Chicken Fajita Pocket Appetizers

Today is reveal day for the Improv Cooking Challenge, and this months ingredients are tomatoes and peppers! I love those two ingredients, don't you? They just say summer and freshness and yum! This month I made Chicken Fajita Pocket Appetizers. I know, a mouthful, right?  But, what a taste sensation, and the perfect, perfect  party food. I used these little whole wheat pita pockets, and stuffed them so full with chicken, tomatoes, peppers, onions, sour cream and guacamole. They are tasty and wonderful,  and you can just savor that summer freshness! What a treat!!
Chicken Fajitas Pocket Appetizers
1 Chicken Breast
Garlic Powder
1 Roma Tomato
1 small Onion
1 each Mini Red, Yellow, and Orange Peppers
Sour Cream
Kangaroo Itsy Bitsy Whole Wheat Pockets
Pan fry, or grill if you prefer, the chicken breast, 
sprinkled with garlic powder.
While your chicken is cooking, cut your peppers,
and take the seeds out. 
Cut the peppers into small, thin strips. The peppers
have to fit in the mini pockets, so they should be small in length,
but they will shrink some while cooking.
Cut your onions the same way as the peppers.
Chop your tomatoes.
Make your guacamole, by smashing your avocado....
add a 1-2 tablespoons of sour cream, 
and a few of your chopped tomatoes.
Add some garlic powder. Mix well.
Finish cooking your chicken.
Sautee your peppers and onions in a pan.
Shred lettuce, and place in the bottom of the mini pocket.
Top with a couple pieces of chicken.
Add peppers, onions,
sour cream,
and avocado.
Serve to all your friends! They will love them!

  4. Brilliant idea putting the fajita ingredients in a pita...wonder why I've never thought of that. Looks amazingly delicious too, great entry.

  5. I am a huge sandwich eater. This sandwich sounds like something I would like. I am not a big avocado eater, but love the other features. I haven't had pita bread for a long time, sounds delightful.


  6. I love pita bread for sandwiches because of their natural pockets and also because they are thin. I am not a big bread person. I think pitas allow for a better filling/bread ratio. These sandwiches have a fantastic filling/bread ratio! You just keep heaping it in and I love that!

  7. THose would be a huge crowd pleaser at my house. I love how colorful they turned out.

  8. Wow call these an appetizer but I could eat a couple three of these for lunch! These look delish! Tomatoes and peppers so perfect together, but nestled into the pita all covered with sour cream and avocado...these look amazing! : )

  9. I love this idea, Teri! My hubby would be hovering over the serving dish if I made these for a party :) Now to find those cute mini pitas :)

  10. Wow!! They are too good to be just appetizers! A great party pleaser for sure :))

    I have awarded you 'one lovely blog' award. Please check it out when you can.

  11. Mmmmm these look so yummy. I love anything in a pita! Thanks for sharing at Church Supper. Have a blessed week & come back soon ~EMM

  12. Oh my, this looks SO good! Seriously, this is totally something I could see myself eating. Thanks for sharing! New follower here. Yay for being blog friends!! Feel free to drop by and say hi!

  13. Question do they really stand up by them selves? I know who cares that dose not effect the taste but I have seen this idea on lot of pages and I am just wondering do they really stand up by them selves.
