{Caesar} Chicken Salad Pitas

Since summer is almost here and we are so busy, there is not a lot of time for me to spend in the kitchen.  I know I am sad too:(  It has been so HOT here lately and none of us have wanted to eat a huge meal so I thought this would be perfect.  I really enjoyed it because I was able to make the Chicken Salad earlier in the day and didn't have to cook anything when it was actually time for dinner.  For this recipe you can use your favorite Caesar Dressing or make your own.  


Ingredients:
  • 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts 
  • 3-4 Tablespoons of Caesar Dressing
  • Salt and Pepper
  • A Pinch of Dried Parsley
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • About 2 Tablespoons of Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 4 Whole Wheat Pitas
Servings 4
Boil chicken until cooked thoroughly.  Let cool and shred into fairly large pieces.  Cool completely in the refrigerator.  In a bowl, combine shredded chicken, caesar dressing, dried parsley, and Parmesan cheese.  Mix with a fork.  Salt and Pepper to taste.  Refrigerate until you are to serve.  Stuff some romaine lettuce in the pita and add in chicken.  You can top with a little more Parmesan if you would like.  Enjoy!  

**I used the smaller sized pitas and cut them in half and served both halves to each person.
