Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches

The song “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” makes me cry.  It’s a good song, maybe even a great one.  It is a bit sad, and I relate to the sadness in different ways than Mike Posner intended, but the beautiful thing about music is that we can all find meaning in it.

More than the sadness of the song, is the memory behind it.  When Mom and I went to see Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas this summer, Mike Posner opened for them.  We missed most of his set, but arrived just in time to see his two biggest songs: “Cooler than Me” and “I Took a Pill in Ibiza.”  Since it was a hometown crowd for him, it was really something to see.

“I Took a Pill in Ibiza” is such a great song live, with the band and their tremendous talent shining.  It filled me with emotion and passion, the crowd waving their hands and singing along, the music booming through my body.  I wish I had seen the rest of his set, but those songs were the kickoff to a fabulous night.

Was it the best concert I’ve ever seen?  No, but it was a stellar night.  One I spent with my favorite person on earth, doing one of my favorite things, listening to music live.

While 2016 was not my favorite year, not even close, since it was filled with so much professional disappointment, in so many ways it was a wonderful year.  One in which I had so much fun and pushed myself to be a better person.  I have grown and changed and I can see that in myself.

That song will probably always make me cry, but I welcome those tears.  They will remind me of everything 2016 was and wasn’t and make me keep fighting for the future and more great memories.

When trying to make things happen and have fun and do all the things I want to do with life, it is sometimes a struggle to make dinner, but I still do it nearly every single night.  Easy recipes like these Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches are the perfect way to do so.

Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches

These start with pita pockets.  I used some leftovers from a dinner out, but your favorite from a restaurant will be perfect.  Then there is some rotisserie chicken, cheese, lettuce, and cranberry jam for something different, and dinner is served.  It doesn’t get easier than that!

May 2017 be full of great memories, dreams come true, and lots of homemade meals shared with the ones we love.

  1. I love sandwiches. They are the perfect go to meal.

  2. Pita pockets are a throw back to the 70s summer visits to the USA. Great choice for embracing chicken and cheese…Bravo, too, for embracing the tears. Wishing you rainbows in 2017 after the storms of 2016.

    • Thank you, Kim, that is such a beautiful sentiment. I have a sign on my vision board that says when it rains look for rainbows and when it’s dark look for stars.

  3. I’ll take mine melty! I hope 2017 brings you many blessings!!

  4. Debbie Eccard says:

    What a beautiful post! It certainly shares your sentiments so honestly. Sending you great wishes for 2017! This pita chicken and cheese sandwich is just perfect for the quick dinner that is so often a staple in our house!

  5. I’m not a big fan of chicken these days because I’m travelling across Asia and I prefer eating fresh fruits and veggies instead, but this recipe looks super yummy and I’ll try it once I’m back home, for sure!

  6. Really nice recipe. 2016 was mixed for us, too. Some really good stuff, but overall the year was kinda meh. Hoping for a much better 2017! Happy New Year!
