Greek Chicken Stuffed Pitas

I’m experiencing a serious case of writers block. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s my upcoming girls weekend in Palm Springs that I can’t stop dreaming about, or maybe it’s because I just ate 1/2 a block of colby jack cheese. I don’t know what it is, but writers block sucks. Big time.

So what is there to do? Well, cook obviously! It’s the answer to most of my problems. And this time my answer was extremely delicious, easy and light. Greek Chicken Stuffed Pitas are the new go-to dinner in my house. They just require a few ingredients like a rotisserie chicken (which you could easily buy at the market or make at home) some avocado (obviously) a few pieces of red onion and some tzatziki sauce. Easy as that really! Oh and some pita bread. Can’t forget about that.

I feel like this is totally something my mom used to make us as kids – so it totally pleases a crowd. Plus it has avocado and who can turn down anything with avocado. I mean if you don’t like avocado, are you even human? Those people don’t make sense to me.

But these, these make sense to me. Side note – I’ve been making batches of tzatziki in bulk every week – like a big container worth – and using it for just about everything. It’s such a versatile sauce that we should all incorporate it into our lives a little more!
