5-Minute Lunch: Chicken Cucumber Pita Pocket

Voila! The 5-Minute Lunch: Chicken Cucumber Pita Pocket.

This recipe takes about as much time as it would to reheat last night’s dinner, while also packing nutrition and protein inside for insta-nourishment (you can stop letting your growling stomach be a distraction during your biology lecture).  Whoops, looks like I just took away your “there’s not enough time to make lunch so time for leftover pizza” excuse. And I’m not sorry about it.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: NONE!
Total Time:  10 minutes

Servings: 1 pita

Ingredients:
1 whole-wheat pita pocket
½ grilled chicken breast (cut into strips)
Cucumber (sliced)
2 tablespoons cucumber or dill dressing

To make your own dressing:

¼ cup light sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh dill (minced)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
