These simple stuffed pitas are perfect for the weeknight rush. Grilled chicken and store-bought hummus never tasted so great.

Talk about delicious! This protein-packed sandwich is a breeze to make and is a perfect option for the weekday brown bag lunch or a fast dinner. We used plain hummus but get creative by using your favorite flavor — garlic, lemon and even spicy. This is one delicious stuffed sandwich option.
