Slightly adapted from a Cooking Light Magazine recipe. I love this chicken mixture. It's very refreshing. I like to make a full recipe, put it in the fridge and have it for lunch each day.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, tossing to coat.
  2. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add cumin and garlic; cook 1 minute or until toasted, stirring frequently.
  4. Pour cumin mixture over chicken mixture; toss well to combine.
  5. Stuff each pita with about 2/3 cup chicken salad and serve. I often use half of a larger pita.

I had this for lunch today and was very skeptical, but you are right it was very refreshing, yummy, and healthy. It filled me up too. I just used leftover baked chicken. Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes.
