Caesar Salad Pita Pockets

Pita bread

This is a simple recipe for a healthy Caesar salad pita pocket, which is perfect to eat on a hot day.

Serves 1

  • 1 slice of white or brown bread
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 2 Romaine lettuce leaves, chopped
  • 5-6 slices of cucumber
  • 1 whole wheat pita
  • Olive oil
  • Caesar salad dressing (optional)

To make the croutons, heat your oven to 275ºC and cut the bread into ½-inch cubes. Place in a mixing bowl and toss with a little olive oil, so each cube is lightly coated.

Arrange the cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook in the oven for about 10 minutes, then toss with a spatula and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes. Bake the croutons until partly crispy and beginning to turn golden.

Cook the chicken breast under a hot grill for 8-10 minutes. Slice into bite sized pieces, making sure it’s cooked through.

Mix everything together and stuff into a toasted pita bread, then drizzle with Caesar salad dressing. Totally delicious!
