Chicken pit­tas

Runner's World (UK) - - The Fit Food Handbook -

PER­FECT FOR RE­COV­ERY, this mix of carbs and pro­tein bursts with flavour. Sun-dried toma­toes are a con­cen­trated source of ly­copene, an an­tiox­i­dant that has been shown to re­duce the risk of cer­tain can­cers, while the oil adds healthy fat and helps to give the spread a smooth, rich con­sis­tency.

In a food pro­ces­sor, com­bine the toma­toes, half of the red pep­pers, two ta­ble­spoons of wa­ter, gar­lic, wal­nuts, mint, oregano, cayenne and salt to taste. Process un­til smooth, scrap­ing down the bowl as nec­es­sary. If the spread is too thick, add more wa­ter, a tea­spoon at a time.

Place a ta­ble­spoon of the tomato spread in each pitta half. Stuff each pitta with an equal amount of the chicken, rocket, av­o­cado and re­main­ing red pep­per. NUTRI­TION PER SERV­ING Kcals 382, Carbs 43g, Pro­tein 26g, Fat 13g

Chicken is packed with pro­tein, which you need to re­pair and re­build mus­cles af­ter a hard run.
