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 like knowing exactly what I am eating. While I’ll always love sandwich classics, like PB&J, I also get excited when I pack a new combination, like this Mediterranean Chicken Pita Sandwich.
If you love Greek salads, this Mediterranean 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 recipe, but any tasty packaged hummus will also work.
I love the crunch from the cucumbers and the tangy bite from the feta and olives. For a vegetarian option, you can leave out the chicken and just add more of the veggies and cheese. Enjoy!
