This pita sandwich is a bit of a show-off, but you can hardly blame it when it’s so juicy, crunchy, sweet and ever-so-slightly spicy. It makes a terrific midterm replacement when the classics are losing their luster. (We still love you, PB&J and ham and cheese!)
Ingredients
  • 2 cups (500 ml) diced cooked chicken
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) seedless grapes, quartered
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) curry powder
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) Dijon mustard
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • torn lettuce
  • 2 whole wheat pita pockets, sliced in half
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, toss together the chicken, celery, green onion and grapes. In a small bowl, stir together the mayo, yogurt, curry powder and mustard. Stir this into the chicken mixture. Taste to check seasoning before adding salt and pepper

  2. Tuck a few pieces of lettuce into each pita half, then spoon in your chicken salad. Wrap each pita in plastic wrap before packing into a lunch box.
