Ranch dressing adds tangy zip to these simple, chicken pita sandwiches.


  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 3/4 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 1 Tbs dried dill weed
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup lettuce, shredded
  • 8 large pita bread halves


  • Place chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound to flatten.
  • To make sauce, combine ranch dressing and dill; set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Add mushrooms and onion; cook 3 minutes or until tender. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in pan; add chicken. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until internal juices run clear. Slice into strips.
