Chicken Caesar Pitas

Dinner will be on the table in no time with this sandwich idea.  Serve with baked chips or a fruit salad.  This recipe serves 4 but is easily doubled.  This would also make a great lunch.  Also, feel free to use leftover chicken or pre-cooked chicken strips if you’re running low on time.

Healthified Chicken Caesar Pitas

What you’ll need:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 ounces each)
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat Caesar dressing
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce (or spinach)
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot (about one carrot)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 whole-wheat pita breads (6-inch), cut in half to form pockets
  • 1 plum tomato, thinly sliced

 

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat oven to broil.
  • Brush the chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon dressing on both sides.  Sprinkle with pepper.
  • Broil 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice runs clear when cut at the thickest part of the chicken.
  • Cool for about 5 minutes then cut into thin slices.
  • In a bowl, toss the lettuce, carrot and cheese with the remaining dressing.  Fill each pita with chicken and tomato; top with the lettuce mixture.
