There’s nothing I love more than delicious pita pockets packed with flavorful ingredients!
These Caribbean Pita Pockets are full of flavor from the Tequila Lime Grilled Chicken to the sweet and tangy mandarin oranges and pineapple!
This is a simple recipe, that’s perfect for lunch or dinner during the week!
- 2 pieces of pita bread
- 4 large leafs of butter lettuce
- 2 tequila lime chicken breasts (recipe below)
- 1 cup mandarin oranges
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 1/2 red bell pepper (chopped)
- 1 small tomato (chopped)
- 1/2 cup honey lime dressing
Ingredients (Tequila Lime Chicken)
- ½ cup tequila
- ½ cup lime juice
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
- 1 lb chicken breasts
Place the first 5 ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk well.
Add the chicken to the marinade.
Marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator then grill over medium-high heat for 20 minutes, flipping half way through grilling.
Slice the chicken, then begin to put the pita pockets together.
Slice each pita bread in half, then place a leaf of butter lettuce in each half of pita bread, followed by the chicken, then top with the mandarin oranges, pineapple, bell pepper and tomatoes.
Drizzle with the Honey Lime Dressing.
I could honestly put that dressing on anything and love it, but luckily for me… and you… the rest of this pita is totally amazing too!
