Recipe byphoenyx7

• 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
• 1 teaspoon curry powder
• 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
• 3 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 16 (3-inch) strips

• 1/2 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
• 2 tablespoons tahini
• 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 garlic clove, minced

Remaining ingredients:
• Cooking spray
• 4 (6-inch) pitas
• 1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
• 8 (1/4-inch-thick) tomato slices
• 8 (12-inch) skewers

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

  2. To prepare chicken, combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add chicken to bowl, and toss well to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.

  3. To prepare sauce, combine yogurt and next 4 ingredients (through 1 garlic clove), stirring with a whisk.

  4. Thread 2 chicken strips onto each of 8 (12-inch) skewers. Place kebabs on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until done.

  5. Place pitas on grill rack; grill 1 minute on each side or until lightly toasted.

  6. Place 1 pita on each of 4 plates, and top each pita with 1/4 cup lettuce, 2 tomato slices, and 4 chicken pieces. Then drizzle each pita with 2 tablespoons of sauce.
