4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (about 6 to 8 ounces each)
1 large onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1/4 cup tahini
1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt

3. Slather the mixture all over the chicken until it is well-coated.

5. Remove from the grill and let the chicken rest before thinly slicing.

6. Once the chicken is working, preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of olive oil, about 2 tablespoons. Once you see the oil ripple, add the onions and peppers, and season with some salt and pepper.

7. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes until the veggies start to wilt. Once the onions are working make the sauce: In a bowl, combine the juice of the remaining half lemon, the tahini, yogurt, some salt and a small drizzle of olive oil. Mix to combine.

8. Place the pitas on the grill to warm them and give them a light char, about 1 minute on each side. To assemble, place some of the sliced chicken on each pita, top with some of the pepper and onion mixture, and a good dollop of the yogurt-tahini sauce.
