crockpot thursday

this is not a crockpot recipe, but it might as well be since it is sooo easy! as the weather warms up i'm always looking for quick recipes that are light & easy while still being healthy & delicious. this is an old stand-by favorite. i recently made it and was pleasantly reminded of why i like it. it fits the requirement of quick, easy, and delicious.

Greek-Style Pitas

3 chicken breasts
1/2 bottle Italian salad dressing
package of whole wheat pitas
1 8 oz. carton plain yogurt
1 lemon, juiced (appr. 2 tbsp)
1 garlic clove
1/2 cucumber, skinned and diced
1 tsp. mint

marinate chicken in dressing overnight or 5 hours. grill chicken and cut into 1-inch chunks. to make dressing combine yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, and cucumber. stuff pitas with chicken and sauce. i also love stuffing sprouts or lettuce and tomatoes in mine. i love the sauce and go a little crazy with that, too.

Sounds yummy...I always want new recipes that don't require the oven this time of year.
