I copied this delightful recipe when I was in Italy visiting my Aunt Elsa.  The refreshing sandwich filling is nicely flavored with oregano and mint.  I like it tucked into chewy pita bread.  (This recipe is Diabetic Friendly!!)

Mediterranean Chicken Sandwiches

1 ¼ lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch strips

2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
