These chicken Caesar Salad Pitas have a variety of textures. Crunchy romaine lettuce, tender flavorful chicken, yummy bacon bits and shredded parmesan cheese all come together with your favorite Caesar dressing to form one of the easiest, lightest and tastiest meals.
We eat these year round, but we especially love them in the summertime. They are fresh, light, flavorful and so easy to make. They take about 10-15 minutes from start to finish. I will often serve them with a bowl of fruit salad and my favorite lemon crinkle cookies when we have guests over in the warmer months. It makes for a quick and easy crowd pleaser.
First, wash and chop your lettuce. We love the fresh crunch of romaine, but I've used spinach, kale and mixed greens before and they work too. Put your lettuce in a large bowl.
Then grab your favorite Caesar or Italian dressing. Our favorites are Newman's Own for Caesar or Olive Garden for Italian, but anything will work- just use your favorite! Drizzle the dressing over the lettuce and stir to combine.
Next, you'll get your cooked and shredded chicken breast in a bowl. Be sure to check out an easy way to shred chicken here. I like to cook a bunch at once and stick extras in the freezer so I always have some on hand. Canned chicken also works great. Add in the spices and stir to combine.
Top the lettuce with the chicken and mix lightly- be careful to not let the chicken sink to the bottom! Stuff the mixture into a pita and top with bacon and parmesan. Whenever we have extra bacon I like to break it into little pieces and keep it in the freezer to use as bacon bits. You can buy bacon bits or break up cooked bacon for this. And there you have it!
