In KID FREIENDLY, MAIN DISHES

Easy. Simple. Quick.

These words describe Greek Chicken Pitas. I really can’t say enough positive things about this recipe because it really is THAT good!!

I have no idea where I originally came up with this meal. Maybe I saw it online or in a cooking magazine or from a friend. I’ve been making it for about six years now & my whole family loves it!

Kids especially love this meal because they like to serve themselves & they can pick & choose what they want in their pita.

Ok let’s get to the recipe!!
