1-1/2  cups plain low-fat yogurt
4  tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
2-1/2  tablespoons minced garlic
1/4  teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
1-1/2  pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, cut diagonally crosswise into 1-1/2-inch-thick pieces
1/2  cup finely chopped cucumber
6  small (4-inch) pitas, halved horizontally
2-3  tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus additional for grill
1  large green bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch-thick rings and seeded
3/4  pound beefsteak tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1  piece (1/2 lb.) feta, preferably Greek, cut into 1/3-inch-thick slices 
1/4  cup pitted olives, preferably kalamata
1  small head of romaine lettuce, leaves separated
 
Directions
1. Stir together 1/2 cup yogurt, 2 tablespoons juice, 1 tablespoon garlic, and oregano in a resealable plastic bag.
Add chicken, reseal bag, toss to coat evenly with marinade and chill, loosely covered, for at least 15 minutes and up to 1 day.
