Chicken & Fresh Veggies Pita Wraps



Instead of having high carbo food like rice and noodles, I'm looking for other alternatives which contain low carbo, but high in protein and vitamins. Pita wrap may be a good choice? I am practicing to include more fresh veggies rather than cooked veggies in our healthy daily diet. In this way, the nutrients and vitamins will be retained and will be easier to be absorbed by our body.

Pita wraps are easy to make with your favorite choice of fillings. I learned that Turkey breast contains the lowest fat in the Biggest Loser television program. Unfortunately I don't have Turkey breast, so I just substituted my pita with chicken breast. I also bought some green coral from Tesco as one of the ingredient. Unlike lettuce, coral veggie tastes sweeter and crunchier without a hint of bitterness.

The pita wraps taste like burger without cheese. It's definitely a healthier version with all the fresh ingredients. :)

Chicken & Fresh Veggies Pita Wrap
Serves 2

Ingredients:



3 herbs pita (2 for him, and one for me)
3 Omega-3 eggs
1 tomato, washed and thinly sliced
half Japanese cucumber, skinned and thinly sliced
some green corals, washed and drained
1 chicken breast, skinned and fat removed

Seasoning:

dash of grounded black pepper
dash of sea salt
2 tbsp BBQ sauce
3 tbsp Thousand Island dressing

Methods:

1. Half the chicken breast. Thinly slice each of it into 2. You'll get 4 pieces of thin chicken breast pieces. Lay all of them on chopper board, and use the back of a knife to lightly chop across the chicken breast. Repeat for the bottom surface. Season the chicken with a dash of salt and black pepper. Marinate with BBQ sauce and left it for at least 30 minutes.

2. Heat some extra virgin olive oil in a non stick pan and fry 3 eggs. Hold the egg into half.

3. In the same pan, heat some extra virgin olive oil. Pan fry the chicken breast until both sides turned golden brown.

4. Cut off 2 cm from the edge of each pita. Fill up each of them with pan fried chicken breast, an egg, some green corals, tomato and cucumber slices and top with Thousand Island dressing.
