Ingredients

  • 4 cup chopped cooked chicken or turkey

  • 3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (4 cups)

  • 1 10.75 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 1 medium red onion, chopped (1/2 cup)

  • ½ cup chicken broth

  • 1 ½ teaspoon Greek seasoning*

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 6 inch pita bread rounds, cut into bite-size wedges

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 3 medium roma tomatoes, chopped (1 cup)

  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese (4 ounces)

  • cup pitted Kalamata olives, sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl combine chicken, zucchini, soup, onion, broth, 1 teaspoon of the Greek seasoning, and the garlic. Transfer mixture to an ungreased 3-quart rectangular baking dish.

  2. Coat pita wedges with cooking spray; sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon Greek seasoning. Sprinkle pita wedges, tomatoes, cheese, and olives on top of chicken mixture. Bake, uncovered, about 20 minutes or until heated through.

*Tip:

If you can't find Greek seasoning, make your own by combining 2 teaspoons oregano, 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 teaspoon dried parsley, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.
