Ginger Chicken Salad Pitas

This is just something I threw together one night and it actually turned out really well. We had purchased a Costco rotisserie chicken one day for dinner and had some left over. I'm sure you can use regular chicken breast too, but if you can make 2 meals from one item and it only cost you $ 4.99 to begin with? I'll roll with it! :)

1 cup of cooked chicken breast
1/2 chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup unsalted cashews
1 tbsp minced ginger
2 tbsp mayo
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp ginger juice ( use fresh ginger and use your garlic press to get the juice out)
1 tbsp lime juice (again, use fresh)

Mix the first 4 ingredients together in a medium bowl. 
Mix the next 4 ingredients, and add them to the chicken mix.

We served ours on whole wheat pitas with some frozen french fries and green beans.
