Instructions for zorba chicken

  1. In a large bowl, coat the chicken pieces with turmeric, cumin, coriander, and lime juice. Let the marinated chicken sit for at least 30 minutes, or preferably overnight in the fridge.
  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until browned and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes per side. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
  1. In a small bowl, mix the hummus and yogurt until smooth. This will be your hummus mixture.
  1. In another bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to create the salad dressing. Toss the mixed greens, tomatoes, and bell peppers with the dressing.
  1. To assemble the pitas, warm them slightly in a toaster or on the stove to make them pliable. Cut each pita in half. Spread the hummus mixture inside each half.
  1. Fill each pita half with the grilled chicken pieces and the tangy salad.
