This is kind of like a sandwich, but different enough that I have been enjoying it:
Chicken Salad in a Pita.
I take a can of chicken breast (in a can like tuna), drain it thouroughly and put it in a bowl. I have ahead of time chopped very finely some celery, onion, and pickle and add to taste. I put 2-3 tbsp of lite mayo in with it, some salt and pepper to taste and it's done. I do it the night before so the flavors meld together.
At lunch, I use 1/2 a whole wheat pita. I put some shredded lettuce/cilantro in the bottom, scoop in some of the chicken salad, top with more lettuce and cilantro and slide in a couple of roma tomato slices. I really enjoy it!
Chicken Salad with 3tbsp of lite mayo 218
1/2 Whole Wheat Pita 80
vegetation - neglegible...maybe 10 calories or so? I don't usually count the veggies that I use small amounts of like that
The calories for the chicken is a whole can of the chicken which makes 2 of the 1/2 pitas, but I eat it all usually. So, if you have less calories to burn, only use half and you are at 109 calories plus the pita.
Yummy for the tummy! In fact, I've bought enough for next week too....
