On the last volume of the Foghorn paper, someone expressed wanting recipes.  I loved that idea and since as a mommy and a student sometimes time and budgets are tight, you can look to this blog for simple, delicious and healthy recipes.  Today’s menu:  Greek Chicken Pitas (6 servings).  The grilled chicken, olives and feta cheese marry well in this fast meal! Here is the shopping list:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts halves

1 cup of Greek salad dressing (you will us 3/4 cup first so measure that out)

8 ounces of romaine lettuce, tear it

1/2 cup of (brine cured) greek olives–these are the black ones not green

1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese

6 wheat pita bread rounds

Now we’re ready to cook!

1-Preheat grill to medium heat.

2-Place chicken and 3/4 cup of dressing into a ziploc bag to marinate for 5 minutes.

3-Grill the chicken for about 5 minutes for side (or until juices run clear) then slice thinly.

4-Combine chicken, lettuce, olives and feta cheese in a salad bowl with the remaining 1/4 cup of greek dressing.  Toss.

5-Cut pita rounds in half and stuff each piece with the mixture.  Serve immediately and Enjoy!!!!
