Stuffed Chicken and Avocado Pita Bread
Prep Time 45 Minutes
Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 4 Cooked boneless chicken breasts shredded
  • 1 Cup diced red onion
  • 5 Ripe mashed avocados
  • 1 Cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 Tsp garlic salt
  • 1 Tsp sea Salt
  • 1 Tsp course ground pepper
  • 4 Whole pita bread with pockets
  • 1 Cup vegetable, olive or sunflower oil for frying

Add the first 8 ingredients together starting with the avocado. Be sure to mash your avo’s well with a potato masher. Heat the oil in a skillet to about 350 to 365°. Add the pita breads one at a time. Once hot, the pita bread will begin to puff up. Look for pita bread that isn't pre-sliced. Unfortunately, even if it isn't, you may find some holes or splits, if you do, take the back of a metal spatula, and hold it over the opening, as this helps the pita puff up. Continue to turn the pita until browned. Slice the pita in half and stuff the avocado and chicken mixture inside the pita. You may want to use a paper towel or oven mitt, as the pita bread will be quite hot.

We advice doubling or tripling the recipe as you are going to want to have some leftovers for lunch the next day.
