Thai Spiced Chicken Pitas

Assemble ingredients for chicken patties:

1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 lb ground chicken
1 TBS fresh ground ginger root
1 tsp minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp Thai seasoning (I used Spice Islands Thai Seasoning blend)
1/2 tsp salt

* Combine in a medium bowl, shape into patties and grill fully cooked. (Internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F)

Next, prepare the sauce and vegetables to fill the Pita with the grilled chicken patties:

For sauce -

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt

* Combine sauce ingredients well in a small dish

Veggies -

1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced
2 large carrots, peeled and sliced into small thin sticks
1/2 small red onion, sliced

Fill 1/2 split Pita round (we used Whole Wheat) with a chicken patty, sauce, and vegetables.
This is a quick and delicious twist on the pitas we normally eat. The Thai seasoning really adds an interesting flavor!
