These easy, on-the-run homemade stuffed pitas are a great way to pack a nutritious punch and fill hungry bellies. And they are open to endless variations, so you can tailor them to whatever your family likes.
For protein, use fresh or store-bought or leftover chicken, turkey, steak, etc., and create your own dinner on the go by mixing in lots of veggies—cooked and raw—and your favourite flavour combinations—Greek, Caesar, BLT, whatever you like. (Tip: Consider cooking extra next time you fire up the grill, and just store it in the fridge until you're ready to wrap 'n' roll.)
These pitas taste great hot or cold.
I chose a Greek chicken pita as that is my family's favourite, but this could just as easily become a chicken Caesar pita by subbing in Caesar dressing, or a BLT by adding bacon crumbles and ranch dressing.
My kids loved this, and thought wrapping them up just like takeout was so much fun! Home run for Mom!
