From the Test Kitchen

In this flavorful dish, warm pitas are filled with sweet sautéed onion and chicken coated with fragrant vadouvan curry powder, which finds cooling contrast from a layer of creamy tzatziki. We're serving them with a crisp, refreshing side of cabbage dressed with sweet chili sauce.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

If you prefer to use an oven to warm the pitas instead of a microwave, preheat the oven to 375°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion.

Make the slaw
2 Make the slaw

In a large bowl, combine the sliced cabbage, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, sweet chili sauce, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the chicken & onion
3 Cook the chicken & onion

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the curry powder to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and sliced onion in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the chicken is browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

Warm the pitas
4 Warm the pitas

Meanwhile, if using the microwave, wrap the pitas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through and pliable. If using the oven, wrap the pitas in foil and place directly onto an oven rack. Warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through and pliable. Transfer the warmed pitas to a work surface and carefully unwrap.

Spread the tzatziki onto the warmed pitas; top with the cooked chicken and onion. Serve the finished pitas with the slaw on the side. Garnish the slaw with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
