Curried Chicken Pita With Cranberries & Pear

Curried Chicken Pita with Cranberries & Pear

This was such a delicious addition to my lunch rotation!  I loved having something different and something new.  The chicken salad came together in a jiffy and I love how the curry goes so well with the sweetness of the cranberries and pear.  This lunch got me a little excited for fall to make an appearance (although I am still not ready to let summer go) thanks to those delicious cranberries and pear! To assist in making this EVEN EASIER to make than it already is, I used the packaged grilled chicken that already comes cooked.  I diced it up and had this yummy pita to eat in less than 5 minutes.

If you’re looking for a new lunch idea, throw this one in the mix.  It’s pretty darn tasty!
