Mango salsa
  • 1/2 fresh mango, skin removed, finely diced (fresh peaches or nectarines would also be delicious)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup sliced pickled jalapeños
Chicken pitas
  • 4 tablespoon sour cream
  • 2 pita breads or Lebanese breads
  • cheddar cheese, sliced very thinly or grated
  • fresh coriander leaves
  • 3/4 cup cooked chicken, pulled into even-sized pieces
  • ground chilli, to season (optional)


  • 1
    Combine all mango salsa ingredients in a medium bowl and lightly toss.
  • 2
    Spread sour cream across half the pita bread and lay cheese slices across the other half. Add a large handful of coriander leaves, top with a handful of chicken and mango salsa, and sprinkle with chilli, if desired.
  • 3
    Fold the pita in half to eat – just like a taco.


You can substitute canned tuna for the chicken if you wish.
