Chinese Chicken Salad Pita Sandwiches
I came home from classes for lunch today and threw together this experimental pita sandwich with things I had on hand, including some leftover grilled chicken from last night’s supper. Next time I make grilled chicken, I’m planning leftovers just to make this tasty sandwich. It was the best lunch I’ve had this week.
4 boneless skinless fully cooked grilled chicken breasts, cooled and diced
4 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp chinese five spice powder
1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chinese chili paste
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
1 diced tomato
1/4 tsp balck pepper
Toss all ingredients together well and use to fill whole wheat pita pockets. You can add lettuce or spinach to the pita as well if desired.

This looks like a good twist to the traditional chicken salad. Yum!
