Cranberries and pear are sweet counterpoints in this tangy curried chicken salad. Toasted sliced almonds add a nutty crunch.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the salad (Step 1) for up to 2 days.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
6 tablespoons  nonfat plain yogurt
1/4 cup  low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon  curry powder
2 cups  cooked, cubed chicken breast (see Tip)
1   ripe but firm pear, diced
1 stalk  celery, finely diced
1/2 cup  dried cranberries
1/4 cup  sliced or slivered almonds, toasted (see Tip)
4 4- to 5-inch  whole-wheat pita breads, cut in half
2 cups  sprouts

Tip: : If you don’t have cooked chicken, poach about 12 ounces chicken breast for this recipe. Place boneless, skinless chicken breast in a medium skillet or saucepan. Add lightly salted water (or chicken broth) to cover and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 15 minutes. To toast sliced or slivered almonds: Place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
