Chipotle Chicken Salad Pockets


How was everyone's 4th? Did you all eat enough for 10 people? I know I did. Speaking of food let me just tell you how good this chicken salad is. I'm not much of one for super spicy but this has just the right amount of kick. Not to spicy yet not to weak.




A nice twist on traditional chicken salad. Delicious chicken mixed, with creamy chiptole lime mayo and cilantro, and then stuffed into a pita pocket with cool crisp lettuce. Nom Noms!

Ingredients
1 whole Rotisserie Chicken, chilled
1 Celery Stalk, diced small
1/4 cup finely diced Red Onion
1/4 cup roughly chopped Fresh Cilantro
2 Chipotle Peppers in Adobo, finely minced
2 teaspoons Adobo Sauce
1/2 cup Mayo, plus more if needed
1 tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice 
Kosher Salt and Black Pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Whole Wheat Pita Pockets
Lettuce

Directions
After chicken has cooled, remove both light and dark meat and shred into a large bowl.

To the chicken add; finely diced celery, red onion, chopped cilantro.

In a small bowl combine the minced chipotles, the adobo sauce, mayo, lime juice, kosher salt and black pepper. Stir to combine and taste to check for seasoning.

Pour the chipotle-lime-mayo over the shredded chicken, celery, ans onion and toss to coat evenly.

Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve inside pita pockets with lettuce.
