Chicken Avocado Pitas

CHICKEN AVOCADO PITAS are a healthy and delicious lunch option, perfect for any day. Pita sandwiches prove that good for you lunches don’t have to taste boring! So much flavor.

My favorite type of moment in cooking is when the healthy meals turn out to be the tastiest. Nothing is better than finding a light recipe that is just as delicious as a fattening one! This Chicken Avocado Pitas recipe is proof! They are healthy and filling, and taste just as great if they were packed full of calories. This is one of our absolute favorite healthy summer sandwiches.

(READ: Pat needs to let me buy deck furniture ASAP! hint hint…) I envision us making these Chicken Avocado Pitas, sitting out on the deck drinking Spiked Raspberry Sweet Tea, and watching Dill explore the great outdoors. (He is an indoor cat, but he LOVES being on the deck.  One day he is going to make those birds pay for taunting him in the yard every day!)

How to Make Chicken Avocado Pitas

These Chicken Avocado Pitas can be whipped up in a jiff, served hot or cold, and will satisfy even the pickiest crowd. I love the bright colors of the cherry tomatoes and fresh avocado. Made extra creamy with greek yogurt sauce, you don’t need to feel guilty for enjoying this so much.  Healthy meets delicious in these chicken pita sandwiches! My favorite.

I barely remembered what that felt like.  Super nice, but that’s about as hot as I want it to get.  I feel like we completely skipped Spring.  Whatever, Mother Nature. At least we have these Pitas to make us happy!
