Megan Turnmire, the Cherokee County Extension Agent, stopped by KETK to chat with Bob and Jen.

Here's the recipe for the Chicken Salad Pita with Yogurt Sauce:

1/2 cup red seedless grapes, halved if large
1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken breast
1 celery rib, trimmed and chopped
2 1/2 Tablespoons plain fat-free Greek-style yogurt
2 Tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 whole wheat pitas, cut in half
4 pieces leaf lettuce
1 Tablespoon sliced almonds
Combine grapes, chicken, and celery in medium bowl. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise,
chili powder, curry powder, salt and pepper in cup. Stir well. Spoon over chicken mixture
and add in sliced almonds; stir again. Split each pita half open and line with a lettuce
leaf. Spoon ½ cup chicken mixture into each pita half.
