Pita with Hummus Stuffed with Chicken and Cucumbers

Chicken and Cucumber Stuffed Pita

Since I was a little girl I’ve been eating pitas.  Stuffed, plain, as chips, and I love them especially when they’re homemade.  I actually found a brand that I really like from my local Walmart and they’re Whole Wheat too!  My favorite way to eat a pita is stuffed with protein and veggies with a little hummus!  Talking about hummus.. My pregnancy I didn’t have it once so I’ve been on a hummus kick that last month.  With pretzels and of course with my pita!  So while making this recipe I learned three things..

  1. I take TOO many pictures.
  2. I use TOO many seasonings.
  3. I should have made double so we’d have leftovers.. 
Just thought I should put that out there.. Where was I?  Oh, yes!  Hummus!  I only eat one brand if I don’t make it homemade, and it’s Sabra.   My favorite is the Tahini!  I really wish they’d make an organic version.  Since I purchased it hubby has been addicted.. he never tried hummus before (shocking!) and he absolutely loves it.  
 
So we’ve been eating pitas, eating hummus, eating, and eating!

Then slice the chicken breasts like so,

Give them a little toss so the flavor and million and one seasonings can get into each piece!

Place in a hot skillet on medium heat with olive oil.  Once browned flip over.  When they’re just about cooked pour in a little seltzer and let cook until pan is almost dry.

Meanwhile toast your pita – CUT before placing into the toaster oven (pocket gets hot if not and you can really burn yourself)  Let it cool slightly and smear hummus on one or both sides (inside of course!)
