Prep time

10 min.

  • 2 slices smoked bacon
  • 4 oz rotisserie chicken breast, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1⁄4 cup diced red onion
  • 1⁄2 tsp garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 large whole wheat pita
  • 1⁄2 cup mixed baby greens
  • 1⁄2 tomato, sliced

Preheat the oven to 400°. Line a sheet pan with the bacon, and bake 15-20 minutes until crispy. (If you’re too impatient to wait for the bacon to bake, cook it in the microwave by placing on a paper towel-lined plate, then topping with another paper towel; cook for 6-8 minutes.)

Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, add the shredded rotisserie chicken, yogurt, mustard, honey, red onion, and seasonings. Toss until well-combined.

Lightly heat the pita in the microwave to soften. Cut it in half, and stuff with the honey-mustard chicken, baby greens, and tomato slices, and add one bacon strip to each half.
