Mediterranean Chicken Pita Sandwiches

With school and work starting up again after summer vacations, many of us are in need of new lunch options to throw into the mix. Personally, I always try to bring my lunch to work because it is cheaper, healthier, and I love knowing what I am eating. While I’ll always love sandwich classics like PB&J and turkey & cheese, I also get excited when I pack a new combination.

If you love Greek salads, this chicken pita sandwich is for you. It has all the delicious flavors of a true mediterranean meal, packed into a healthy and hearty whole wheat pita. I used my homemade avocado hummus for this sandwich, but any tasty packaged hummus will also work.

I love the crunch from the cucumbers and the tangy bite from the feta and olives. Feel free to leave out the chicken for an equally satisfying vegetarian lunch option. I hope you love this as much as I do!
