2 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1/4 cup diced water chestnuts
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 (7-inch) whole wheat pita bread round, cut in half crosswise
2 lettuce leaves


Place chicken in a medium saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, uncovered, 15 minutes or until chicken is done. Drain. Let chicken cool to touch. Chop chicken into bite-size pieces.

Combine chicken, bean sprouts, water chestnuts, and green onions. Combine vinegar, soy sauce, and oil; pour over chicken mixture, tossing gently.

Line each pita half with a lettuce leaf; spoon chicken mixture evenly into pita halves.
