    from "The Great American Eat-Right Cookbook" by Colleen Doyle and Jeanne Besser

    Packaged "thin-sliced" chicken breasts are now available at most supermarkets. These cutlets cook in a jiffy and fit snugly in a pita pocket for lunch or a light dinner.

    Tzatziki is a yogurt and cucumber-based sauce. To add a little zing, chop up some pepperoncini and Kalamata olives and add to sauce.

    Prep time: 30 minutes or less

    In a shallow plate, combine oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 2 minced garlic cloves, and oregano. Add chicken, turning to coat, and marinate for 15 minutes.

    In a bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, hot sauce, dill, and the remaining garlic and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

    Preheat a lightly oiled grill to medium-high.

    Remove chicken from marinade and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill chicken for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

    Divide lettuce and tomato in pita halves. Add chicken and top with sauce.
