> 2 (8 oz each) boneless skinless chicken breasts
> 7 tbsp fat-free Italian dressing, divided
> 3 mini cucumbers
> 1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
> 1/2 small red onion
> 2 plum tomatoes
> cooking spray
> 4 whole-wheat pita pockets
> 2 cups chopped romaine


Cut each chicken breast horizontally into 2 thin cutlets. In a large bowl, toss with ¼ cup (4 tbsp) Italian dressing until well coated. Refrigerate 15 min.
Meanwhile, use a box grater to coarsely grate the cucumbers into a medium bowl. Stir in the yogurt and remaining 3 tbsp Italian dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Thinly slice the red onion and tomatoes.
Coat a large grill pan with cooking spray. Heat on medium-high. Add chicken to pan and cook 4–5 min. per side, until cooked through.
Lightly toast the pitas. Spread the cucumber-yogurt sauce inside the pitas. Chop the chicken and add to pitas, along with tomatoes, romaine, and red onion.
