When I pick up a restaurant menu - THIS is exactly what I'm looking for. Delicious, healthy, hearty, warm meals like these Greek Chicken Nachos. All of the nutritious and big bold flavors of a greek salad on top of warm, toasted pita wedges loaded with protein packed chicken and sprinkled with melted cheese.
And before you start messaging me - I know that for a lot of you, a sprinkling of feta over the top of these Greek Nachos would absolutely make these perfect. But there are some of us (cough cough) who just really don't enjoy eating feta. I actually considered putting sacrificing one of the Nachos and sprinkling it with feta because I think it would have made even better pictures but I just couldn't bring myself to it.
I am going to be making these Greek Chicken Nachos a LOT. It's a great way to use up leftover chicken and they're super quick to put together. Luckily, my family shared my love of this new recipe because they are going to see this recipe again and again.
Greek Chicken Nachos
3 whole pitas
2 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup cucumber, chopped
10 pitted kalamata olives, halved
2 cups shredded rotisseree chicken
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Coat each side with cooking spray and cut each half into 6 wedges.
Arrange on a foil lined baking sheet and bake 8 minutes at 400. These warm pita triangles are ridiculous. I could NOT stop eating them.
Stir in lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and olives.
Sprinkle chicken and mozzarella over pitas.
Bake 3 minutes at 400.
Top with lettuce mixture and oregano.
I can see all sorts of possibilities for this recipe. What about replacing the Greek salad with a Cesar salad? Or swapping the chicken breast with shredded pork? Or maybe even pizza pita nachos. Those are just a few of my nacho ideas. I'm sure that you've got so great ideas too and I want to hear them. Send me your nacho recipes. I can't wait to hear from you.
