Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1 cup halved seedless red grapes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 6 small green leaf lettuce leaves
  • 3 (6-inch) whole wheat pita bread rounds, cut in half crosswise

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well. Gently stir in oranges.
  2. 2. Place 1 lettuce leaf in each pita pocket half. Spoon 3/4 cup chicken salad into each pita half.
  3. Note: Using fat-free mayonnaise instead of regular can help you keep your intake of fat grams down to a healthy level. But remember that even though the mayonnaise is fat-free, it still contains sodium and may need to be limited if you're on a low-sodium diet.
