  1. Prepare Tzatziki sauce by straining yogurt in cheesecloth over medium bowl for several hours, or until most of the liquid has drained off. Press the grated cucumber in a strainer until it feels almost dry to the touch. Combine the yogurt, cucumber, 1 teaspoon lemon juice in a medium bowl. Add the mint, 1 clove garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir well; cover and chill for 2 hours. Will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  2. Prepare Tyson® chicken according to package directions.
  3. While chicken is cooking prepare Greek red wine vinaigrette by combining red wine vinegar, 3 cloves garlic, basil, oregano, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a jar. Cover tightly with lid and shake until well mixed. Will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  4. To assemble: Slice prepared chicken into thin strips and place into each pita half. Drizzle the vinaigrette on top of the chicken. Add Tzatriki sauce and arugula leaves.
