Chicken Pitas with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette

Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Pitas are stuffed with mixed baby greens, shredded chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, and Asiago cheese. I don’t know about you, but I am have never been so ready for spring! With all of this snow and ice that we have been slammed with this winter, I am counting down the days to spring break so I can sink my toes in the sand! Unfortunately, that is still 49 days away (I told you I was counting down! :)) So in the meantime, I have been enjoying these pita sandwiches to get us through the terrible winter. These chicken pitas are delicious, quick, easy and light! I just love it when I find delicious Cooking Light recipes! 🙂

We loved this recipe so much that we ate these two days in a row. Using the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes to prepare the vinaigrette for this zesty sandwich couldn’t be easier.
