Preheat grill or griddle to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken breast from the marinade and grill for about 5-7 minutes per side, or until cooked through and juicy. Be sure to turn the slices during cooking to ensure even cooking.

While the chicken cooks, heat the pitas, wraps or naan bread on the grill for a few minutes until slightly crispy.

Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Then cut it into thin strips.

Fill pitas or naan bread with chicken strips, top with chopped fresh vegetables, and top with desired dips and toppings, such as tzatziki, yogurt dip, or hummus.

Fold the pita in half and enjoy your delicious kebab with chicken breast and vegetables.
