1. In the bowl, combine chicken with lemon juice, thyme and salt & pepper and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour (if you don't have an hour marinate as long as you have).

Think Mediterranean: light crisp flavors go with light crisp wines. Nothing fancy here just good elegant wines paired with good fresh food. Avoid anything heavy, too aromatic or complex that might complicate the food. Can't go wrong with a dry rose!

Mama's Wisdom

This dish is full of nutrients, much more than most sandwiches, especially if you use spinach, extra peppers, onions and tzatziki. The more good stuff you put in it the better!
