Grilled Chicken Pita with Avocado Goat Cheese Spread

1 large chicken breast or 2 thighs
Lemon Pepper seasoning
1 tsp minced fresh thyme
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Whole wheat pitas
1 large ripe avocado
2 oz goat cheese (herb flavored)
1 Tbsp sour cream
2 tsp lemon juice
Cucumber, peeled and sliced
Red bell pepper, sliced
Red onion, sliced

In a large zip lock bag, marinate chicken in lemon pepper, thyme and EVOO. Marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to a couple hours. The longer the better so the marinade has a chance to penetrate deep into the chicken meat.

Grill chicken over medium heat until no longer pink in the middle. Let rest before slicing so all the juices don’t escape. While chicken is cooking make spread.

In a food processor, or bowl with a hand held electric mixer, combine avocado, goat cheese, sour cream and lemon juice. Mix until smooth.

Spread avocado goat cheese mixture onto pita. Cover with sprouts. Layer cucumber slices on one side and bell pepper and onion on the other half. Add sliced chicken over one half. Close like a taco and enjoy.

Serve with a cool couscous salad.
