Pita Pockets

These Pita pockets are so light and refreshing, they can be great for a light lunch, and if you can find mini pita’s a great dish to serve at party’s. I love just setting everything out on the table like a taco bar, so everyone can make their own, customizing it their personal taste. Add a salad and a side of fries and these are a great weeknight dinner option. I love making my own Hummus but when I don’t have time I use cedar’s plain hummus and it’s amazing.

Here’s what you’ll need for 10 Pita Pockets

5 fresh pitas, cut in half

1 batch of chicken tikka

2 tomatoes, seeded and diced

1 cup shredded lettuce

1 cucumber, diced

2 Tblspn lemon juice

1/2 tsp sumac

salt and pepper to taste

2 Tblspns tahini

1 cup hummus

Start off by preparing the chicken tikka. While the tikka is cooking, mix together the cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce with some salt, pepper, lemon juice and sumac in a bowl. Cut the pita breads in half and carefully open. Microwave for 20 seconds to soften. To assemble, spread some hummus on one side of the pita bread, then fill with chicken and the veggies. Drizzle with tahini and enjoy!
