Broiled Greek Chicken with Pitas

Broiled Greek Chicken with Pitas (my way) - from All You magazine

items needed

1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
salt and pepper
1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cucumbers, peeled, cut into 1/4 inch strips
skewers
1 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
wheat flatbread

directions

If you are using, wooden skewers, soak them ahead of time.


Preheat broiler to medium. Place rack 4 inches from heat source.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
Cut the chicken breasts into 1 inch pieces.


Combine oil, garlic and 1 teaspoon salt in a large Ziploc bag.


Add chicken, seal and toss to coat. Set aside while broiler heats.


In a medium bowl, mix cucumbers and yogurt, season with salt and pepper. Slice the cherry tomatoes.



Thread the chicken onto the skewers. Place on baking sheet.


Broil for 12 - 15 minutes, turning once, until chicken is cooked through. I, of course didn't let the skewers soak long enough AND set my broiler to high so my skewers end got burnt!
Serve with cucumbers, tomatoes and flatbread.
