Sheet Pan Chicken Pitas with Tzatziki

Favorite thing I’ve been eating lately: these sheet pan chicken pitas.

A plate of chicken, red bell peppers, cucumber, and tzatziki sauce with a lemon wedge.

Er, can we call them pitas? They are part bowl, part salad, part sandwich folded up into any kind of bread you like including but not limited to pitas, and I’m here for it in every form.

Here’s our lineup:

  • marinated, spiced, flash-roasted chicken
  • roasted bell peppers
  • diced fresh cucumber
  • kalamata olives
  • feta cheese
  • olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice
  • tzatziki (that yogurt dill sauce that crowns the plate)

Pile that on a plate and grab a fork – or grab a piece of warm, soft naan, or pita, or socca (YUM), and get to work. You’ve got the crunchy, and the cool-creamy, and the puckery-briney all happening in one big joyful bite.

How To Serve Sheet Pan Chicken Pitas

Here’s how I like to serve this: family style!

Everything goes on a roasting pan, and you effortlessly carry your gourmet-looking roasting pan to the table, and you let your people feast.

It’s comforting and filling. But it’s also happy and crunchy and fresh, which is exactly what we need right now in the deep winter. Happy, fresh, filling, annnd go.

  3. On a sheet pan, toss the peppers with olive oil and salt. On a second sheet pan, place the chicken pieces. Roast both for 10-15 minutes, until chicken is cooked and peppers are browned.
  4. Serve chicken, peppers, sauce, and all the other fixings on a big platter (or just a sheet pan, really) and everyone can build their own pitas / bowls / salads. So much salty-briney-crunchy goodness.
