Zaatar Chicken Sandwiches

This is a nice and simple sandwich that can be dressed a bunch of ways and has a good mix of protein, fats and carbs. I served these as a stand-alone for dinner and was satisfied.

This picture is tragic, but I was starving

Zaatar Chicken Sandwiches

150g chicken breast per person, sliced into thin strips

2 Tbsp. zaatar

Salt & pepper

Drizzle chicken with a touch of oil (a teaspoon worth max), toss with spices and air fry 7 minutes, shaking a couple times during cooking.

Whisk together:

1/4 c. yogurt

2 Tbsp. fresh dill, minced

2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, minced

2 Tbsp. lemon juice (more if necessary to add more zing – I started with this amount and kept adding to mask the taste of coconut yogurt)

1 Tbsp. garlic powder (more if necessary)

Salt & pepper

Toppers:

Sliced avocado

Sliced cherry tomatoes

Sautéed mushrooms & bell peppers

Sliced olives

Cucumber strips

Stuff a pita with chicken, top with veggies of your choice & yogurt sauce.

My pita ended up not being able to hold all the chicken I needed to hit my 150g protein macro, so I had a little extra in the side – along with the avocado, which kept leaping out of my sandwich. Delicious.
