Lamb, Chickpea and Apricot Pitas

Leftovers are a great source of nourishment for your desk-side dinners; however, you sometimes get bored with eating the same thing over and over again. With a little bit of effort, make these lamb, chickpea and apricot pitas, and leftover lamb can be transformed into a wonderful lunchtime treat that bears almost no resemblance the roast dinner it was the day before.


  • Leftover lamb (from 1 lamb shank or equivalent), cooked
  • 100g chickpeas
  • 50g dried apricots, chopped
  • Mixed salad leaves
  • 3 pita pockets


  • 120g Greek yoghurt
  • ½ clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp dried mint
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil


  1. Mix together the lamb, chickpeas and apricots.
  2. To make the dressing mix together all the ingredients and set aside.
  3. To assemble, cut one side off the pitas.
  4. Stuff with the mixed salad leaves.
  5. Top with lamb mixture and add a dollop of the yoghurt dressing.
  6. Serve warm with any extra dressing on the side.
