Grecian Kabobs In Pita Bread

I am so behind posting all the recipes I've been making so I hope to catch up soon so come back for more recipes during the week. I've been making this one for a long time. I usually add spinach or lettuce. Sometimes I just cook the marinated chicken in a skillet and it's still good.

¼ c. olive or canola oil
¼ c. lemon juice
½ t. dried oregano
½ t. salt
¼ t. garlic powder
1/8 t. pepper
2 lg. halves boneless, skinless chicken breasts,cut into 1-inch cubes
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 tomato, thinly sliced
2 c. chopped lettuce
½ c. plain yogurt or sour cream

Mix oil, lemon juice, salt, oregano, garlic powder & pepper in medium glass bowl. Add chicken to oil mixture; toss to coat completely. Cover & refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Thread chicken onto 4 small metal skewers. Reserve. Place kabobs on greased broiler pan. Broil about 5 inches from heat until chicken is golden, 8 to 10 minutes; brushing frequently with marinade. Turn kabobs over and brush with marinade. Broil until done, 5 to 7 minutes longer. Cut each pita bread in half; gently pull each half open to form a pocket. Remove chicken from 1 kabob & place inside each pocket; top with onion, tomato, lettuce & yogurt or sour cream. Garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.
