Serves 2

Cucumber Sauce:

  • 60ml Fat free plain yogurt
  • 80ml finely chopped seeded cucumber
  • 1 medium green onion, sliced (1 Tbsp.)
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  • 2 Tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ Tsp dried oregano leaves,
  • Dash salt and pepper, if desired
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 whole wheat pita bread
  • 1 small tomato, sliced
  • 2 thin slices red onion


  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill.
  2. In a small bowl, mix sauce ingredients. Set aside (make 30 minutes or less prior to eating).
  3. In another small bowl, mix lemon juice, oil, and oregano.
  4. Brush lemon mixture over chicken, coating all sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Place chicken on grill.
  6. Cover grill. Cook over medium heat 15 to 20 minutes, turning once. You’ll know it’s cooked when clear juice comes from the cut chicken.

  9. Top with sauce.
