These Spicy Chicken Pitas are made with boneless, skinless chicken thighs and you can prep all the components ahead of time and assemble them quickly for a healthy lunch or dinner.
Cut each chicken thigh into quarters and place in a large ziploc bag.
In a small bowl, combine 2 tsp garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper and olive oil and mix until combined.
Add spice mixture to ziploc bag and mix until all pieces are coated.
Let marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Spread chicken on a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.
Once cooled, thinly slice all pieces.
Combine diced tomato, onion and cucumber and store until ready to assemble.
In a small bowl, combine yogurt, 2 Tbsp finely diced cucumber, garlic powder and lemon juice to make tzatziki sauce. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Store until ready to serve.
When ready to eat, stuff pita halves with lettuce, chicken, tomato mixture and tzatziki sauce (or other dressing of choice).
