An irresistible and light peanut sauce is mixed with chicken and vegetables, and tucked in a pita pocket to make a fantastic sandwich!

Friday nights are liberating for so many reasons. First of all, it’s Friday. Need I say more? More importantly, I don’t have to think about dinner for one minute. That’s because Friday means pizza night. It’s a family tradition that eliminates the five o’clock conundrum of “What am I going to make for dinner?”


Sometimes we take it easy on ourselves and stick with pepperoni. Other times we pull out all the stops and whip up Grilled Shrimp & Pesto Pizzas or our all-time favorite, Thai Chicken Pizza, either on naan bread (if I’m feeling particularly lazy) or regular pizza dough.

But let’s be honest here…the Thai chicken pizza is really all about the sauce. Creamy, flavorful peanut sauce. Our go-to recipe for peanut sauce is an adaptation of a long-ago Cooking Light Magazine recipe, so it’s lighter than most peanut sauce recipes out there.

Since the sauce is lick-your-fingers, taste-and-go-to-heaven fantastic, why limit it to pizza and soba noodles (one of our favorite make-ahead meals)? This time, I mixed some shredded rotisserie chicken with vegetables and a good dose of the peanut sauce, and tucked it all inside of pita pockets. Now that’s how you do a sandwich!

I’m in love with these Dara! Seriously though you throw peanut sauce on anything and I’m pretty much down :) Pinned!

I don’t think I (or my health) can take another Friday night of pizza. I will have to give this a try today for dinner! Thanks so much for inspiring me to eat healthier.

This is really a great combination, Dara. I love recipes like this. Fridays are one of my favorite days of the week, love the peanut sauce.

Oh my gosh I recently made Thai peanut sauce and I am telling you, I could have eaten a dead mouse if it was smothered in that sauce!!

This could just be a delicious Thai Chicken Salad too for those who wanted to skip the pita (like my mom) :). Thank-you for the delicious recipe I will try and make this Friday.
