Made with a convenient blend of Success Garden and Grains™ White Rice, Peas, Carrot & Red Bell Peppers, the filling for these Mediterranean-inspired pita bowls is easier than ever.
Prepare rice according to package directions. Preheat oven to 425°F.
Wrap pita in damp paper towels and microwave for 30 seconds to soften. Lightly coat both side of each pita bread with non-stick cooking spray. Press pitas into oven-proof bowls or cups to form bowl shape. Place on a baking sheet and bake 20 minutes, or until pitas begin to crisp.
In small bowl combine tahini, lemon juice, water and ½ teaspoon garlic. Stir until smooth. Reserve.
Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onions and remaining garlic and sauté 1 minute. Add za’atar, chicken and rice. Continue to sauté 2 minutes.
Fill pita bowls with rice mixture and drizzle with tahini sauce. Serve with lemon wedges.
Substitute whole wheat tortillas for the pita or skip the baking and just serve with pita chips.
If you can’t find Success Garden & Grains blends near you, you can substitute Success White Rice and a 1 cup of fresh or frozen Asian blend (peas, carrots, red bell pepper) vegetables. No need to thaw or precook. Just add to water in the last 3-5 minutes of preparation.
