Instructions

Chicken

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large ziplock bag, and massage the bag to coat the chicken. Marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours (I prefer overnight).

Pita

  1. Spread the hummus evenly across the top of each pita.
  2. Sprinkle the diced cucumber evenly across the top of the hummus.
