2 (6-inch) multi-grain pita breads, halved horizontally
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup reduced-fat creamy Caesar dressing
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 (5-ounce) container baby romaine lettuce mix
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
2 cups cook sliced chicken breast


Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the pita halves on a small baking sheet and lightly spray with olive oil cooking spray. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of the Parmesan cheese onto each pita half. Bake until the edges are lightly browned and the cheese is melted slightly, about 7 minutes. Set aside.

Combine 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese, the Caesar dressing, lemon juice, and mustard in a small bowl. Toss the lettuce mix and tomatoes with 2 tablespoons of the dressing in a large bowl. Top the pitas evenly with the salad mixture and arrange the chicken on top. Drizzle each with the remaining dressing, then sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
