Creamy Chicken Salad Pitas

Roasted whole chickens are a great, easy meal to prepare for dinner, but they can also provide endless lunch opportunities the following day. Making these delicious poppy seed chicken pitas are the perfect way to give yourself some protein during a busy work day. In fact, we’re almost positive you could handle one and still get some work done while you eat. The sweetness from the apricots (which could also be swapped out for dried cranberries or goji berries) and the crunch from the celery make it a well-balanced meal for those with a sweet and savory tooth.
