Indian Spiced Chicken Pitas

A "clean" recipe.  Jeremy wasn't a huge fan.  I thought they were ok.

  • 6 small whole wheat pita's (80 calories each), or you can use larger pitas
  • 1 lb chicken tenderloins
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala, OR make your own with:  cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and ginger (to taste).
  • 1 cup broccoli slaw
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt (fat free)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • shredded romaine lettuce, optional
  1. Preheat indoor/Foreman grill to medium-high or position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with  garam masala.  Cook chicken until no longer pick: 4 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the size.. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine broccoli slaw, yogurt, cilantr, lemon juice, a little more garam masala and 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. 
  4. Thinly slice the chicken, and split open the warm pitas and fill with the chicken, yogurt mixture, and lettuce (if using).
