This Red Pit recipe from the Silva kitchen is easy to make and well balanced. This recipe goes in the fridge to be pulled out at any time for a convenient and nutritious meal!

•    2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
•    1 cup green grapes, halved
•    1/2 cup chopped pecans
•    8 lettuce leaves
•    4 pita breads, halved and warmed
•    1/2 cup mayonnaise
•    1 tbsp. honey
•    1 tsp. curry powder

In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, honey and curry powder. Stir in chicken, grapes and pecans. Line pita halves with lettuce; spoon one-half cup of chicken mixture into each. Yields four servings.

Once ready, the chicken mixture can be regrigerated for up to a few days, making snacktime and mealtime quick and healthy! We hope you enjoy it as much our family does.
