Quick Souvlaki Sandwiches

Since I’m a little behind on the recipe posting, we’re doing two in a row this week! (with two more to follow for recipes we’re making this week…)

Another 5 Ingredient meal from everyday with Rachel Ray, plus a few ingredients that we added.  Matt made these last week when I was running late getting home (and the pic below is the text message I received letting me I know I better hurry up before I missed out).  Another quick, delicious, and inexpensive meal, in other words, a keeper!

Quick Souvlaki Sandwiches

Serves: 4


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts, pounded 1/2-inch thick

  • 1 red onion, halved and sliced
  • 4 pita breads, warmed
  • 8 ounces store-bought tzatziki
  • Optional: Cucumbers, lettuce and peppers for additional veggies, Middle Eastern seasoning mix for seasoning


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper and/or Middle Eastern seasoning, heat oil over medium-high.
