I have recently begun using pitas for cooking and I love the different recipes associated with it! A fun & light food. My last pita recipe was pizza and it was delicious. This recipe my friend shared with me and I am forever grateful because it is delicious. I will be sharing a recipe for a Chicken Pita. I was able to make 3 pitas from this recipe, one for dinner tonight, one for lunch tomorrow and one for leftovers tomorrow :).
What You’ll Need:
- Pita bread
- Chicken breasts (I would use 1) or tenderloins (I used 3)
- Quite a few crumbles of fresh mozzarella
- Handful of Spinach, Kale, Arugula or whichever find of greens mix you’d prefer
- Half of a small white onion
- Handful of Mushrooms (I love the baby bellas)
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Cutting board
- Sharp knife
- Large mixing bowl
Rinse chicken off and then place on cutting board and cut into small bite sized pieces and season with salt and pepper. Heat skillet and add olive oil. Once skillet is heated up add chicken pieces and cook until browned and done. Use spatula to move chicken around and continue to use once vegetables are added.
Then add vegetables to skillet that contains the chicken, cook through until the vegetables are done then pour the chicken and vegetables into the large mixing bowl and add in crumbles of fresh mozzarella and mix together. Use spatula to mix everything together in the mixing bowl.
With spatula place the chicken and vegetable mix on one half of the pita and fold the over half over, place back in skillet while it’s still heated and let the cheese and other ingredients melt together then flip over and let all ingredients melts on the other side. This should only take about 30 seconds or less since the only thing that really needs to melt is the cheese.
Once the pita is crispy and all ingredients are melted together, remove from skillet and place on plate and enjoy while it’s hot!
