Ingredients:
Both breasts of a rotisserie chicken, shredded in bite size pieces, I used Sam’s Club rotisserie chicken and it was about 4 cups shredded
2 apples, chopped into bite size pieces, I used Braeburn which are large apples, if you use small or medium size, add another apple or two
3/4 cups walnuts, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 lemon, juiced*
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
3/4 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
Season to taste
Lettuce leaves or spinach leaves, optional
Sliced tomatoes, optional
Pita bread, cut in half
I love chicken salad. I also love and miss my Mom’s Waldorf Salad. I thought it would be great to combine these two. I can’t begin to tell you how tasty this was. Brilliant! I used pita bread. You can use any bread or bun or croissant you want but I truly forgot how great pita bread was. I used to eat it a long time ago and forgot how delicious it really was. If you have never tried it, go for it.
This is the pita bread I used for my sandwich. I was a little hesitant to buy this because it sounded too healthy to taste good. I was wrong. Really wrong. It’s delicious and I will buy it again.
Place shredded chicken, nuts and celery in a medium size bowl. In another bowl, juice lemon and add the chopped apple. The lemon will prevent it from turning brown and add a zesty taste. Once you have tossed your apples in the lemon juice, add the brown sugar, sour cream, mayonnaise and blend. Add this dressing/apple mixture to the the chicken mixture in the other bowl. Season to taste. Fill pita half with your Chicken Waldorf Salad. Add a lettuce leaf or spinach leaves to your pita. Enjoy!

Oh I am so glad! I really enjoyed this and it kept nicely for 4 days in my fridge. It might have kept longer but it was gone!

Nice looking chicken salad. As for the Joseph brand pitas, I’ve been eating them for about 4-5 years and they taste great.

Thank you Adam! I am embarrassed to say that I really didn’t think the pitas would be tasty but I was very surprised. They are awesome and I will keep them on my grocery list when I run out.
