Chicken and Hummus Pitas: Dinner for $10
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are not only one of the most versatile meats you can serve your family, they’re also one of the most lean and heart-healthy.
One of the quickest and easiest ways to serve them is to make these delicious Chicken and Hummus Pitas for lunch or dinner. Plus, not only do you get lean protein, vegetables, and fiber, but you can serve four people for just $1.87 per serving.
Broil the chicken breasts that have been brushed with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, salt, and pepper. Then simply spread store-bought hummus (or homemade hummus) in the pocket of each pita, and stuff the pockets with chopped Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced cucumber (and any other veggies you like). A drizzle of low-fat plain yogurt inside makes a slightly tart sauce.
These hearty sandwiches make great lunches to go, too. Just pack your hummus and yogurt in separate containers and assemble them on the spot when you’re ready to eat.
