Tomato Basil Pita Pocket

The best part of working in television is the fact that it keeps me busy. But, it doesn't mean I've forgotten those who follow this blog. I've had some time to develop some great new recipes and this one is perfect for any season.

All you need are your taste buds and appetite, and you'll have the perfect snack or lunch for you or your family.

Tomato Basil Pita Pocket Ingredients
 - 1 pkg. of whole wheat pitas
 - 1 Red pepper
 - Mozzarella cheese
 - Cubed chicken
 - Alfredo sauce ( I used Ragu Red Pepper Alfredo)
- Tomato
 - Basil
 - Oregano
 - Parsley


Start by cooking your chicken in a medium sized pan. Once that's done, cut your red pepper into slices and saute them. 

Then, take a pita and put it on a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. This will keep the pita from sticking. Season each side with oregano, parsley and basil. Feel free to use as much as you would like. 


After that, spread the Alfredo sauce across the pita. Now, put the cubed chicken on top and  feel free to use enough to cover the pita. Finally, add the red peppers and mozzarella cheese. 

Preheat the oven at 325 degrees, fold the pita pocket and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Then, take a bite of ooey-gooey goodness that will fill your stomach with happiness.
