Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/2 boneless, skinless chicken breast
    2 Tablespoons light lime vinaigrette (Try Newman's Own Lighten Up)
    3 Tablespoons tomato-basil hummus (or your favorite flavor)
    1 slice of whole wheat pita bread (with or without pocket)
    Fresh lemon juice

Directions

1. Create a marinade of 2 tablespoons light lime vinaigrette, juice of half a lemon, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

2. Put half a boneless, skinless chicken breast to marinate: (thawed breast for one hour or frozen breast overnight) in fridge.

3. Heat nonstick skillet on med-med high heat and coat with Pam spray.

4. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and saute about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Midway through cooking time, stir in half of the remaining marinade to create a sauce. Make sure chicken is cooked completely (no pink) and marinade has reduced to thick, sticky texture that coats the chicken.

5. Turn off heat and remove skillet. Use the still-hot burner to quickly warm your pita, about 10 seconds on each side (be careful not to burn yourself). Or you can microwave the pita for 20 seconds.

6. Spread hummus on top of pita (or in the pocket), load up with citrus chicken and finish with a squeeze of lemon juice! Add veggies of your choice (diced tomatoes, onions, lettuce) or eat as is!

Goes well with a side of brown rice for a more filling meal!
