Mini Chicken Basil Parmesan Pita Appetizers

Mini Chicken Basil Parmesan Pitas on a wooden board with basil and picnic basket

These Mini Chicken Basil Parmesan Pita Appetizers are the first recipe in my wine concert picnic series. I belong to Chateau St. Michelle in Woodinville, Washington. Every summer they put on concerts behind the winery. It’s one of my favorite summertime activities.  I make various appetizers and pack them away in my picnic basket and cooler. We spread a blanket on the grass, set up our short beach chairs and table, pour our glasses of wine and the party begins!  It’s so much fun listening to the concert, drinking wine and eating our picnic food.  After I joined Weight Watchers, I realized I needed to make more healthy appetizers as cheese and crackers add up too quickly.  These appetizers are healthy, portable, easy to eat and perfect for a wine concert!

These Chicken Basil Parmesan Pita Appetizers are super easy to make and definitely a crowd pleaser. You can make them as appetizers with the mini pitas or serve them as sandwiches using larger pitas or tortillas with lettuce tucked inside. Only 1 Freestyle point per 2 tablespoons of filling. No one would even guess they are healthy for you!
Weight Watchers Points: 2 T. filling equals 1 Freestyle Smart Point; If using 1 point mini pitas, each pita half with filling works out to be 1 1/2 points each or 2 halves for 3 points.
