Snappy dinner ready in 15 minutes! Enjoy these Asian-inspired chicken pockets with flavors of orange and almonds.

Ingredients

1
cup chopped cooked chicken
1
(11-oz.) can mandarin orange segments, well drained
1/2
cup chopped celery
1/4
cup sliced almonds, if desired
2
green onions, sliced
3
tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4
teaspoon salt
Dash pepper
3
(6-inch) pita (pocket) breads, cut in half
6
lettuce leaves

Directions

  • 1 In medium bowl, combine all ingredients except pita breads and lettuce leaves; mix well.
  • 2 Line each pita bread half with lettuce leaf; fill with 1/3 cup chicken mixture.
Tips  

Substitute one cup of halved seedless grapes for the mandarian orange segments.

Prepare the filling up to a day ahead and refrigerate it. Add the almonds and lettuce just before serving time to prevent them from getting soggy.
