Instructions

1

Set the oven to the High broil setting. Place the oven rack as close to the heating element as possible. If you have a pizza stone, leave it in your oven so that the sandwiches can sit on it.

2

​To marinate the chicken, use my Broiled Chicken Ladolemono recipe which makes a bigger batch or do the following:

3

​When seasoning a very small batch of chicken strips, sprinkle the seasoning on top as if you were sprinkling salt on fried eggs.

My favorite spices for seasoning chicken breast are:

5

salt

6

​red pepper flakes (just a few flakes) or ground black pepper

7

garlic powder

8

cumin powder

9

crushed, dried oregano

10

​Begin by drizzling about 1-2 tablespoons olive oil over the chicken, then season with the spices on both sides.

11

​Broil the chicken 5-6 minutes on each side. Remove from oven, cover with foil and allow to rest while preparing the sandwich.

12

​Place the baby spinach leaves over the pita, top with tomato and onion slices, mozzarella and feta cheese.

13

Place the pita on the pizza stone in the oven. If you do not have a pizza stone, just place the pitas on a metal baking pan.

14

​Broil 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted and bubbly.

15

Chop the chicken and place on top of the melted cheese.

16

Fold the pitas over and serve!
