CHICKEN CAESAR PITA POCKETS

Do you ever just want something light yet filling for dinner?  If yes, this is the perfect meal for you and your family. It's pretty much a chicken caesar salad stuffed inside a pita pocket.  Yummy, I love the flavor of caesar dressing.  I've never tried a homemade version, but I do love the store bought kind.  The leftovers are perfect for sending in your kid's lunchbox the next day or taking to work for a light lunch.  If you want it to be a little more healthy, try wheat pitas and light caesar dressing.  Enjoy!!  
Chicken Caesar Pita Pockets
From: Jenn - Eat Cake For Dinner

Chicken breasts (One large chicken breast is enough for about 2 whole pitas or 4 pita halves)
Mrs. Dash (yellow lid)
salt and pepper
Italian seasoning
lemon pepper
pita pockets
lettuce, chopped
tomato, diced
Parmesan cheese, grated
Caesar salad dressing

Season chicken breasts with Mrs. Dash, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and a little lemon pepper.  Place in a casserole dish and cover with foil.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes - 1 hour or until no longer pink; chop when done.  Or, if you are in a hurry, you can grill the seasoned chicken breasts on the George Foreman.  Toss chopped lettuce with a little caesar dressing.  Stuff pita pockets with chopped caesar coated lettuce, chopped chicken, chopped tomato and freshly grated Parmesan.  Or stuff with all ingredients and drizzle caesar dressing over the top.
