Chicken Caesar Pitas

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried rosemary

3 slices bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

Butter flavored cooking spray

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1/2 pound bacon

1 large head romaine lettuce leaves, torn into bite size pieces

1 (8 ounce) bottle bottled Caesar salad dressing

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese to taste

Salt and black pepper to taste

1 (10 ounce) package (6-inch) pocket pita bread, halved


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Place chicken in a saucepan with garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary; add water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat medium-low, cover, and simmer until chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Remove chicken, let cool, and cut into strips.

Meanwhile, place bread cubes on a baking sheet. Spray with butter spray; sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley.

Bake bread cubes in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Turn cubes; spray again with butter spray and sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes until golden brown and crunchy. Remove croutons, and let cool.

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly browned and crispy. Remove bacon from skillet, drain on paper towels and crumble.

Combine chicken, bacon, lettuce, and croutons in a large bowl. Toss with Caesar salad dressing and Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss again. Spoon salad mixture into pita bread halves.
