Weekend Wildness

I love making "eat with your hands" food on the weekends, especially those which don't require piles of dishes. Who wants to spend Friday and Saturday washing dishes?

This simple Chicken Pita is so easy and tasty, you'll never buy one again, without thinking, " I can do better than this at home!".

Chicken Pita

4 Chicken breasts, skin and bone removed and sliced into "ring-finger" size pieces
2 Teaspoons Chilli Powder (I like it hot so I also add a chopped fresh chilli)
2 Teaspoons Runny Honey (I also like it a little sweet)
1 Lemon
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
Salt and Jenny Morris Lemon Pepper
8 Pitas breads warmed through until they look like a pillow

Place all the ingredients into a ziploc bag, squeeze the lemon and place into the bag also.
Let it sit in the fridge for a few hours or over-night.
Heat your pan and fry the chicken with the marinade until cooked through.

Fill you pitas with the chicken and finely chopped salad.
I used avocado, lettuce, pepperdews and spring onion.

Take a bite and feel it flavours melt in your mouth!

Nic - They are so versatile.
Jeanne - That's exactly the way we see it.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
