This sounds like a wonderful recipe. I cannot wait to try it but I think that I would grill the chicken rather than microwave it. Just seems alot better that way.

I had made this for lunch the other day. I had grilled my chicken in a grill pan the night before with a little bit of jerk seasoning on them. Then in the morning I had mixed all the ingredients together and let it sit in the fridge till lunchtime. I had used red peppers only because I prefer them otherwise I did everything as written. I found it needed a bit more flavor though probably more italian dressing with salt and pepper. I had warmed up my pita pockets in the microwave before filling them. Makes for a filling lunch with a bowl of soup. It was enjoyed. Thanks for sharing your recipe Gingerbear. Made for the Think Pink Tag Oct'09
