People can be weird about their chicken salad, I personally don't care for fruit or nuts in mine, but you can totally add them to this recipe if you wish. You could add a little curry powder and it would change the whole flavor profile, yumm, I love curry! Cilantro can also be added giving it a fresh bold flavor. So really, this is a make your own kind of chicken salad, I'm just giving you the basics.
1 Rotisserie chicken, torn into bite size pieces
2 tsp white vinegar
A little less than a 1/2 cup of fat free half and half ( if you feel like the salad is dry, add more)
3/4 cup mayonnaise ( you can go off the reservation and use reduced fat or fat free mayo)
5 stalks celery, chopped
1/3 cup red onion, chopped
2 tsp cumin (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl combine torn chicken and celery and red onion. In a separate bowl whisk together mayo, half and half, vinegar and pepper. Pour over the chicken mixture and mix well. Taste at this point and determine how much salt and pepper you want, I like a lot of pepper in mine. Chill until serving time.
Place 1/2 cup chicken salad into each lettuce lined pita pocket.
