Greek Chicken Pitas w/ Cucumber Sauce

Came up with this marinade for my chicken and it was fabulous:
1 can lemon-lime soda
juice from 1 lemon
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 tsp. ground oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 TBS. table mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
6-8 chicken breasts, pounded thin
(we marinated boneless skinless chicken breasts...would also be lovely on lamb or pork)

Cucumber Sauce (Tzatziki Sauce)
4 oz. plain greek yogurt
1 English cucumber, shredded, liquid drained
1 c. sour cream
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 TBS. olive oil
Grill chicken on medium-high until no longer pink in center.  Serve in pitas with lettuce, grilled tomatoes, grilled zucchini, feta cheese and cucumber sauce.

Thanks for your comment!

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
