Great recipe! This was so easy and a great way to use up leftover grilled chicken. I cut the recipe in half and used Hellman's light mayo. I loved the lemon and garlic combination! I might use the filling and dressing in a spinach wrap next time.

Excellent and simple recipe! I love meals like this because they make me feel like I am on vacation or eating out! I added about a teaspoon of fresh mint to the sauce for our Mediterranean tastes. If I were to make this again, I would substitute yogurt for the mayonnaise (and probably whip up an osmosis contraption to drain the moisture from the cucumber because I'm a nerd like that and SCIENCE IS FUN AND TASTY!).

I was looking for a quick and easy recipe to use up some rotisserie chicken we had left over and I'm glad I gave this a try. The sauce was sooo full of flavor, the garlic gave it the right amount of kick! I shredded my cloves over a small grater/zester, so much easier to handle that way. Next time I don't want to heat up the kitchen on a hot day, I'm making these delicious sandwiches! Don't be afraid to fill that pita up with spinach, YUM!

i made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious and filling. I did not have a lemon so i just used bottled lemon juice and i only had roma tomatos it still came out delicious. I will make this again.

This was pretty good for being so easy to make. I bought a rotisserie chicken to use and added extra garlic & pepper to the sauce. Think I over did it a little though, this sauce should be light and refreshing & mine came out quite spicy. I still loved it though.

I really liked this. I did follow the suggestion of tossing the chicken WITH the dressing before serving rather than just topping the meat with it. I had no lemon for the juice or zest so, I subsitituted margarita mix and this still tasted so good. Mike really liked it too. Had the fresh spinach and a chopped tomato. We had it in the pita bread but, putting in a tortilla would be good as a wrap too, probably. Will make again.

Very good and easy, but did not wow me. Don't get me wrong, it was quite tasty but I had higher hopes being as the recipe came from Bobby Flay. I will probbly make this again, but next time I will toss the chicken and veggies together with the sauce before filling the pita for more even coverage. I think this concept would work well with any meat or poultry, mixed greens and creamy dressing. Endless possibilities.
