Do you ever feel like dinner is just one more chore at the end of the day?

I’m usually so exhausted by the time 4:30 rolls around that it’s har to muster up the energy to cook – especially during the winter months when it is dark by then and it’s been cloudy and grey all day. And I love to cook!

Chicken pita with avocado spread - The Everyday Mom Life



If you add any after school activities on top of it, just put a fork in me. I’ll default to something random, easy and not always the best if I don’t have a plan – like microwaved chicken nuggets and mac and cheese or frozen pizza.

It’s this very thinking that has led me to develop some delicious recipes that don’t require much cooking at all. From crockpot meals to simple and delicious meals that I can just throw together, I have a a handful of easy dinner options in my back pocket that make dinner a snap. I’ll be sharing them over the next few weeks and this Roasted Chicken Pita with Avocado Spread is the first!

Meal Prep or Not

There’s actually no cooking involved in this for you and that’s part of the reason I love this easy dinner. You chop and you blend and that’s it.

You can even buy and chop all these things for the recipe ahead of time so it’s perfect if you like to meal plan for the week and prep things on Sunday. Full disclosure: I’m not a meal prep-er. I’ve tried but I just can’t get into it.

What I can get into is this avocado spread made with yogurt. I’m a bit obsessed with it. It’s perfect for this recipe but it’s also perfect for so many other things. It will go well with any sort of cold sandwich and it’s amazing for dipping additional pita, chips and even veggies. I kind of want to put it on everything I eat this week. It’s that kind of good.

  1. This looks so good, I love avocado. I mean its so delicious I don’t understand how someone could hate it. Anyway I love chicken pitas and the addition of avocados makes it even better.

  2. Keeping meals simple and easy is key to having fresh homemade food on a regular basis. I love that you don’t even need to turn the oven on for this just chop and blend and can even prep some ahead of time or make a double batch for later in the week when you know you will be busy. Plus avocado puts everything over the top.

  3. This looks amazing. I don’t like mayonnaise. So, I’m always looking quick lunch and dinner options that are also non-mayo. I am roasting a chicken now for dinner. So, I’m definitely making this for lunch tomorrow.

  4. I love how simple this is but has so many interesting flavors and textures going on. We tend to get in a rut with dinner / lunch and this is such an easy meal to shake things up!

  5. This should be my healthy breakfast! It has everything that I love and I need to start a new day in a healthy way! Looks amazing!

  6. Wow this is so easy! And soooo good! I absolutely love using pitas and avacados together so this is seriously the perfect recipe for me!

  7. This looks so delicious! I am always on the lookout for healthy, easy weeknight meals. I like to cook extra chicken in the crockpot, shred it, and freeze any extra to throw in meals just like this! Pinning and will be trying next week.

  8. This looks so good! I am loving that avocado spread. This is going to make for a nutritious, filling lunch. Thanks for the meal idea!

  9. I have to try the avocado dip with yoghurt! I always end up using a simple avocado, salt and garlic spread, but this looks waaaay creamier! Thank you for the inspiration!

  10. OMG! This looks really delicious and it made me really hungry. This is a perfect example of a good and healthy food. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Can’t wait to try it.
