Curried Chicken Pita Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Curried Chicken Pitas

I've always hated the end of August. The weather is inevitably gorgeous, but you can't enjoy it because you have to go back to school or work. In times like these, one shouldn't be bothered with long, complicated cooking preparations. Instead, use leftover chicken or precooked breasts from the store to throw together a quick chicken salad. To make the standby more exciting, stir in curry powder and stuff inside a pita half. This recipe is highly adaptable; use whatever dried fruit and crunchy vegetables float your fancy. Just be sure to keep things simple.
