Indian Spiced Chicken Pitas
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) Tempeh
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) Garam Masala Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) Kosher Salt
  • 3/4 cup(s) Almond Dream Plain Yogurt (Non Dairy)
  • 1/2 ounce(s) Cilantro Fresh
  • 1 lemons large, fresh, juiced, about 2 tablespoons
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) Black Pepper to taste
  • 4 Whole Wheat Pita Bread 6-inch, warmed
  • 8 ounce(s) Romaine Lettuce shredded
  • 12 ounce(s) Cherry Tomatoes or 1 basket
  • 2 ounce(s) Red Onion or 1/4 cup, thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high or position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler. If grilling, oil the grill rack. If broiling, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with 1 teaspoon garam masala and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Place the chicken on the grill rack or prepared pan and cook until no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the size of the breast. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine cucumber, yogurt, cilantro (or mint), lemon juice, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garam masala and 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Thinly slice the chicken. Split open the warm pitas and fill with the chicken, yogurt sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion.
