|1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed||2 teaspoons lemon juice|
|1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala, (see Tip), divided||Freshly ground pepper, to taste|
|3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided||4 6-inch whole-wheat pitas, warmed|
|1 cup thinly sliced seeded cucumber||1 cup shredded romaine lettuce|
|3/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt||2 small or 1 large tomato, sliced|
|1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, or mint||1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion|
Preheat grill to medium-high or position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler. If grilling, oil the grill rack (see Tip). If broiling, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.
Sprinkle chicken with 1 teaspoon garam masala and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Place the chicken on the grill rack or prepared pan and cook until no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165F, 4 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the size of the breast. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine cucumber, yogurt, cilantro (or mint), lemon juice, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garam masala and 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Thinly slice the chicken. Split open the warm pitas and fill with the chicken, yogurt sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion.
Tips: Garam masala is a blend of spices used in Indian cooking. It is available in the spice section of most supermarkets.
To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
