Greek Pita Chicken Salad

This recipe is the result of a Greek pita cooking challenge.

The secret of making this so quick is to use leftover diced chicken. I like to serve a store bought rotisserie chicken one evening, then dice up the leftover for a quick meal the next day.

When making this make sure you dice your apple as chunks will not work and tip two is to use very fine bits of feta so that it blends into the dressing.
One last tip used kitchen scissors to just quickly snip the fresh rosemary into little bits.

Really hope you enjoy this as much as my DH did.
