“Found at the biggirlssmallkitchen website, this easy-fix & sure-to-be-tasty sandwich was featured by Kelsey Brown in a “Brown Baggin’ It” article primarily directed at college students & the working masses who dine in “Break Rooms” more often than not. Kelsey said: “Make your fellow students or co-workers jealous when they’re unwrapping their frozen “diet” entrées & you whip out this fresh, light & flavorful Moroccan Chicken Salad Sandwich in Pita Bread.” Do not be intimidated by what may appear to be a complex set of ingredients. The ingredients are simple & the rest is a matter of spicing. Ingredient prep & assembly time was estimated. There was no cook time since the recipe begins w/pre-cooked chicken. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a med-sized bowl, combine chicken w/onion, herbs, olives & raisins. In a larger bowl, combine orange juice w/olive oil, garlic & spices. Stir vigorously.
  2. Add chicken mixture to the liquids & stir to coat. Do a taste test. If too dry or not enough “kick”, adjust spices &/or olive oil to taste.
  3. Cut 1 pita bread round down the middle & open gently to fill. Smear inside walls w/mayo (or avocado) & stuff lightly w/lettuce. Fill ea of the 2 pita halves w/approx 1/6 of the chicken mixture & wrap them in foil. 2/3 of the meat mixture should be left for 2 more dys of pita sandwiches.
