  • 4 tablespoons  fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons  minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon  dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1 1/2 pounds  boneless skinless chicken breast, cut diagonally crosswise into 1-1/2-inch-thick pieces
  • 1/2 cup  finely chopped cucumber
  • 6 4 inches  pitas, halved horizontally
  • 2 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil plus additional for grill
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch-thick rings and seeded
  • 3/4 pound  beefsteak tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 1/2pound piece feta, preferably Greek, cut into 1/3-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 cup  pitted olives, preferably kalamata
  • 1 small head of romaine lettuce, leaves separated

Directions

1. Stir together 1/2 cup yogurt, 2 tablespoons juice, 1 tablespoon garlic, and oregano in a resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, reseal bag, toss to coat evenly with marinade and chill, loosely covered, for at least 15 minutes and up to 1 day.

2. Whisk together remaining 1 cup yogurt, 2 tablespoons juice, 1-1/2 tablespoons garlic, and 1/4 cup cucumber for dressing; chill, covered, until ready to serve.

3. Preheat outdoor grill or a grill pan and lightly oil rack or pan.

4. Brush cut sides of pita evenly with oil and grill on rack over moderately high heat, turning once, until golden brown, and slightly crisp, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding excess marinade, and grill with bell pepper over moderately high heat, in batches if necessary, turning until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes for pepper and 6 minutes for chicken. Transfer pepper and chicken, as grilled, to a plate.

5. Arrange 1 pita half on each of 6 plates and top evenly with tomato, pepper, feta, chicken, olives, and remaining cucumber. Drizzle with some of dressing; salt and pepper to taste. Top with remaining pita half. Serve with extra dressing and romaine leaves on the side. Makes 6 servings.
