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!!

    OMG! I live all your recipes and this is just another keeper! My hubby ate 2 halves of a pita. The flavors are delicious! Hubby isn’t a big Mediterranean fan so I only used 2 oz of feta and added about a 1/3 cup sour cream. I used my magic bullet to mix the sauce. We ate it all!!!

    1. Hey Robbie,
      Love to hear this!! Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback! ☀️xTieghan

    Very yummy! My husband and I both really enjoyed this and it was super easy to make. Love the flavors of the chicken and the feta sauce was so good.

    The only things I did differently were use regular paprika instead of smoked because that’s what I had on hand and I skipped the 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.

    Like others, my feta sauce was very thick, more like a crumble, and I had to add olive oil to thin it out. Are you supposed to put the herbs in the food processor or just mix in after? Don’t think it makes a difference flavor wise but my sauce was green because I blended everything up together so I was just curious.

    1. Hey Christina,
      Awesome!! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thank you so much for giving it a try!! I mix the herbs in after, did you use block feta? Have the best day:) xx

  5. Absolutely amazing!! I can’t have dairy so I used goat cheese instead of feta cheese but definitely going to add to my routine of recipes.. absolutely to die for!!! Even the husband loved it

    1. Hi Emma,
      Happy Wednesday!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for giving it a go! xx

  6. Reading reviews and noticed others commented the sauce was too thick… last week I made your chicken gyros (recent recipe) and the feta sauce was made with 1/3 cup Greek yogurt, and it was perfect! Thinking that would make it the sauce consistency everyone is looking for! Looking forward to making these today.🙂

    Just came home after a long trip and was craving this recipe it’s the second time I’ve made it. What I love is that the chicken was easy enough for my 11 year old to throw together and bake while I made the sauce. The sauce is everything and I loved adding extra spice and playing around with the herbs. It’s SO good! Also feels light, one of my favorites for sure. Thank you for using so many fresh herbs in your recipes.

    Easy and delicious. Not sure what I did wrong but my feta was VERY thick. I added a bit of oil to make it runnier. Regardless, delicious!! Loved this recipe.

  9. Loved this recipe, feta sauce was tangy and Found that if you put a little extra olive oil it became more smooth. I also found the chicken to be a little dry, not sure if I over cooked it when I broiled it.

    This was amazing! However my feta sauce needed much more than the recipe stated to be a sauce and then made enough sauce for like 10x the recipe. Next time I’ll use much less feta but omg it was so good!

    1. Hi Nicole,
      I really appreciate you giving the recipe a try, so glad to hear that it was enjoyed! Have a great week! xxT

    The chicken itself was great. Feta sauce was a challenge… I couldn’t get it smooth like a sauce. I tired adding olive oil but it was still pasty and ended up tasting way too tangy. Would love to know how you got yours so creamy? I ended up just tossing everything into a bowl and served as a salad with the pita bread on the side with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar drizzled over. Will make again if I can figure out the feta sauce. Thank you!!! Love your recipes!!

    1. Hey Mary,
      Awesome! Love to hear that you liked the recipe, thanks a bunch for trying it out! Sorry to hear about the feta sauce. Did you use block or crumbled feta, for this recipe it is important to use block feta. Happy Holidays! xx

    This was incredible!!! We could eat this rosemary chicken every day. To get the sauce a creamier consistency I just added a splash of olive oil to the processor. Cannot wait to make this again, thank you!!
