Avocado Chicken Pitas

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

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! 

 Click here for printable recipe.

The ingredients:
4 whole pita breads
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!
