My Greek Chicken Meatballs are one of my most popular recipes, and for good reason. Despite being easy to throw together, they’re big on flavor (and healthy to boot). If you’re a fan of that recipe, then you are going to LOVE these Greek Chicken Pita Sandwiches. These sandwiches are loaded with flavorful chicken, tangy tzatziki, and fresh veggies, all wrapped up in a soft pita. They’re perfect to throw together for a weeknight meal, and leftovers make for a dang tasty lunch the next day.

Making Greek Chicken Pita Sandwiches

These are simple to throw together, and a lot of it can be done ahead of time so that you can assemble a sandwich at a moment’s notice.

First, you’ll prep and marinate your chicken. You’ll need:

  • Boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • Nonfat Greek yogurt
  • Fresh dill (or use dried if you can’t find fresh)
  • Lemon juice + zest
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley, cumin

Mix up your marinade and toss the chicken in it to fully coat. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but up to 6 hours. Once ready to cook, spray your air fryer tray/basket well and air fry at 375F for 9-11 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked and has an internal temp of 165F+.

Meanwhile, wash and chop your veggies. I use cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, and some lettuce as a base in the sandwiches. Set aside. Mix up your tzatziki (more details below), and then you’ll put it all together to make the sandwiches! To keep these WW friendly, I use Joseph’s Low Carb Flax Pita (1 WW point each).

The best tzatziki

I personally like to mix up the Tzatziki (a simple Greek yogurt sauce if you’ve never had it) ahead of time and let it sit in the fridge a bit to let the flavors marry. It’s tangy and pairs perfectly with the chicken and veggies in these sandwiches. It consists of:

  • Nonfat greek yogurt, I use Fage 0%
  • Grated cucumber
  • Garlic
  • Lemon juice
  • White vinegar
  • Salt, pepper, dill

Making it is as easy as stir, taste, adjust to your preference, and enjoy! Store tzatziki in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. It’s delicious on these sandwiches as well as just about anything else (and makes a great WW friendly dip for chips/veggies too).
