A Mediterranean inspired dish with Grilled Chicken and vegetables, served on a warm toasted flatbread along side a Paleo Avocado Tzatziki Sauce.

Ok, I have to start out by saying. If you live where there is still snow I’m sorry, please don’t hate me. Right now it is in the 70’s so hey … this girl has to grill.

This dish was inspired by some sweet friends of ours, Jonathan & Desiree. {yeah I know.. I love her name too!} I first met them when I was working at our church in the Community Life Ministry. Jonathan and Desiree were small group leaders and seriously the most awesome people you will ever meet. After I resigned we still kept in contact with them and they invited us over one day.

Desiree created this amazing meal with a Greek/Mediterranean theme, baked feta cheese for an appetizer, greek seasoned chicken & steak kabobs, fresh made hummus, with warm flatbread. The other day I was thinking about that amazing meal and created this Mediterranean Chicken Flatbread with Avocado Tzatziki Sauce. Yup, you read that right. AVOCADO tzatziki sauce, and believe me this sauce is da bomb.com.

The flavors of this will totally take you to the Mediterranean in a heartbeat. The smokey grill taste from the Chicken & Vegetable Skewers works perfectly with the toasted warm flatbread and that sauce… oh that sauce… will just make you want more and more! If you are on a gluten-free or paleo diet all you need to do to make this dish work for you is omit the flatbread and your good to go. You won’t even miss it, just make double sauce to make up for the missing bread. {can you tell I really like this sauce yet!! haha} Go make it…. NOW! It will change your life… no… YOUR WORLD!

 

To get started, soak 12 wooden skewers in cold water for 20 minutes. {this prevents the wood from burning once on grill.) Add 1 lb. of cubed boneless chicken breast to a bowl.

To the chicken bowl add juice from 1 lemon, 1 teaspoon of dry oregano, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Toss to coat chicken.

Prep all your veggies, cut 2 red peppers into 1″ cubes, 1 yellow pepper in 1″ cubes, 1 large zucchini into 1/2″ slices, and 1 red onion in 1″ cubes. Set aside. On wooden skewers alternate chicken with vegetables. Preheat grill to medium high heat.

  1. So jealous that you can GRILL already! LOVE this flat bread—your chicken and veggies look grilled to perfection and that avocado sauce! I think I could eat it with a spoon. Totally making this just as soon as the snow is off my grill. 😉

  2. This looks incredible! I’m always wishing we had a grill to make things like this. I think it’s high time I at least construct a temporary hillbilly grill with cement blocks because boy do I need to try this!

  3. This looks so good! I can’t wait until we can use the grill. Unfortunately we just got a bunch of snow yesterday so right now, the grill is covered in snow!

  4. Avocado tzatziki sauce? I can’t wait to try!! What a brilliant idea. And this grilled chicken pita looks amazing. I just adore Mediterranean food. I miss Fadi’s..

  5. Whoa! You musta been catching vibes from me today, if that sorta thing even happens. Haha. Cause I was thinking earlier, when I finally stop eating dairy (or at least the lactose loaded dairy) I won’t be able to enjoy one of my favs – Tzatziki sauce. OMG. But now I can. I love this, Krista! Pinned (and I pinned the avocado tzatziki too!)

    1. Ohhh… dairy free. Major bummer but you are so creative so I know you can make it work. I am a huge tzatziki fan and to be honest I almost like this version more. 🙂 Hope you agree sweet friend. Have an awesome rest of the week!

    1. 🙂 So glad we’re still friends Deb. Wearing a coat to grill is totally worth it to get that tasty meal at the end. Thanks for stopping by Deb, hope you have a great weekend!

    It’s already super warm here in Phoenix – so grilling recipes are perfect! 🙂 This sounds uber delish! Pinned!

    1. I bet! I remember living in the tundra… aka wisconsin and those winter months are a killer especially without access to the grill. Try those sauce Chris, you will love it. Totally up your alley! 🙂

  7. THIS is what I need and want for dinner right now! Love the grill action and especially the sauce! I love her name, too. I actually have 3(!) friends with the name… how’d I end up with the out of style name?! Love this dish, absolutely gorgeous!

  8. How on earth did I missed that uh-mazing Paleo Avocado Tzatziki sauce?
    Good that you repost it in this recipe because it’s kind of life-changing for me.
    OK, I’m going to make some right now for my lunch today. YAY!
