Recipe of the Week

Mediterranean Chicken Pitas

There is no set amount of ingredients for this recipes - it just depends on how much you like each of them and how many you are serving. I'll put off to the side what we use and you can adjust for your family size

Tzatziki sauce (found in local grocery stores)
Diced Cucumbers (about 1/4 cucumber)
Diced Tomatoes (1 small roma tomato)
Diced Red Bell Peppers (1/2 red bell pepper)
Dices Avocado (1/2 avocado)
Diced Chicken, seasoned with a little salt and pepper (7 chicken tenderloins)
Caesar Salad Dressing (enough to coat chicken) (1/4 c)
Pita Pockets

Cook the diced chicken to about 80% done, add Caesar salad dressing and heat until the chicken is cooked through. When chicken is finished cooking, microwave pita pockets (so they are more pliable). Spread Tzatziki sauce on insides of pita, fill with ingredients. Enjoy.

With each of the chopped veggies, I put them into small bowls, which allows the one eating to use the veggies they want.

Let me know if you try them and what you think.
