so that the waxy skin can be easily removed. Remove the seeds.

4. I like to roast my chicken so did it along with my garlic. 350 for about 45mins. Glass baking dish and I use all the marinade too.IMG_8931

5. Remove and cool. Make your Jalapeno Feta by combining in food processor until smooth.

6. Warm your pitas and cut the top off so you can stuff it with the cut chicken and sauces. You can add lettuce, red onion, olives, or cucumbers.
