I LOVE finding new recipes that will become one of my family’s new favorites. This one is going to be added to my ‘favorite’ list. If you love Mediterranean flavors and lemon, this recipe will be one you will want to try. I found a recipe that looked good and have tweaked it a little.

Instructions
  1. For added flavor in your pita (if you are a saucy person like me), you can add Ken's Lite Ceasar dressing. The flavors go perfectly together.
  2. Place chicken breasts, olive oil, rosemary, chicken base, lemon juice, thyme, oregano, vinegar, salt & pepper, and water in a crock pot. Cook on medium high heat for 4-6 hours, or until tender. When cooked, shred chicken into large chunks. For cucumber sauce add the above ingredients and chill. In the pita pocket put the chicken, cucumber sauce, tomatoes, feta, and lettuce. Serve with an extra squirt of lemon. Yum!
