– 1 cup continental parsley finely chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

To marinate chicken, combine lemon juice, oregano, oil, salt, garlic and chicken in a shallow bowl. Cover with cling wrap and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, for tzatziki, place yoghurt and feta in a bowl and blitz with a stick blender (or mash with a fork) until smooth. Add lemon juice, garlic and blitz again to mix. Stir in cucumber, parsley, salt and pepper.

Heat your George Foreman Mega Grill and lightly toast the pita bread pockets (this step can also be done on the BBQ or in your oven). Wrap them in foil until your chicken is done.

Remove chicken from bowl; discard marinade. Place drip tray under the grill and cook chicken with the lid down for 4-­5 minutes or until done. You may need to do this in batches. Rest the chicken for 5 minutes before serving on the pita bread, topped with tzatziki, cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives and shredded iceberg lettuce.
