Greek Salad-Stuffed Pita with Chicken and Hummus!

This is a repeat recipe, but it’s what I made for tonight’s dinner and cannot wait to sink my teeth in! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

I love this meal because you can cook the chicken ahead of time (i make mine with a little chicken broth, salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil and oregano for great flavor) or in the crock pot, shred it, then prepare the rest later. I like best it when it’s all served cold and sits for a little while to let the dressing set inπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

This was DELICIOUS and so easy to make! It will definitely be one of our regular meals from now on! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

*The only modification I made was that I shredded my chicken and cooked it with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder for flavor (I make a huge batch of chicken like this in the crock pot once a week and use it as a base for different meals and it worked perfectly for this!)
