Now uni has pretty much finished for summer apart from a couple of pieces of coursework I’m struggling to find things to do with my day that don’t involve spending money…seeing as I have none. I’m staying in glasgow until my birthday and then heading home, which means I have just over a month to find things to do to keep me occupied…and there’s only so many times you can clean your room in a week! Just can’t wait to move into the new flat so i can spend my time cooking and freeze everything…it’s impossible in a shared kitchen which is covered in crumbs/mould/spilt drink most of the time…
But tonight I made a dinner of leftovers (for once) which actually turned out pretty nice – so thought I’d share (didn’t get a photo though, sorry!)
Spicy chicken and salad pitta bread pockets
Costs: Really depends what you use – chicken breast is always going to be more expensive than thighs or wings, but you can really use anything you want – i just used chicken because it was taking up room in the freezer! pitta breads and salad are really cheap though.
Suitable for freezing?: Nope, but you can of course freeze the chicken and pitta breads before you make the dish
Perfect for: Summer lunches/dinners
You will need:
- 1 chicken breast or whatever meat you’re using
- 1 pitta bread, a large one so you can cut it open easily and fill it
- salad leaves, tomatos, onions, whatever you want
- some kind of sauce – i just used a cheap tomato and herb one which was slightly spicy too, use whatever
- anything else – shove whatever in there – within reason
Cut the chicken into small chunks (if you’re using an onion – i did – slice it now, too) – fry both off in a pan with a little oil.
