Little Italy Chicken Pitas
A smart trick to this zesty sandwich is using oil from the sun-dried tomatoes to prepare the vinaigrette. Prepare the chicken filling ahead of time and pack separately. Fill pitas just before eating. Fresh, whole fruit is your best option for sides and snacks during the day. Change things up by selected fruit that’s in season--you'll enjoy diverse flavors plus nutritional variety as your choices change naturally throughout the year. An apple, chilled grapes, or mango slices offer a great source of fiber, keeping you feeling fuller longer.
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar * 1 1/2 tablespoons sun-dried tomato oil
1 tablespoon chopped sun-dried tomatoes * 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced * 4 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1 cup chopped tomato (about 1 medium) * 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated Asiago cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil * 6 pitas, cut in half * 3 cups mixed baby greens
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in chicken, tomato, cheese, and basil.
Line each pita half with 1/4 cup greens. Divide chicken mixture evenly among pita halves.
