It's All Greek Chicken Salad to Me

Greek chicken salad being stuffed in a pita pocket.
ACTIVE TIME: 10 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 5 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Classic chicken salad gets an international flavor upgrade with Greek yogurt and kalamata olives.
This is my favorite use of leftover grilled chicken or my One Pot Chicken, though in a pinch, a store-bought rotisserie bird will do. And I should add, this dish is just as good with turkey. But I wasn't sure about mixing Greece and Turkey in the same title since they don't always get along.
