Honey Mustard Chicken Pita Pockets

Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich

Before developing my egg sensitivity I used to love the chicken salad sandwiches my mom made my family! Now I know there’s vegan mayo out there, but I’m just not sure about them… Anybody try them? If you know a great one, please share with me! I decided to use one of my favorite homemade sauces to put a twist on the classic chicken salad sandwich.

Now, I don’t know about you but I enjoy sandwiches way more when they’re served in pita pockets, bagels, or tortillas. My favorite way to enjoy this honey mustard chicken with veggies is stuffed into a pita pocket, but my husband thinks they would be just as tasty wrapped in a tortilla.

This recipe is quick and easy, especially if you have leftover cooked chicken. It’s also a great fridge-raid recipe, as you could switch out the veggies I use for what you have sitting around.
