Chef Devin Alexander says: Olives are a good source of vitamin E and contain beneficial fats. Thus they can make a great spread or healthy addition to a dressing or salad - as long as they're used in moderation. Here, instead of mixing chicken with mayonnaise, I mix it with an olive tapenade. Not only do you get a punch of flavor, it makes a yummy, simple chicken salad to throw into a pita.
In a small mixing bowl, toss the chicken with the tapenade. Cut one-third of the pita circle off and reserve it for another recipe. Stuff the remaining pita pocket with the chicken. Add the lettuce and tomatoes. Serve immediately, or wrap and refrigerate it until ready to enjoy.
