Greek Chicken Nachos

A few years ago, a new restaurant opened in my small town in Oklahoma. A Greek restaurant, to be more precise. I’m embarrassed to say, up until visiting this restaurant, I had never tried Greek food. Not even shopping mall gyros! I’m not sure why, but maybe because I was the pickiest kid in the universe and didn’t get brave enough to start trying new foods until adulthood. Now I eat pretty much everything. Anyway, I fell in love with Greek food immediately; unfortunately, the restaurant didn’t last long but my love for the cuisine persists. Since I don’t have a Greek restaurant nearby anymore, I make it myself at home! Mine would probably qualify as Americanized Greek food but either way, it’s delicious! ~Erin

Greek Chicken Nachos
    Ingredients:
  • ~ 6 whole wheat pitas (I use Joseph’s Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Flour Pita bread.)
  • ~ 4 medium chicken breasts
  • ~ Greek seasoning, to taste (I prefer Cavender’s brand.)
  • ~ olive oil spray
  • ~ 1 c. low-moisture, part-skim mozzarella
  • ~ 2 oz. (about 1/3 c.) crumbled feta
  • ~ 1 T. finely chopped olives (I used black olives but Kalamata would be great too.)
  • ~ ½ a medium red onion, finely diced
  • ~ 1 medium red bell pepper, finely diced
  • ~ fresh chopped parsley, optional
    For Pita Chips:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Spray both sides of the pitas lightly with olive oil spray.
  3. Cut into wedges like you would cut a pizza.
  4. Bake in a single layer on a cookie sheet for 15 to 20 minutes, flipping halfway through cook time, or until brown.
  5. OR if you have an air fryer, you can cook them on 370°F for 4 minutes.
  6. Set aside.
    To Make Nachos:
  1. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season both sides of the chicken breast lightly with Greek seasoning and cook about 4 minutes on each side, or until chicken is cooked throughout.
  3. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes and then slice against the grain; set aside.
  4. In a large oven safe skillet or pan, layer pita chips, onion, bell pepper, mozzarella, feta, olives, & sliced chicken.
  5. Return the pan to the oven and bake about 5-8 minutes, or until cheeses are melted.
  6. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
