Overstuffed Chicken Pitas With Mushrooms and Wilted Arugula

Ingredients for Overstuffed Chicken Pitas With Mushrooms and Wilted Arugula

  • 4 pita pockets

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 200 g sliced cremini mushrooms (2 cups)

  • 200 g sliced white mushrooms (2 cups)

  • 2 bunches of baby arugula (or baby spinach)

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2 cups chicken meat torn into bite-size pieces from 1 small rotisserie chicken


  1. Trim a narrow strip off one end of each pita and open the pitas with your fingers.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat until the butter stops foaming. Add the cremini mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to brown, about 5 minutes.

  3. Push the cremini to the side of the skillet and add the white mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the white mushrooms begin to brown, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir in the arugula and heat until just wilted; season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste and remove from the heat.

  5. Mix in the chicken and spoon the filling into the pitas.

  6. Serve warm.
