What’s for Lunch – Pita pockets w/ grilled chicken and onions

Pita pocket

One evening, we had stopped at Pita Pit near Indianapolis. Pita Pit has a variety of Pita pockets served Subway style – you get to choose the type of Pita you want and choose your ‘toppings’. It is a healthy option compared to fast foods and got me inspired to make one at home. Here is a pita pocket dish we had for lunch today

Ingredients
Couple of pita breads
2 chicken breasts (it helped make 5 pita pockets)
Shredded lettuce
Diced tomato
Diced Onion
Diced Mushrooms

Note: The toppings are only limited to your imagination, you can mix and add as many toppings as you like. Find the ones that work for you

Steps:

1. Grill the chicken breasts. I rubbed some taco seasoning on mine before grilling on a cast iron skillet. Set aside once done and slice into bite sized chunks

2. Caramelize the onions. I add a dash of oil on to the pan, along with the onions and some salt. Leave it on medium and stir often till the onions start to turn brown. I add tiny bit of sugar to help caramelize the onions. I feel it adds a depth of flavor as well. It ought to take about 10-15 minutes

3. Follow the onions with mushrooms till they are caramelized and cooked. It ought to take about 5-10 minutes

4. Time to assemble the pita pockets: I microwave the pita bread for 30 seconds before assembling. Open the pita bread and start with the grilled chicken, spread a layer of mayo or light mayo. Then add the caramelized onions followed by mushrooms. Finish off with tomatoes and lettuce. Done!
