  • 3/4 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 1 Tbs dried dill weed
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 4 large pita bread loaves, halved

Directions

  • Place chicken between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound to flatten.
  • To make sauce, combine ranch dressing and dill.
  • In large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add mushrooms and onion; cook 3 minutes or until tender. Remove from pan; set aside. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in pan; add chicken. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until internal juices run clear. Slice into strips.
  • Stuff pita bread halves with lettuce, chicken strips and mushroom mixture. Top with dill sauce. Serve with carrot sticks.
