How to make it

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients. Set aside 3/4 cup marinade.
  • Pour remaining marinade over chicken pieces and stir to combine. Marinate, refrigerated, 2 hours.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add chicken and saute until cooked through. Work in batches as necessary.
  • Transfer chicken to large bowl, removing batches from skillet with a slotted spoon. Cool.
  • Divide evenly among one-quart size freezer bags. Divide reserved marinade evenly among chicken, shaking to distribute (1/2 tablespoon per serving).
  • Seal bag, pressing out excess air. Refrigerate.
  • Wrap pitas in foil (1 per serving).
  • Package cheese in snack bags (1/2 ounce per serving).
  • Place a package of chicken, a pita, and a package of cheese in each of one-gallon size freezer bags.
  • Seal bag, pressing out excess air. Freeze.
  • Yogurt-Dill Sauce: If substituting low-fat or non-fat yogurt for natural yogurt, strain overnight in refrigerator in a coffee filter-lined sieve.
  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl or processor.
  • Beat or process until smooth. Divide evenly among small freezer containers.
  • Cover with a sheet of plastic wrap, pressing down to cling to food. Apply lid. Freeze.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Warm foil-wrapped pitas in oven 10 minutes. Warm chicken in oven or microwave until heated through. Stir Yogurt-Dill Sauce and transform into Tzatziki by adding 1/2 large cucumber which has been peeled, seeded, finely diced or shredded, and drained.
  • Top pita rounds with chicken, Yogurt-Dill Sauce, and crumbled feta. Add fresh, sliced tomato if desired.

    I made this last night for dinner and it was very good! Thank you for the post :) I just went by eye on the measurements and it went fine. One good thing with cooking is you don't have to have exact measurements like you do in baking! (never been much of a baker for that very reason)

    Ok, I made corrections on the measurements.
    On the cutting, it's however you like it, I like mine cut into strips.
    The bags, for storage purposes for leftovers.
    It's a long process to make this, it's not that simple like we all would like to.

    I would like to make this dish, but JEEZE, I'm having to do way too much math to make this recipe simple. Would you please convert your measurements to a more readable format? EX: teaspoons instead of parts of tablespoons; tablespoons instead of fractions of cups; decimals into tablespoons or teaspoons, whichever is appropriate.

    As long as I am dumping on your measurement methodology, are the bite sized chicken pieces cubed or cut in long strips and what is the reason for all the bags? It's only 4 servings.
