Pita pockets are a creative way to pack flavor and nutrients in a hand-held dish. This Marinated Chicken Pita Pocket provides the palate with sweet and savory flavors. The recipe calls for pita bread, chicken breast strips, spicy prepared salsa, lime, mustard, cooking spray, lettuce leavers, refried beans, sour cream, and more salsa for topping. It may take time to marinate the chicken, but once they are ready to pack in the pockets, it will be a party for the taste buds.

  • 2 chicken breasts (medium, sliced into strips)
  • 1/2 cup salsa (prepared spicy)

This was one of the easiest recipes for this dish that I have ever made. It has a bit of spiciness to it which I like and it tastes incredible. The chicken was not at all dry and it emitted a lot of flavor. I would rate this recipe at 5 stars and look forward to cooking it again.
