2 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed pita half)

Here's a tasty way to use up leftover roast chicken. Dark meat stands up to the intense flavors in the dressing. For a change, try using a wrap or naan instead of a pita.

How to Make It

Combine the first 5 ingredients, tossing well to coat. Stir in chile paste, if desired. Fill each pita half with about 1/2 cup chicken mixture, 1/4 cup bean sprouts, 1 tablespoon carrot, and 1 tablespoon cilantro.

Tastes fine but it made too much to fit into the pita bread. Had to double the amount of pita bread to remedy that. Was too much effort for the sake of a sandwich however.

These were really delicious! I used canned chicken breast instead of the thigh meat, and canned bean sprouts (don't really trust the fresh ones...). Very filling, and only 7 pts!

I made this recipe twice as I couldn't get enough the first time so I had it for lunch for a week. I thought it was very flavorful.

Quadrupled and took to a tailgating party. This was a big hit and very easy to prepare and transport.

We really enjoyed these! The only problem was the peanut satay sauce which can only last 3 days in the refrigerator once opened. Considering it costs $4 for one jar, we will probably only make these again for special occasions.

One for four in this month's issue. These were blah. I'm glad I added the chili paste, although all it did was add a slight bite to them. Otherwise they would have been tasteless. Will not make again.

Super easy and super tasty! We did add the chili paste because we like spice. Used the breast rather than the dark meat and was delish. It's a keeper!
