  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 10 cm piece cucumber, grated, excess juice squeezed out
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint, plus a few leaves to serve



    There are several types of mint, each with its own subtle difference in flavour and appearance.…

  • 2 wholemeal pitta breads
  • 2 red or yellow tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 red pepper from a jar (not in oil), deseeded and sliced


  1. Cut the chicken breast in half lengthways, then cover with cling film and bash with a rolling pin to flatten it. Brush with some oil, then cover with the garlic, oregano and some pepper. Heat a non-stick frying pan and cook the chicken for a few mins each side. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, cucumber and mint to make tzatziki.

  2. Cut the tops from the pittas along their longest side and stuff with the chicken, tomato, pepper and tzatziki. Poke in a few mint leaves to serve. If taking to the office for lunch, pack the tzatziki in a separate pot and add just before eating to prevent the pitta going soggy before lunchtime.

These are really tasty and filling so great for taking into work for lunch. I made them the night before but included a layer of spinach leaves between the bread and the filling to stop the bread getting soggy and it worked really well! Will definitely be making these again.
