Our chef demonstrates how to prepare this recipe.

Hello everyone. Thank you for joining us today.

Today, we're going to be making a chicken and feta salad-stuffed pita. We'll be starting off with some frozen, diced chicken, a little bit easier to use the already frozen cooked product. The idea behind this recipe is making it fast and quick in your kitchen at home. We use a frozen, prepacked, sorted peas, a little bit of diced tomato, little bit of Feta cheese, some diced green onion. Today, we're using a low-fat Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt's got a little bit extra protein in it. Little bit of probiotics makes it a little bit healthier for the gut. And a little bit of dill for that seasoning.

And we're going to mix all this together. And what we do is we take a full pita round, slice it in half, slice it open, stuff it with your favorite greens. Today, we're using a Tuscan mix. When that's all said and done, you get a nice little mixed product. Here is our finished product. Our pita's stuffed with our chicken and feta salad, fresh greens. Happy healthy eating!
