Don’t these pitas look mouthwatering? Just looking at these pictures makes us want to go back in time to the day we had these for dinner. These aren’t just any chicken pitas: they are stuffed with homemade feta fries! What can we say, everything is just betta with a little feta..

Here’s how to make these bad boys:

Chicken souvlaki
If you can, marinate your chicken thighs 2 hours to overnight before grilling. Don’t worry if you don’t get the chance, we didn’t and it was still delicious! To serve two people, use about 350g (or 4 small) chicken thighs. Marinate them in 3 tablespoons of olive oil, the juice from half a lemon, a tablespoon of dried oregano and a clove of minced garlic. Grill the chicken pieces in a (grill) pan for about 10-15 minutes.

Feta fries
For two people, use two medium sized potatoes and steam them in the microwave for about 2 minutes on medium high. Once soft, slice them up into the desired thickness. Heat up some vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry your fries until they are nearly done: then, crumble in your feta. Once the feta starts to melt and stick to the fries, you’re done!

Tzatziki
Grate up half a cucumber and then press out a little bit of the juice in a strainer, so your tzatziki isn’t too runny. Mix the cucumber with about 400g of Greek yoghurt, a tablespoon of olive oil, one clove of minced garlic and the juice from half a lemon.

Assemble
Place your (large) pitas in the grill pan for about a minute on each side to get those nice grillmarks. Stuff your pita with lettuce, sliced tomato and red onion, followed by the chicken and feta fries. Finish off with a good dollop of tzatziki!

This is one of the most delicious looking things you could put on your dinner table: we could just not wait to get our hands on these pitas! It’s okay to be a little messy sometimes. If a feta fry happens to fall out, it’s totally fine: they’re even better dipped in some extra tzatziki..

Love,

Cheese and Chinese
