I’m not sure if you guys remember me saying this. But I actually avoid sharing sandwich recipes – for the sole reason that I hate photographing them.

I think more than anything, it’s a fear I’ve put into my head. I convinced myself that I can’t take a delicious-looking photo of a sandwich. But recently I’ve been pushing past my fears and embracing fun sandwiches like these pitas.

Why? Well, for two reasons. First and foremost, I get bored really, really quickly. And when it comes to recipes, if things are feeling boring, I have to switch them up. So, these sandwiches are a switch-up. Especially seeing as I have only a small handful of sandwiches in our recipe archives.

Second, I realized that my mind is what’s been holding me back from all the delicious sandwiches out there. And let’s be real, there are some truly DELICIOUS sandwiches to be made. So here we are…stuffed pitas, a new favorite!

The idea…

These sandwiches started out totally different. As I was making them I just kept changing things here and there based on what was sounding best in my mind. Clearly, my brain works in odd ways.

So at first, these started out a little more…Plain Jane I would say. But then things like avocado and bacon were added. I ended up finishing with this fun, quick, and easy pita combo.

And it’s just about perfect. Simple ingredients, GOOD flavors, and just the right amount of textures with double the amounts of sauce.

And while I did actually struggle with the photos a bit, I figured them out and ended up loving every last detail of these quick chicken pitas.

Here’s the quick and simple process…

Start with the chicken. It’s tossed up with a mix of fresh rosemary, paprika, chili powder, and lemon. Not a lot of ingredients, but when using a potent herb like rosemary, I don’t like to use competing flavors. So although it may seem simple, trust me, the flavor is all there.

I like to roast the chicken, but you could easily grill and shred it too – especially if the weather is nice. That would be delicious!

While the chicken is cooking, I like to make the creamy feta sauce. And you guys…this sauce is the secret extra special touch to these pitas. It’s just feta cheese whipped together with lemon and honey until it gets nice and creamy. I LOVE the salty feta with the sweet honey, it has to be one of my favorite flavor combinations.

I spoon the feta sauce into a bowl, then top with a lite drizzle of olive oil (or you could do more honey too). Then add fresh tender herbs like dill and basil, and chili flakes to offset that sweetness.

SO DELICIOUS. Sorry for the caps, but I’m kind of into showing my excitement for these today!

Finish them up…

So the rest is really just stuffing each pita with all the ingredients. I start with the feta, then add shredded romaine, avocado, bacon, and tomato. Add the chicken, then more lettuce, avocado, and bacon. Finish with even more of that feta sauce and lots of fresh herbs. I’m obsessed with herbs as we are entering into herb season. They always add such a delicious and fresh finish to recipes!

Part of the reason I made these is because my brother Creighton is currently here in Colorado. Stuffed pitas are his favorite, so I knew he’d be excited over these. And trust me, he was! So much so that I think I’m going to do some lamb stuffed pitas today. Creighton keeps telling me that I really need to start cooking with lamb.

But for now, we’ve got these delicious chicken pitas. Herby rosemary chicken, salty-sweet feta, and crispy bacon…one of the best combinations of flavor. Beyond good and great for the warmer months ahead, since this is basically just a yummy chicken salad stuffed pita!!

    This was so good and simple, doubled the recipe to have extra for the week.

    Had a difficult time with the getting the sauce thinner. Had to add an extra lemon juice, olive oil and some water and a little extra honey.

    Remembered this after making it last year and am so excited to make it tonight! I think last time I was able to view a video though. Do you have your videos linked somewhere?

    1. Hi Liz,

    This is one recipe I go back to every few months – it’s delicious every time. The feta sauce is always more of a spread but that doesn’t bother me 🙂

    1. Hi Andrea,
      Happy Wednesday!! I so appreciate you giving this recipe a try and love to hear that it was enjoyed! Thanks for your feedback:) xT

    Omgoodness! Just made this recipe and it’s RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS! I’m also glad to see that I wasn’t the only one that struggled with the sauce. I used a small manual food processor so that probably didn’t help either but I did add more oil and a tbsp of water but it still wasn’t as creamy as I wanted. Still AMAZING flavor tho!

    1. Hey Kris,
      Awesome!! Thanks a lot for giving this recipe a try and sharing your review! Love to hear that it was enjoyed! Have a great weekend!☀️ xx

    This was delicious. I followed the recipe as is except didn’t include the bacon. I some how messed up the Honey Feta Sauce. I am not sure what I did wrong. It was more of a feta whip, which was still delicious, but need to go back and watch the video. It was an easy recipe and served it with Greek potatoes.

    1. Hey Jen,
      Happy Sunday!! Thanks for giving the recipe a try and your comment, love to hear that it was enjoyed!! Maybe you just needed to thin it out with some olive oil? xTieghan

      1. Thank you, Tieghan, for your reply. I greatly appreciate your help. I will try that next time because I will definitely make this again.

        1. This looks amazing! Trying it tonight. But what happened to the 2 T of lemon juice with the lemon wedges? Should it be included in the spice mixture? Thank you!

          1. Hi Carrie,
            You can toss the chicken with the lemon juice:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

    1. HI Shelby,

    Omgosh! The spice combo is something I’d never think to put together and it’s the bombdiggity!! Thanks for this. Will be a “go to” for sure.

    1. Hey Heather,
      Happy Sunday!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for trying it out! xTieghan

  7. This recipe was so delicious! It was the perfect summer dinner – fresh and light. Thank you for such a fantastic recipe!
    I had difficulty getting my feta where it was a “drizzling” consistency. I used block feta, which just crumbled. I ended up adding a little bit of olive oil and a little cream cheese to try and make it smoother, and finally had to heat it up to get it to blend together. But it ended up more of a spread. Any tips to get a smoother consistency?

    1. Hey Jessica,
      Happy Friday!! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for making it!! Did you use a food processor to blend? I would say add more olive oil or some water:) ☀️xxT

    If I could give this 10 stars I would! I have made this several times for just my wife and daughters and for a dinner party. Everyone loves it. My daughters love the spice blend and the feta sauce. The fresh herbs make this dish so much better!!

    1. Hey Alex,
      Thanks so much for your kind comment! I am so glad your family has been enjoying this recipe, thanks for making it! xTieghan
