Nutty Chicken Pita Sandwiches

When company is coming for lunch, this is my favorite sandwich to make, since it looks and tastes a bit fancy. Even kids like it because of the crunchy nuts and creamy filling. -Glenda Schwarz, Morden, Manitoba

    I've been making these forever. They are delicious, quick and great for picnics! To make things go even quicker, occasionally I'll use a rotisserie chicken from the store :)
