I love quick and simple meals that look beautiful and taste great. I also love meals that make use of foods that you can make ahead of time.

Take this Greek Chicken Pita Recipe, for example. You can grill a couple of extra chicken breasts one night and have lunch for the next couple of days. Or, just use leftover chopped chicken from a roasted chicken. It tastes the same, but make the meal that much quicker to prepare.

Tzatziki sauce is a wonderful light and refreshing sauce that goes well on salads and in wraps. It’s easy to make ahead of time, and it’ll keep for a few days in the refrigerator.

These Greek Chicken Pitas are wonderful for a weekday lunch or a quick supper. And they’re so tasty and beautiful – it’s a no brainer for your next meal.
