garden pitas!

 We've been trying to eat a little healthier lately, as are many people around this time of year :). Remembering this recipe, I called up my mom and asked her to send it my way so I could try it out on the hubs. No surprises, he loved them! They are light but filling and just different than most "diet foods". Which really, these pitas aren't diet food at all they just aren't fried chicken- do you see what I'm saying? Ok, hope you enjoy! 

Garden Fresh Pitas
1 1/2 c. cut-up cooked chicken
1/3 c. Creamy Italian dressing [light for low-fat]
1/4 c. finely chopped celery
4 small Pita breads [whole wheat]
lettuce leaves
1 medium tomatoe, sliced
1/2 c. thinly sliced cucumber
In medium bowl combine chicken, dressing, and celery.  Chill.  Line breads with lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber.  Spoon chicken mixture into center of pita bread. If you prefer your pitas warm before putting the chicken mixture in them, wrap in foil and heat in the oven on low for a few minutes. Avoid the microwave as it tends to toughen the bread up a bit.
