There’s just something I love about freshly chopped veggies paired with grilled chicken and a lime-y sauce. This Mediterranean Chicken Pita Tacos Recipe is easily thrown together in a matter of minutes, making them the perfect weeknight meal.
How to make pita tacos:
These tacos are incredibly simple to make. While we think they taste best made with a pita, you can easily substitute it for flour or corn tortillas.
The recipe starts with grilled chicken, diced. We usually use a pre-made grilled chicken (you can find it in the frozen section), but you could use rotisserie chicken or leftovers, too.
In a small bowl, toss the chicken with diced tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion. To make sure you get even, quick cuts, you’ll want to use a sharp knife (the better quality of knife, the better the cuts will be).
Toss the vegetables and chicken with red wine vinaigrette and set aside. Next, you’ll want to make the lime crema.
How to make lime crema:
The topping on these pita tacos is what seals the deal. Just a few simple ingredients combined make the perfect sauce to finish them off. In a small bowl, mix together:
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- zest of one lime
- juice of one lime
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
It’s perfectly tart, with just the right amount of citrus tang. You can use lime juice, but we think the flavor is a lot better when you use a fresh lime for zest and for the juice.
Evenly spread the chicken and vegetable mixture over each pita (we prefer whole wheat pitas), and then top each one with crumbled feta cheese, chopped cilantro, and the lime crema.
