Chicken Shawarma & Chopped Veg. Salad

This is a Middle Eastern flavored dish... my kids love this too. Make sure you make the sauce.

2 Tbl fresh lemon juice
1 tsp curry powder
2 tsp olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
3 cloves garlic minced
1 - 1.5 pounds bonless skiness chicken breasts cut into 3" strips (I buy tenderlion cuts from Wegmans)

1/2 cup plain 2% GREEK yogurt (I use Fage, the Greek yogurt is much thicker)
2 Tbl tahini
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1 garlic cloved minced

4 pitas (I use gyro bread, you want it to be softer then a regular pita. Nan even works)

Preheat Grill ti medium high heat
1. Combine 1st six ingredients in bowl. Add chicken, toss to coat. Let stand at room temp for 20 minutes.
2. Combine all sauce ingredients, stir with whisk
3. Grill until cooked
4. Serve on pita with sauce

Combine 2 cups chopped cucumber, 1 cup chopped red pepper, 1 cup chopped tomato, 1/2 cup chopped green pepper, 1/2 cup chopped red onion, 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley, 2 Tbl red wine vinegar, 1 Tbl olive oil, salt & pepper to taste.
