Chicken Caesar Pitas

This is the easiest weeknight meal recipe ever. If you can even call it a recipe, really you just assemble a few things, but these Chicken Caesar Pitas are always a hit at our house.

Chicken Caesar Pitas are a go to meal for a busy night, because you can grill the chicken the day before or during nap time if need be. It takes 5 minutes to assemble when you are ready to eat.

First marinate season the chicken with garlic powder, onion powder, and dill. Then I marinate it in Italian dressing for a few hours. Pound with a meat mallet (or your fist if you need to get out some aggression) until a little thinner.

Then grill (and yes I made this last week in the middle of a snow storm, but you could do it on a grill pan inside, or like a sane person wait til summer).

Buy a package of naan or pita bread (or make your own, which actually isn’t hard but that defeats the purpose of the easy weeknight meal thing!)

Grill that too (or if you make the chicken ahead of time you can do it on the stove in a frying pan), sprinkle with a little water while grilling, so it stays soft – if it gets too crispy you can’t fold it in half.

Fold the naan in half (like a taco shell) when done grilling.

I like to bring everything in on a big platter. Let your chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing into thin slices.

Get yourself a caesar salad kit – or some romaine lettuce and caesar salad dressing (you can make your own too, but again EASY weeknight recipe :) )


Assemble, and add more parmesan cheese.

So easy, and delicious.

  1. Well done! I laughed a little when you said you grilled in the midst of a snow storm. We’ve done that many times.. some things just taste better on the grill! This is such a great idea for a busy weeknight. You save so much time using the salad in a bag .. and then simply assembling everything.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I honestly haven’t had pita bread in probably 20 years. I’ve always looked at it in the store and wondered what to do with it. I think my kids would actually really enjoy this, so I’m going to give it a shot this weekend. Thanks for the recipe!
