Back to school is just around the corner, if your kids haven’t started already. That means it is time to start packing school lunches again and time to think about what I’m going to eat for my midday meal while the kids are at school.
Something I have been doing lately is grilling chicken ahead of time and keeping it in the fridge for a couple of days to use in various easy lunch meals. I’ve also been stocking the kitchen with pita pockets because I’ve discovered how much I like a “sandwich” stuffed inside pita bread as opposed to regular sandwich bread all of the time.
Pita pocket recipes, like these Grilled Chicken Greek Pita Pockets, are perfect for moms to enjoy at home for lunch while the kids are at school. I love this recipe because most of the ingredients are usually on hand in my pantry or refrigerator.
Grilled Chicken Greek Pita Pockets take almost no time to prepare, especially if you grill the chicken ahead of time. Then, stuff the chicken along with artichoke hearts, baby spinach, cucumber, kalamata olives, roasted red peppers, and feta cheese. Then drizzle with Marzetti®Simply Dressed® Greek Feta Salad Dressing.
So moms, while the kids are away at school, treat yourself to something a little extra special at lunch time and enjoy a few minutes of peace and quiet.

Grilled Chicken Greek Pita Pockets
The amount of each ingredient you use is up to you. Use as little or as much of the listed veggies as you would like.
2 boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts

Artichoke Hearts, quartered
Roasted Red Peppers, cut into strips
Marzetti®Simply Dressed® Greek Feta Salad Dressing

Pour the Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Lemon Vinaigrette over the chicken in a zip top bag and marinade the chicken for 4-6 hours, or overnight. Drain the chicken from the marinade. Grill the chicken over medium heat until done, turning part way through. Allow to cool, and then slice.

Mexican food is constantly in rotation at our house, so I need to keep this Spicy Taco Seasoning on hand at all times! I make it in bulk, so I am not constantly having to whip it up before the meal. I think you’re going to be wanting it on hand too! Written by: Carla [...]
Summer is almost over. I seriously cannot believe it. The time just went by way too fast this summer. Now that it is August, back to school and all that is required to get ready for the new school year (and the start of a new soccer season) has been on my mind. And the [...]

I cheer when it’s finally peach season again. I stalk the farm stands starting mid-July on the off chance there are early peaches available for me to buy. It feels like winning the lottery when I find those early peaches. And then in a few weeks we are overloaded with peaches at every corner, and [...]
This post brought to you by Silk. All opinions are 100% mine. Almond Milk has been my preferred “milk” for several years now. I love it on a bowl of granola and it makes a great addition to smoothie recipes, like this household favorite of ours – Pineapple Apple Kale (or Spinach) Smoothie. Almond Milk [...]
