curry orzo & chicken salad pitas

I get the privilege of hanging out with one of my very best friends, Carly, for the next 5 weeks. One of the perks is that she is an amazing cook – and I have been reaping the benefits. The other day she made us some chicken salad pitas that were TO DIE FOR. The combination of textures & flavors is unreal – and it’s pretty healthy to boot.
