Rated 4.9268/5 based on 41 customer reviews

Ingredients (7)

  • 1 pound (2–3 total) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 medium English cucumber, peeled and cut into half moons (about 2 cups total)
  • 4 butter lettuce leaves
  • 4 whole wheat pita halves

Steps (5)

  • Step 1
    Preheat a grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Grease the grates to prevent sticking.
  • Step 2
    Season the chicken breasts with the salt and pepper evenly. Let sit for at least 15-20 minutes, seasoned, while the grill heats.
  • Step 3
    Grill the chicken breasts for about 10-15 minutes, depending on thickness, until no longer pink in the center and a thermometer reads 165°F, flipping once halfway through cooking. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into ½-inch-thick slices.
  • Step 4
    Meanwhile, mix the cucumbers with the dressing and set aside.
  • Step 5
    When ready to assemble, place one butter lettuce leaf inside each pita half. Divide the chicken between the pitas, and spoon the cucumber salad in after. Serve warm or cold.

    Note: Want to add some flavor? Swap out the salt & pepper and sprinkle chicken breasts with half a packet of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuke and chicken are an awesome duo! I've always used the ranch cuke dressing...but it is so much better with fresh garden cukes and hot grilled chicken!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so good! I wasn’t sure if my picky teen would like the basil ranch I made this with basil ranch and with original in two separate recipes and my picky 16 year old ate both the only dressing she adds to everything basically is original ranch I was shocked she ate basil ranch she admits original is still her favorite but in that recipe either is great! She now puts original on a ton of items just a few to mention is pizza, spaghetti, and ham and cheese grilled sandwiches now she tasted it like many she’s addicted to Hidden Valley brand Ranch as she tasted a different brand at her friends and knows why she never ate ranch dressing they just don’t compare to HBR! Please make more recipes HVR at this rate I’ll need a few coupons I bought 3 bottles of HVR in last 9 days and she’s almost went through it all time to restock!!
