- Light a grill or start a charcoal fire. Preheat oven to 300°F.
- Brush chicken breasts on both sides with lemon juice. Sprinkle with oregano.
- Remove grill top and lightly coat with cooking spray. Return to grill and arrange chicken breasts and onion slices on top of grill. Cook, turning once, for 5 to 6 minutes per side, until chicken juices run clear when prodded with a tip of a sharp knife. Onion slices should take about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer onions to a carving board and cut into strips.
- When chicken is done; transfer to carving board and cut into 1/2-inch strips. Keep warm.
- If using Arabic bread, cut in half; if using pita bread, leave whole. Warm in the oven for a few minutes until pliable, but not crisp.
- Place the chicken and onion strips on the center of each bread piece, sprinkle with mint, and roll up.
