My family has been on a quest to eat healthier lately, and I came across these two recipes that seemed to have a little bit of a healthier edge than what we usually eat. I mean wraps are healthy right? Pita chips have got to be better than regular potato chips right? I think so.
I am a huge fan of wraps and sandwiches, my husband not so much. But when I saw these Chicken Cordon Bleu Ranch Wraps, I thought this would be the perfect recipe because I love wraps, and my husband just loves Chicken Cordon Bleu. I have to say, I was right. It was quite a hit with my husband, sister-in-law and myself.
I am one of those people that just has to have a few chips with any type of sandwich or wrap I eat. I was searching for something crunchy to go with these wraps, but looking for a healthier alternative and I found these Parmesan Pita Chips. My husband didn’t care for them – I think he was expecting something a bit different, but my sister-in-law and I loved them! They have just the right taste of flavor, without all the salt.
The preparation time was very easy for these two recipes, I bought a rotisserie chicken to help make things easier and it definitely made the preparation a lot faster. If you are looking for an easy, but healthier alternative for dinner or for lunch, definitely check these recipes out. I know I will be making these again for my family very soon!

Parmesan Pita Chips
- 2 tablespoons of Mrs. Dash seasoning mix (Italian Blend)

- Olive oil
- 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese
How to Make:
1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
2. Lightly brush the back and front of each whole pita bread with olive oil. You want just a light touch, you don’t want them to be soaked.

4. Sprinkle evenly over pita rounds and cut each into 6 triangles.
5. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake for 5-6 minutes.

You can serve these with dip, hummus, or just eat them alone!
