Make a perfect summer supper: grill spice-rubbed chicken breasts and tuck them into whole-wheat pitas along with fresh vegetables and a tangy yogurt sauce. Serve with: Grilled vegetables and a pilsner.

"It was a great idea but with the ingredients suggested it didn't blend well. Next time i'll be leaving out the cilantro and instead adding garlic. I would also consider marinading the chicken; it was a bit bland. "

Loved this dish! I used tikka masala instead though. I was kinda scared that the yogurt mixture wouldn't go well with this masala but all was good!

Very easy to make

Good idea, garam masala seemed to be a poor fit for seasoning. After assembling I realized all it truly is is a oddly seasoned chicken gyro. Next time will substitute garam masala for something different. Would also suggest smaller cucumber pieces.


This recipe is super simple and my boyfriend and I both really enjoyed it. Store-bought Garam Masalas can be somewhat bland, but I cook with Indian flavors a lot, so I make my own to keep on hand. Use Greek Yogurt and your sauce won't be runny. Sauce recipe makes A LOT, so next time I'll cut that in half.

Good, but could be great with a couple of changes

The garam masala adds really great flavour to this dish! The problem was with the sauce. It was watery and, like others have said, it made the sandwich pretty soggy. Next time, I'd made the sauce more like a traditional tzatziki (grate the cucumber, put it in cheesecloth and squeeze all of the liquid out before adding it to the yogurt). Marinating the chicken for a couple of hours and preparing the sauce ahead of time to allow all of the flavours to blend together would be a big help too.

I have not tried this recipe but for a diabetic I find that 44 g of carbohydrates not a healthy choice for one meal.
