Recipe Ingredients for Sandwich - Indian spiced chicken pita

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala , divided
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 cup thinly sliced cucumber (seeded)
3/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro , or mint
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 Freshly ground pepper , to taste
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
2 small tomatoes, sliced
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion

Recipe Directions for Sandwich - Indian spiced chicken pita

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high or position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler. If grilling, oil the grill rack (see Tip). If broiling, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.

  2. Sprinkle chicken with 1 teaspoon garam masala and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Place the chicken on the grill rack or prepared pan and cook until no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165F, 4 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the size of the breast. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine cucumber, yogurt, cilantro (or mint), lemon juice, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garam masala and 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Thinly slice the chicken. Split open the warm pitas and fill with the chicken, yogurt sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion.
