Prep: 20 min Bake: 4 min

Chicken Ingredients:

8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast strips
1/2 (1-ounce) envelope dry ranch salad dressing mix
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Sandwiches Ingredients:

4 (6 to 7-inch) pita fold breads
4 cups torn Romaine lettuce
1/2 cup red bell pepper strips
4 onion slices, halved, separated
1/3 cup LAND O LAKES® Sour Cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 tablespoons milk


Heat oven to 350°F. Coat chicken pieces with 2 teaspoons salad
dressing mix.

Heat oil in 8 or 10-inch skillet; add chicken pieces. Cook over
medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned
(5 to 7 minutes). Cover; continue cooking until chicken is no
longer pink (5 to 7 minutes). Uncover; cool slightly.

Meanwhile, wrap pita breads in aluminum foil. Bake for 4 to 5
minutes or until heated through.

Meanwhile, combine lettuce, red bell pepper and onions in medium
bowl.

Stir together sour cream, mayonnaise and remaining salad dressing
mix in small bowl. Stir in milk. Pour mixture over lettuce; toss
lightly. Add chicken; toss gently to coat.

Spoon chicken mixture into warm pitas. Fold in half; secure with
toothpicks, if desired.

ahead. Just before serving, place chicken mixture in microwave-
safe bowl; cover with waxed paper. Microwave on MEDIUM (50% power)
