Ingredients

the sauce

  • 4 tbsp ceasar dressing
  • 2 tbsp Valentina Hot Sauce or another vinegar based sauce of your choice- like Franks Red Hot.

The Filling

  • 1 lb chicken breast boneless, skinless cut into 3"x1/2" strips
  • 4 cups salad mix your choice of style
  • 4 pocket pita
  • 1 cup red onion sliced into 1"x1/4" slices
  • 2 cup mushroom chopped rough (1/4" chunks)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese your choice, I used pizza mix
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp water

The Dry Rub

  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder (I used chipotle)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Instructions

  • To Make the dry rub combine all spices in a small bowl
  • Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high. Once shimmering add the chicken and could til no longer pink, 5-8 mins
  • Add the spices to the pan with the water and lime juice. Stir to combine, scraping up the bottom of the pan as you go until all the chicken is fully coated. 1-2 mins
  • Microwave the pitas individually for 20s or heat under the broiler on bottom rack, 1 minute per side. This makes the pitas easier to open without tearing.
  • In a tupperware container add 1 cup salad mix, 1/2 cup chicken, 1/4 cup cheese, 1 tbsp dressing, 1/2 tbsp or to taste hot sauce, 1/2 cup mushrooms and 1/4 cup red onion. Add the lid and toss vigorously until all ingredients are coated in the sauce.
  • Stuff the pita, wrap and enjoy

Notes

The recipe just calls for raw red onions, but I used pickled. You can find that recipe here
