2. In a small bowl combine the Chicken, the zest of 1/2 the Lemon, juice of 1/2 the Lemon, Oregano, Thyme, Salt, Pepper, and about 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil. Mix well so seasoning is even on each chunk.

5. Assembly: Cut Pitas in half, fill inside with the Tzatziki and some Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, chicken & red onion chunks, and top with the cucumber, tomato, and feta mixture.
