Greek-Style Veggie Pitas with Lemon-Dressed Broccoli
Title
  • 2 Pocketless Pitas
  • ¾ lb Carrots
  • 1½ oz Feta Cheese
  • 1 Red Onion
  • ½ cup Tzatziki (Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce)
  • ½ lb Broccoli
  • 1 oz Pitted Niçoise Olives
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Tbsp Weeknight Hero Spice Blend (Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Smoked Paprika & Whole Dried Parsley)
  • 1 tsp Whole Dried Oregano
  • 10 oz Chopped Chicken Breast
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Halve and peel the onion; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide wedges, separating the layers. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets.

Roast the vegetables
2 Roast the vegetables

Line two sheet pans with foil. Place the carrot pieces and onion pieces on one sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Place the broccoli florets on the remaining sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Marinate the feta

Meanwhile, roughly chop the olives. Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a large bowl, combine the cheese (crumbling before adding), chopped olives, oregano, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes.

Warm the pitas
4 Warm the pitas

Meanwhile, place the pitas on a large piece of foil; tightly wrap to seal. Carefully place directly onto an oven rack and warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through and pliable. Transfer to a work surface and carefully unwrap.

5 Cook the chicken

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