Indian Chicken Salad Pockets

Indian Chicken Salad Pockets
Mitch Mandel

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon  low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 Teaspoon  lime juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  curry paste
  • 3/4 Cups  (4 ounces) chopped grilled chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon  seeded, chopped cucumber
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon  chopped red onion
  •   One 6 1/2-inch whole-wheat pita, halved
  • leaves green leaf lettuce

I’m a big fan of mixing low-fat mayonnaise with stronger flavors to give it the richness of a full-fat mayonnaise. Here, I’ve coupled low-fat mayonnaise with curry paste, which is found in the international foods aisle in most major grocery stores. Just be sure you don’t go crazy with these pastes in other dishes — most are insanely full of fat and sodium. But they also have very strong flavor, so in a dish like this — where 1/2 teaspoon does it — I absolutely love them and I suspect you will, too.
