  • Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
  • Place two skewers beside each other. Roll up each marinated chicken thigh and slide it onto both skewers.
  • Grill both sides of the skewered chicken thighs on high heat until fully cooked through (about 10 minutes per side).
  • Using a sharp knife, slice off a desired amount of chicken and place it into each pita. Top with your favorite toppings. I like to use Romain lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, and of course Greek yogurt sauce.
