Ingredients

• 1/4 cup olive oil • 1/4 cup lemon juice • 3 cloves garlic, minced • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided • freshly cracked pepper, to taste • 6 chicken thighs, boneless and skinless • 1/2 cup plain Greek-style yogurt • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill • 1 tablespoon lemon juice • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced • 6 pieces flatbread, pita, or tortillas • 1 (10 ounce) container hummus • 1 pint grape tomatoes, sliced into halves • 1 cucumber, diced

Directions

Step 1

In a gallon-sized zip-top bag or shallow dish, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and freshly cracked pepper.

Step 2

Add the chicken thighs to the marinade, closing the top of the bag. Massage the ingredients to combine.

Step 3

Let the chicken marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge.

Step 4

While the chicken is marinating, in a small bowl combine the Greek yogurt, dried dill, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Set the sauce aside.

Step 5

Place the red onion in a bowl of ice water and let it soak for about 5-10 minutes. This helps to take the sharp edge off the flavor.

Step 6

After the chicken has marinated, heat a skillet over medium heat.

Step 7

Add the chicken thighs to the skillet until well browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes on each side. Cook the chicken in two batches to prevent overcrowding the skillet, which will prevent browning.

Step 8

Transfer the cooked chicken to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Step 9

Smear each flatbread, pita, or tortilla with 2 tablespoons of hummus.

Step 10

Pile sliced cooked chicken on the hummus-smeared bread.

Step 11

Top with tomatoes, cucumbers, and onion to taste.

Step 12

Add a few dollops of the dill yogurt sauce, wrap the bread around the filling, and serve!
