Equipment

  • skillet

Ingredients
  

  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 8 oz container of baby bella mushrooms
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 1 cup of diced pineapple
  • 3 tbsp of Jerk Seasoning
  • 5 oz container of spinach
  • 2 tbsp of liquid jerk marinade
  • Equal parts basil pesto and mayo
  • 4- pack naan or pita bread

Instructions
 

  • Start by cooking your chicken. You have multiple options here, but if you don't have chicken breast that are already cooked, then my go-to is the grill. Grill up 1 chicken breast sliced in half lengthwise.
  • While the chicken is cooking, get all of the veggies/fruit chopped up. You need to slice up an 8 oz container of baby bella mushrooms, a green pepper, 2 roma tomatoes, and 1 cup of diced pineapple.
  • In a skillet, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil and start saut√©ing your peppers and mushrooms over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Once the chicken is cooked, slice and added to the cooked peppers and mushrooms.
  • After about 1 minute, add 3 tbsp of Jerk Seasoning.
  • Next add in a 5 oz container of spinach. After it starts to wilt down, I add the sliced tomato and diced pineapple bits.
  • Next add 2 tbsp of liquid jerk marinade.
  • For the pita bases, mix equal parts mayo and basil pesto.
  • We typically use Naan bread for this recipe because it's the closest thing we have found to the pitas at Mellow Mushroom, but feel free to use pitas!
  • Spread the basil pesto mayo on the pita and then top each with the chicken and veggie mixture.
  • Lastly, you sprinkle with feta cheese and dig in! I promise you that these will not disappoint!
