Directions

  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.

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.

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.
