  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place chicken in a saucepan with garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary; add water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat medium-low, cover, and simmer until chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Remove chicken, let cool, and cut into strips.
  3. Meanwhile, place bread cubes on a baking sheet. Spray with butter spray; sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley.
  4. Bake bread cubes in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Turn cubes; spray again with butter spray and sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes until golden brown and crunchy. Remove croutons, and let cool.
  5. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly browned and crispy. Remove bacon from skillet, drain on paper towels and crumble.
  6. Combine chicken, bacon, lettuce, and croutons in a large bowl. Toss with Caesar salad dressing and Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss again. Spoon salad mixture into pita bread halves.

Loved this, but I was a little lazy. When I was in the store getting the chicken, I bought croutons, put them in a Ziploc bag and banged them just a bit with a rolling pin just to reduce the siz...

these are wonderful. i left out the croutons becuase then it would seem to much like a salad and my husband doesnt like salad. but this was absoultly amazing definatly going to be a weekly meal ...

Super tasty. Left out the croutons because I was feeling lazy. The boyfriend loved it, had it for lunch and dinner today. Thanks!

Made this for lunch last week and my daughter and I loved it. I used leftover chicken and stuck with my homemade caesar salad dressing from this site. So delish and thanks Michelle!

I planned on following the exact recipe, but bought flat bread by accident, so I decided to make pizzas....mmmmmmm! I chopped the chicken then mixed it with the dressing and topped the flatbrea...

Very good easy recipe. I like to bake the pita halves for a bit before I stuff them. This gives the pita more texture.

So Easy and very tasty - we just add some hummus on the side and it was perfect!

I made this recipes exactly as written except that I didn't have any pitas so we ate it as the main dish for dinner. My husband loved it.

This was definitly good, but if you're not a fan of caesar salads you won't like it, because that what it basically is, in a pita. Anyways, my husband and I both enjoyed the recipe quite a bit.
