  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat Caesar dressing
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot (1 small carrot)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 whole wheat pita (pocket) breads (6 inch), cut in half to form pockets
  • 1 plum (Roma) tomato, thinly sliced

Steps

  • 1
    Set oven control to broil. Brush both sides of chicken with 1 tablespoon of the dressing; sprinkle with pepper.
  • 2
    Place chicken on rack in broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Cool about 5 minutes. Cut into thin slices.

    In medium bowl, toss lettuce, carrot and cheese with remaining dressing until coated. Fill each pita bread half with tomato and chicken; top with lettuce mixture.

  • We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.
  • Spinach is a nice substitute for the romaine, or mix spinach and romaine instead.
  • The chicken can be used warm, or you can cook it ahead of time and store it in the fridge until you make the sandwiches.
