Step 2 Meanwhile, prep the Mediterranean salsa for the tacos by combining cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, red onion, parsley, feta cheese, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil if desired.

Step 3 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once nice and hot, add the chicken pieces in a single layer. Cook for 3-5 minutes until golden brown, releasing naturally from the pan. Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

Step 4 Warm the pitas so they are soft and don’t break. This can be down on a griddle with a touch of cooking spray. Top each pita with chicken, Mediterranean salsa, and a dollop of tzatziki.
