Crazy nights are pretty frequent around here, so I'm always on the hunt for easy, but filling meals to try. This simple meal had it all--it was easy, healthy, and filling--and was perfect served with a fruit smoothie. The little kids picked off the tomatoes, but otherwise really enjoyed these as much as the adults and older kids!
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. hot pepper sauce
3/4 lb. cooked rotisserie chicken, skin removed and cut into strips
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Directions: Brush one side of each pita bread with oil. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until browned and crisp. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mash the avocado with lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, and hot pepper sauce. Spread over pitas. Layer with chicken, tomato, and cheese. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until cheese in melted. Makes 4 servings Enjoy!
