Chicken Taco Pizza

Tonight was the first night that I made a meal on the weeknight that wasnt Nutrisystem. For me, this is a HUGE deal. It's kind of hard to explain. Regardless, big step. And I ate about 45 minutes ago & Im still, which is another huge step for me.

These were so fast to make, ideal for a weeknight when you're exhausted from the day's work and/or lack of sleep.

Yields 4 pizzas.
248 calories per pizza.
Recipe from Better Homes Test Kitchen.

2 pita rounds, split horizontally
1 tsp olive oil
10 oz canned chicken, drained
1/4 c salsa
1 c shredded cheddar cheese, reduced fat
lettuce, shredded

Preheat oven to 425.

Place pita bread pieces, cut side up, on baking sheet.
Lightly brush with olive oil.
Bake for 4 minutes until crisp.

In a small bowl, mix chicken & salsa.
Spoon evenly over pita pieces.
Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 5 minutes & remove from oven.
Top with lettuce & a small dollop of low fat sour cream.

Cutting the pita rounds was a bit of a challenge because they're so thin to begin with. Really, it just takes patience.

These are so filling. I had dinner about an hour ago & Im still full, which is pretty unheard of for me. ANOTHER MILESTONE.
