Chicken Pita Sandwiches Recipe

Chicken Pita Sandwiches Recipe

Prep Time 5min

Leftover rotisserie chicken or holiday turkey makes great sandwiches for a quick meal or lunch box filler.

What you'll need

  • 1 cup cooked chicken (or turkey) shredded
  • 1 medium-size pita (about 6" across)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 2 leaves lettuce (red leaf, romain, etc.)
  • 1/2 tomato, in slices (optional)


Yields 2 servings

How to make it

  1. Cut the pita in half to make two pockets.
  2. Spread the mayonnaise and mustard equally between the two halves' insides.
  3. Stuff the chicken into the pockets, then add the lettuce and tomato. If you are packing these for lunch, keep the tomato in a separate baggy until it's time to eat so the bread won't get soggy. This will make two sandwiches, each one suitable for two small children. One adult will easily be able to eat both halves.
