Chicken Pita Pocket with Tahini Garlic Sauce

I don’t know about you, but I often find myself scrambling for a delicious and healthy last minute dinner. And no… If you’re anything like me, and you don’t like to always meal prep, I’m sure you know the struggle.With just a quick stop at the grocery store on your way back home, you’ll be able to create a delicious, healthy and filling meal in under 10 minutes!
Sometimes I make hummus from scratch and other times I use prepared hummus; My fave is Habibi’s hummus (#partner). If you have more time or plan ahead, you could make the roast chicken and the hummus in advanced. Thay way, you don’t have to make a stop at the grocery store; It will be in your fridge and ready to be prepared into a quick meal on a hectic day.
I often make this quick and easy-peasy Roast Chicken Pita Pocket with Tahini Garlic Sauce – which I also included in one of my summer cooking camps for kids (Nature’s Kitchen Camp).
In Lebanon, you’ll often find a Tahini Garlic Sauce used in a lot of sandwiches, including beef shawarma & falafels. I use it in this pita wrap, and the leftovers (if you have any!) can be stored in the fridge and used in so many different dishes such as salads, grain bowls, and drizzled on top of roast veggies and sauteed kale. It’s also quite easily turned into a salad dressing.
For vegetables (not pictured), I usually make a coleslaw salad with yogurt dressing, or a green salad with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and a lemon/garlic dressing.
Enjoy!
