How to Make Chicken Sausage Pita w/Spinach & Red Pepper

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop up 1 roasted red pepper, or just over 1/2 cup of roasted red peppers. Dice garlic fine. Slice the chicken sausages into 1/2 inch or less slices.
  2. In a pan on medium heat cook the garlic, peppers, chicken and spinach until the spinach is just starting to wilt. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Cut open a pocket in the top of each pita and carefully stuff the mixture into each pita.
  4. Note: The sausage I used was fully cooked, check the package to make sure it is fully cooked before adding the vegetables.

    I felt the recipe didn't need additional seasoning in the form of a sauce or dressing, but feel to add some to taste.

    Optional add-ins (not calculated into nutritional value) include a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese, 1/2 cup mushrooms cooked with the sausage, or some diced tomato/sun dried tomato.
