Weight Watchers Monday ~ Greek Pita

 Are you a Greek food fanatic like I am?
Whenever I see or hear Greek I get all giddy....
I love this recipe. 
It is so simple and satisfying.
Let me walk you through the steps to putting this fabulous pita together.
 I cooked my chicken and de-boned it. 
I cooked a large family size package of chicken legs.
Only 3 c. of chicken was used in this recipe, so I had enough leftover for soup.
That recipe will come later.
Anyway, I made the sauce for the pita topping.
2 c. Greek yogurt, plain
Juice of 1/2 of a lemon
3 small garlic cloves, minced
1 TBS chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix.
 Next, take 1/2 c. of the sauce and stir it into the picked chicken.
Stir until all the chicken is coated.
 Chop 1 cucumber
and tomatoes of your choice.
I used the tri-color grape tomatoes.
Just because I think they're cute......
Place about 1/2-3/4 c. of chicken in your pita.
Sprinkle with tomatoes and cucumber.
There you have it.
Stuff your pita and enjoy. 
Top the pita with a little more sauce and it is out of this world fantastic.
1/2 of a pita is 5 WW points.
This is awesome next to a bowl of low calorie soup.
