Macros

Serving Size: 1/2 pita
  • Protein - 34.3 g
  • Carbs - 20.3 g
  • Fat - 7.4 g

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, tenders or thighs
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Braggs or coconut liquid aminos
  • 1 teaspoon of each: cumin, chipotle chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano & salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • for serving: 2 pita breads, romaine, tomatoes, onions, tzatziki or hummus

Cooking Utensils

  • large mixing bowl
  • non-stick skillet

Directions

  1. Dice chicken into 1″ cubes and place in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the aminos and seasonings to the chicken and combine well.
  3. Add olive oil to a non-stick skillet and bring to medium heat.
  4. Transfer seasoned chicken to skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of chicken.
  5. While the chicken is cooking prep your pita pockets. Cut pita’s in half and stuff with romaine, red onion, tomatoes and dressing of choice.
  6. Once the chicken is fully cooked, transfer to a meal prep container or serve immediately. It’s best to store the chicken separately from the pita so it doesn’t get soggy.

 

Suggestions:

  • For an even tastier flavor profile, allow the chicken breast to marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • I used BFREE gluten-free stone-baked pita.
  • Additional toppings include feta, olives, artichokes and spinach.
  • For rest days, simply serve chicken over a leafy green salad with all of the accompaniments!
