Chicken Apricot Pockets
Why I Love This Recipe
Sweet and savory, a perfect flavor duo to stuff inside a pita pocket. With two canned ingredients conveniently stocked on your pantry shelf, protein-rich chicken and apricots high in beta-carotene, you can put this picnic pocket together in minutes.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 can (10 ounces) premium chunk chicken in water, drained
1 can (8 ounces) apricots in juice, drained and sliced
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped, unsalted pecans
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1 teaspoon curry powder
4 whole wheat pitas, sliced in half
4 cups fresh watercress
Combine chicken, apricots, celery, pecans and green onions in a medium bowl. In a separate small bowl, blend mayonnaise, mustard and curry powder. Add the curried mayonnaise to the chicken mixture; toss gently. Line pita halves with watercress.
Spoon about 3/4 cup chicken mixture into each pita half. Repeat to fill other pitas.
