Feta-dill chicken salad in pita pockets

Faithful, long-time blog readers may recall a certain $6 Snack post I wrote that featured hummus from Aladdin’s in Akron, Ohio. Hummus is my favorite appetizer to order whenever I’m home and in the Aladdin’s neighborhood. But the chicken salad pocket is my favorite entree. It has a distinctly Mediterranean taste to it — from what I guess to be feta, lemon and tahini. Toasted almonds are nice touch, too. Here’s my attempt at recreating the chicken salad, and I think it’s a close match.

Quinoa and black beans with pomegranate salsa

This dish was the direct result of being forced to stay indoors for about three days straight and NOT wanting to spend those days in a pasta coma.

I tend to go a little carbohydrate crazy, and every once in a while I need a meal that will fill me up, but without any breads or pastas or what have you. I almost always turn to quinoa in these instances, which is high in protein and is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus.

When I initially bookmarked this recipe, I thought the result would be something a bit more like what one of my favorite recipes serves. Sadly, it was not. But it was still pretty delicious! I added the feta aspect, which I think really helped kick it up.
