Quick and Easy Recipe: Pineapple Chicken Salad

I've been failing pretty miserably in the kitchen lately... I'm good for maybe 1 dinner a week.. and I pray that the leftovers will last Dave the rest of the week. (I'm more of a snacker at dinner time) So I've been trying to get outta that habit and looking for quick and easy (and tasty) recipes - here's what's good so far:

Pineapple Chicken Salad Pitas - these totally remind me of Pita Pitt in college! They were a-mah-zing 

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup matchstick-cut carrots
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, drained
  • 4 (6-inch) whole wheat pitas, each cut in half
  • 8 Romaine lettuce leaves 
Mix everything together except the Pita and Romain lettuce, line each pita with a romaine lettuce leaf and stuff it full of the mixture. Done! Enjoy!

When you take your first bite you'll be like SO happy!
Then you'll be all - hell yeah babe! I cooked!

So what about you guys? Got any quick and easy meals for me to add to my ever-growing 1 dinner a week plan?
(ps - if you haven't ever seen Happy Endings - do yourself a favor and get caught up on Hulu now! The new season starts up at the end of March!)
