20-Minute Chicken Caesar Pita Pockets

I know that I probably have complained about it here and there but I seriously have been on-the-go constantly as of late. I love the fact that I travel frequently but sometimes it just tends to take a toll on my body and mindset…and on my diet. I find myself eating out more and more because I don’t feel like cooking at home and making a huge mess in the kitchen. I’ve been trying to come up with some go-to recipes that require very little mess to be made in my kitchen. My latest favorite: Chicken Caesar Pitas.

One of my guilty pleasures is a delicious Caesar salad. I love those little salad kits that you can get in the grocery store but often find that the dressing is a bit ‘bleh’ for my taste. Often times I ditch the packet of dressing an opt for Litehouse Caesar Dressing because I honestly keep that stocked in my refrigerator. It’s much more flavorful than any other Caesar dressing that I’ve tried.

I was eating one of these delicious salads last week when it dawned on me how delicious it would be to have all of this salad goodness packed into a pita pocket. I know that this seems like a really simple recipe but it was genius! And then I added chicken and my night was complete.

If you’re in a dinner rut or in a rush to make dinner for your family, this meal comes together very quickly. My local grocery store also offers pre-grilled chicken breasts that make this meal even more simple. With life being so busy I try to make things as easy as possible without going out to dinner every night. Don’t get me wrong, I love someone waiting on me, unfortunately my pocket book will not allow for that lifestyle!

If you’re as busy as I tend to be, or if you’re just looking for a new dinner idea, try out these delicious Chicken Caesar Pitas. They may sound simple but they are simply delicious!
