Prep time: 10 min | Servings: 4

Wrap up this tasty vegetable mixture, chicken and zingy Canadian Feta cheese in a pita with luscious yogurt dip on the side, and your lunch will be the envy of your co-workers.

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) 2% plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) grated lemon zest
  • 1 large black olive, minced
  • 4 large lettuce leaves
  • 4 large (about 9 inches/23 cm) whole wheat pita breads
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded cooked boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chopped English cucumber
  • 1 cup (250 mL) grape or cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) very thinly sliced red onion (optional)
  • 2 1/2 oz (70 g) diced Canadian Feta cheese
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano


  • In a bowl, combine yogurt, lemon zest and olive. Portion into individual containers or one container, cover and refrigerate until serving, for up to 1 day.
  • Place one lettuce leaf on each pita; arrange chicken, cucumber, tomatoes, onion (if using), Canadian Feta cheese and oregano in a line down the centre of each, dividing evenly. Fold top and bottom of pita over filling, then roll up pita tightly around filling to enclose.
  • Wrap tightly in plastic wrap or waxed paper and refrigerate until serving, for up to 4 hours.
  • To serve, unwrap pita, cut in half crosswise, if desired, and serve with lemon-olive yogurt for dipping or spreading.
