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
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.
