greek chicken pitas with quinoa tabbouleh

The other week we tried Lemon Chicken with Tabbouleh, once finished I kept reminicing about the flavours and had a few ideas on how to boost this already delicious dinner into something possibly better. So here's my rework which created Greek Chicken Pitas with Quinoa Tabbouleh.
2 chicken breasts cut into 2 inch chunks & skewered
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 tomato, diced
1/2 english cucumber, diced
large handful of parsley, chopped
small handful of mint, chopped
3 soft pitas
Quinoa Tabbouleh:
Cook 1 cup of quinoa according to package directions. Let it set aside to cool. Meanwhile, mix 1 tbsp of olive oil with 1 tbsp of lemon juice, salt and pepper for tabbouleh dressing. Add cucumber, tomatoes, parsley and mint to cooled quinoa and mix with dressing.
Greek Chicken Kebab:
Mix remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil with 1 tbsp of lemon juice, garlic clove, salt and pepper together till blended. Barbeque skewered chicken basting with marinade. Serve inside your favourite soft pita topped with tzatziki.

We liked this so much I had to share it on this blog. I know it's really simple, but it's really good and very easy. Owen loved his portion as well. Here's his Meze Platter which also included hummus.
