Chicken Pita Pockets

Just a few ingredients and you have yourself a portable, flavorful lunch!

This is part of my Grocery Haul Series, where a 2-bag grocery haul provides the meals for the week!

How Does this fit in with the Grocery Haul?

This is something I make soon after a grocery haul because they are nice to have in the fridge during the week. The utility ingredient here is the yogurt, and it will pop up in a lot of the recipes in the Grocery Haul.


These are so quick to assemble and great for my school lunch bag. The components are pitas, hummus, chicken and pickled veg (if desired).
