Easy Family Recipes: Mediterranean Chicken Pitas

Sometimes, it seems like you can stuff a pita with just about anything and the kids will gobble it up. “Pocket” breads are fun, even more so if you get the kids to lend a hand with the filling. These Mediterranean chicken pitas are stuffed with a mild, yet tasty chicken salad. We’ve cut the fat by using a plain Greek yogurt in place of the usual mayo, added some fresh dill for a little bit of flavor, and diced cucumbers and red bell pepper for crunch. Have the kids help with mixing the salad and stuffing the pitas. Want to pack these into a lunch without worrying about the pita getting soggy? Dry your lettuce really well, then use it as a liner between the salad and the bread. No more mushy bread!
