  • 4 4 oz. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 med celery stalks finely diced
  • 1/2 med red onion finely diced
  • 1 granny smith apple diced
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro
  • 1 c. plain greek yogurt
  • 3 whole wheat pita pockets


  1. In a large pan on medium-high, cook chicken until white and no longer pink (you can also grill your meat, which is what I chose to do). Once cooked and cooled, cut in to 1/2 in. cubes.
  2. Mix together chicken, diced celery, onion, and apple, along with cilantro and yogurt. Chill 15-30 minutes or until ready to serve. Scoop chicken salad mixture into pita pocket halves and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
You don't have to use chicken thighs, you can of course use chicken breasts as well. I prefer the thighs because I have found them to be juicier and more flavorful.
