2 teaspoons dijon-style mustard
1 cup cooked, Mahatma® or Carolina® White or Whole Grain Brown Rice
1 cup cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced (about 6 oz)
1/2 cup celery, chopped
Salt and pepper, optional
2 whole wheat pita pockets, cut in half

HELPFUL TIPS:
1) Cook extra white or brown rice. It can be stored in the refrigerator up to six days; or, the freezer for up to six months.

2) Using a non-stick skillet to brown meat and other vegetables helps reduce the need for added oil.

3) Reheat pita pockets in the microwave for about 10 to 20 seconds to soften.
