skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
butter flavored cooking spray
1 large head
romaine lettuce leaves, torn into bite size pieces
1 (8 ounce) bottle
bottled Caesar salad dressing
freshly grated Parmesan cheese to taste
salt and black pepper to taste
1 (10 ounce) package
(6-inch) pocket pita bread, halved
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 size, also picked up some bacon bits. (I guess I was real lazy) Sprinkled the croutons and bacon bits into the delicious salad and everyone loved them. You can call me lazy on this one, but........oh heck, I'm just lazy.
Made lots of changes to the recipe: used garlic basil wraps instead of pitas, seasoned the chicken with garlic powder, sea salt, poultry seasoning, and pepper and baked instead of boiling it. I also skipped the croutons and used packaged bacon bits. I also used packaged lettuce, which had carrots and red cabbage in it. I also added some onion to the salad. Used Cardini's Caesar dressing. Yummy!! I enjoyed these a lot and ate two in the same day. I thought they tasted like wraps from a certain fast food place around here. Hubby didn't like it as much---left his second one, and didn't bother to take it to work with him. This also is not a good recipe for kids---my toddler only ate a few bites. I would have given this at least four stars, but since the family wasn't impressed, I gave less. Maybe I'll make it again for friends.
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 thank you so much for this wonderful recipe.
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!
Very good easy recipe. I like to bake the pita halves for a bit before I stuff them. This gives the pita more texture.
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 flatbread added the cheese and baked. My picky son even liked it (without the lettuce of course) I will do this again and will bake a little longer, I liked the edges that got a little crispy! also did not have rosemary so I left it out. I WILL FIX THIS AGAIN and will try the pocket thing too maybe? idk? it was sooo yummy this way :) did the chicken exact and was surprise how moist it turned out. I let it completely cool before cutting.
So Easy and very tasty - we just add some hummus on the side and it was perfect!
