  • Cooking Time: 9 minutes


1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1 Tbsp. fat-free milk
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
3 (4-oz) boneless, skinless chicken breast cutlets, grilled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup refrigerated fresh salsa
2 whole wheat pita bread rounds, split horizontally
1 tsp. olive oil
3/4 cup (3 oz) reduced-fat shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
2/3 cup chopped tomatoes
1 Tbsp. sliced black olives, drained


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F. In a small bowl, mix the sour cream, milk, and cumin until well combined; set aside.
  2. In another bowl, mix the chicken and salsa; set aside.
  3. Place the pita bread, split side up, on a baking sheet. Lightly brush with the olive oil and bake for 4 minutes, or until slightly crisp. Spoon the chicken mixture evenly over the pitas. Sprinkle with the cheese.
  4. Bake about 5 minutes more, until the chicken is heated through and the cheese is melted. Top with the lettuce, tomatoes, and olives. Drizzle with the sour cream mixture and serve.
