Ginger Ale non-alcoholic Cocktail, Pita Filled with Broccoli Rabe, Chicken and Grana Padano


. Difficulty: Medium . Serves: 6/8 people . Preparation time: 30 minutes


1 kg broccoli rabe
600 g chicken breast
100 g Grana Padano 
1 red onion
50 g flour
150 g Greek yoghurt
1 lemon
1 garlic clove
extra virgin olive oil
chilli pepper
salt & pepper

Ingredients for 8 pitas

250 g all-purpose flour
250 g bread flour
300 g water
10 g brewer’s yeast
extra virgin olive oil


Prepare the pitas by dissolving the yeast in a bowl with a few tablespoons of warm water and a pinch of sugar.
Add the two flours, sifted, and begin to mix, pouring in the water in a little at a time. Add a pinch of salt and continue to knead until the dough is smooth and soft; shape into a ball and set aside to rise for at least 1 hour.
When the dough has risen, divide into 8 balls; on a floured work surface, roll out with a rolling pin into a thin, round sheet, of about 15-20 cm.
Brush the sheets with oil, arrange on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and let rise for 30-40 minutes.
Bake the pitas in a preheated oven at 200 °C for 5-10 minutes, until golden.
Prepare the filling by parboiling the broccoli rabe for a few minutes in salted water, drain well and sauté in a pan with a clove of garlic, 1 chilli pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
In a bowl, mix the yoghurt with the juice of 1/2 lemon, a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper.
Cut the chicken into strips, dredge in flour and brown in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil, adding the lemon juice at the end. Add the grated Grana Padano, mix well and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Fill the pita with the broccoli rabe and chicken, both still warm, and top with the yoghurt and lemon dressing.
