Easy Pita Dinner

Last night, I made a very yummy dinner. This recipe came from the Eat Better America website. This recipe calls for pork but we changed it to chicken and it was delish!

Peppered Chicken Pitas with Garlic Spread

1/3cup fat-free mayonnaise or salad dressing
2tablespoons fat-free (skim) milk
2cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2lb boneless chicken breasts or strips, cut into thin bite-size strips
1tablespoon olive or canola oil
1teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1fresh red pepper, grilled
4pita fold breads (7 inch)
1.In small bowl, mix mayonnaise, milk and garlic; set aside.
2.In medium bowl, mix chicken oil and pepper. Heat 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken cooked. Stir in bell peppers; heat until warm.
3.Heat pita folds as directed on package. Lightly spread one side of each pita fold with garlic mixture. Spoon pork mixture over each; fold up.

The sauce you make for the pita is ammmaazing. It tastes like a really light garlicky, ranch sauce. We topped these with lettuce & tomatoes, too.

I also made Ina Garten's Baked Sweet Potato Fries


  1. Preheat oven to 425*F.
  2. Cut sweet potatoes in wedges or like french fries.
  3. Place wedges on large baking pan or cookie sheet. Pour over olive oil, and toss to mix.
  4. Now sprinkle over brown sugar, salt, and black pepper. Toss to coat wedges.
  5. Spread out in a single layer. Place pan in oven and bake for 15 minutes, then take out and turn wedges over.
  6. Place back in oven and bake another 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy on the outside.
  7. Sprinke with extra kosher salt to taste. The cooking time will depend on how big the wedges are. Enjoy!

Delicious Dinner!
