Ingredients

  • 1 large skinless chicken breast
  • rapeseed oil , for brushing
  • small garlic clove , crushed
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 10 cm piece cucumber , grated, excess juice squeezed out
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint , plus a few leaves to serve
  • 2 wholemeal pitta breads
  • 2 red or yellow tomatoes , sliced
  • 1 red pepper from a jar (not in oil), deseeded and sliced

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
SWITCH IT UP

A small bit of lean steak is a healthy alternative to the chicken and is rich in iron, B vitamins and zinc.
