  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place chicken in a saucepan with garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary; add water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat medium-low, cover, and simmer until chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Remove chicken, let cool, and cut into strips.
  3. Meanwhile, place bread cubes on a baking sheet. Spray with butter spray; sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley.
  4. Bake bread cubes in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Turn cubes; spray again with butter spray and sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes until golden brown and crunchy. Remove croutons, and let cool.
  5. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly browned and crispy. Remove bacon from skillet, drain on paper towels and crumble.
  6. Combine chicken, bacon, lettuce, and croutons in a large bowl. Toss with Caesar salad dressing and Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss again. Spoon salad mixture into pita bread halves.

Pitas purchased wouldn't cut in half, so it ruined the entire dish.

Loved this, but I was a little lazy. When I was in the store getting the chicken, I bought croutons, put them in a Ziploc bag and banged them just a bit with a rolling pin just to reduce the siz...

these are wonderful. i left out the croutons becuase then it would seem to much like a salad and my husband doesnt like salad. but this was absoultly amazing definatly going to be a weekly meal ...

Super tasty. Left out the croutons because I was feeling lazy. The boyfriend loved it, had it for lunch and dinner today. Thanks!

Made this for lunch last week and my daughter and I loved it. I used leftover chicken and stuck with my homemade caesar salad dressing from this site. So delish and thanks Michelle!

I planned on following the exact recipe, but bought flat bread by accident, so I decided to make pizzas....mmmmmmm! I chopped the chicken then mixed it with the dressing and topped the flatbrea...

Very good easy recipe. I like to bake the pita halves for a bit before I stuff them. This gives the pita more texture.

So Easy and very tasty - we just add some hummus on the side and it was perfect!

I made this recipes exactly as written except that I didn't have any pitas so we ate it as the main dish for dinner. My husband loved it.

This was definitly good, but if you're not a fan of caesar salads you won't like it, because that what it basically is, in a pita. Anyways, my husband and I both enjoyed the recipe quite a bit.
