Yay PB cooks! icon biggrin Scrumptious Saturday Vol. 4 : Stuffing yourself!

Here’s something I enjoyed eating from last week. I haven’t cooked in a while but some days I just don’t feel like anything heavy and that’s when I pull out this tried and true recipe for Grilled Chicken Stuffed Pita Pockets.

Doesn’t it look cafe or restaurant worthy? Tastes just as good as it looks if I don’t say so myself icon biggrin Scrumptious Saturday Vol. 4 : Stuffing yourself!

It tastes best warm and if you crisp the pita a bit, it tastes so much better. I sometimes mix the salad leaves with some yuzu dressing for a fresh tangy flavor, or mix the leaves with some Japanese sesame dressing for a creamier flavor, depending on how I feel as I cook.

Also nice for packed lunches, in which case, don’t dress the salad leaves or the pita pocket will get soggy.

You can get the recipe for my version of grilled chicken pita pockets here.

Do you have other ideas for stuffed pita pockets? Or do you enjoy eating pita breads or flatbreads too? I love eating wraps and pita pockets because they are so easy to put together and are always light, healthy meals if you make them right. Plus it’s easy to make a cafe/restaurant worthy dish right in the comfort of your home icon smile Scrumptious Saturday Vol. 4 : Stuffing yourself! You can also cut the breads up, crisp them and have them with dips. Mmm… I’m making myself hungry! icon eek Scrumptious Saturday Vol. 4 : Stuffing yourself!

YUMMMM!! This looks so simple yet tasty! I’ve been loving really simple food lately myself. I really love falafels in my pitas!

Would you believe I’ve never had a Falafel? Such a sacrilege, I know! :P I think simple, fresh, good tasting food is the best to have.

Ooo! I’ve done something similar, but what I did was I marinated the chicken (now I can’t remember what sauce it was, but it was good!) overnight, stir fried it the next day, and stuffed them into the pita bread with chopped up tomatoes and cucumber. I curi this idea from Nando’s ^_^ But I didn’t think about crisping the bread! How did you do it? Oven?

Oh yum! Your version sounds absolutely delicious too! I heat and crisp my pitss by placing them in a hot pan without oil. Heat up the pan and place the pita in, let it heat through then flip over. An oven works too but the pan is faster ;)

Mmm I love the sound of your wrap fillings! I love how healthy and simple wraps are and they are deceptively filling too!

It reminds me of Nando’s!

Yes, I really love buying Pita breads, and I would just heat up those Ramly burgers, and stuff it wit Baby Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes, and Cheese.

Absolutely scrumptious yet cafe-worthy meal at home.

YUM YUM! :)~ I always fall back on an old fave when it comes to sandwiches – tuna mayo. :)

Oh yum! I happen to love tuna mayo too! I do prefer those that aren’t floating in mayo and I prefer using a lighter mayonnaise but it’s really a nice old fave for sandwich filling :D

It must be the right mayo, though. I recently bought Best Foods mayo but although it’s slightly pricier than Kraft mayo, it isn’t as yummy. :P

ooh i know what you mean! I usually go for Japanese mayo – the one with a Kewpie baby on it – I prefer the lighter flavour to the heavier American versions :D

Oh I remember when I couldnt cook in uni. It was torture! You could make something similar without cooking, by using canned tuna. But if you don’t have a fridge to store stuff in, it would be hard too :(
