We are always looking for something to eat on game night. Can’t be greasy, can’t be mess, has to taste great. I am often stuck in the can’t think of anything zone when it comes to coming up with what to fix. For whatever reason, we decided to try chicken salad but in a pita so that it wouldn’t drip out.
I loved that the chicken salad was more enhanced by the pita than it normally is in bread. Plus, my pita chicken salad sandwich didn’t get soggy like they normally do with bread. So we didn’t have to worry too much about getting food stuff on the game pieces. It was certainly a game night success!
Not to mention the fact that we eat a ton of meals with chicken! This one has made the rotation list!
- 2 cans of cooked chicken (or 2 cups)
- 1 1/2 cups California seedless table grapes, rinsed and cut in half
- 1/4 cup celery, diced
- 1 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
- 2 tablespoons basil, fresh, chopped
- 1/2 cup green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
- 1 tablespoon lemon Juice, fresh
- 1 Package of Pita Sandwhich Thins
- Combine all salad ingredients in bowl and mix well.
- Fill pitas and serve!
Note: If possible, mix prepare this the night before (or even two). It gives the flavors a chance to meld and enhance each other. You could also use it like a dip with pita chips if you want all finger foods!
What does one right about Pita Chicken Salad Sandwiches?
It’s a yummy recipe, to say the least. It’s also fantastic for picnics because the pita bread doesn’t get all soggy. Personally, I prefer to eat them when the weather is nice outside. Keeps me away from a hot stove and doesn’t knock the energy out of me. I am also totally in favor of meals I can make ahead of time! I really need to get on the freezer meal thing!
Feedback Thoughts I hope You’ll Read
I’ve received feedback that you (much like myself) hate that there are 12 million words before we get to the recipes. Since I want this site to be enjoyable for you too, I truly appreciate your thoughts, ideas and suggestions! Hopefully, the button to skip to it was helpful for you. Unfortunately, those powers that decide whether or not our posts go in search engines require a certain amount of words. They also want us to say our keywords a certain amount of time. So, I’m putting these here at the end. Geez.
It also helps us when you comment or share, because the search engines start noticing us…. So, ya know, if ya got a second….
Of course, I’m also running out of things to say in relation to the actual recipe. It drives me insane that this stuff it necessary on a recipe post. I’m like you, if searching for a recipe, all that ‘fluff’ we have to add drives me nuts.
AND it totally stinks that we (myself included) don’t often bother reading all that fluff, since it is generally filled with relevant thoughts but always our hearts and souls go into our writing. That reaches the max of my required word count, so I’ll stop here.
Please share your modifications, thoughts and such in the comment section!
