Teriyaki Chicken Pitas | Microwave DCB #recipe #realfood | MoneywiseMoms

I'm back with another recipe for the Deep Covered Baker from Pampered Chef–these yummy Teriyaki Chicken Pitas–cooked in the microwave. I have a goal this year to get a repertoire of 10 DCB recipes that I use regularly.

They will be a huge time & stress saver as we are heading into summer swim team season. We'll be at practice daily from 4-6, so I'll be prepping dinner while the kids are unpacking and showering as we come in the door.

If you don't have a DCB, you can make this is a skillet. But the point of the Deep Covered Baker is to be able to prep the food and let it cook while you're doing other things, not standing at the stove.

For an easy, stovetop one-pot meal, go try my Turkey Parmesan Pasta. And for all you mamas who have a deep covered baker sitting in the cupboard that doesn't get used (ahem–hence my goal for the year), enjoy!

 

Teriyaki Chicken Pitas

This recipe combines some of my kids' favorites: chicken, mushrooms, green bell pepper and onion.

I slice the pitas in half and stuff each with a slice of cheese before serving this to the family. They love it!
