These pitas are a great way of using leftover chicken. When sending it for your child's lunch, package the pita, tomatoes, chicken and tahini sauce separately. Include a spoon or plastic knife so your child can have fun assembling it just before eating.

Tahini Sauce: In bowl, whisk together yogurt, tahini, mayonnaise, 1 tbsp (25 mL) water, lemon juice, garlic, cumin and salt ; set aside. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Cut off top third of each pita. Open larger piece; slip smaller pita piece inside, cut side up.
Divide chicken and parsley among pitas. (Make-ahead: Wrap each stuffed pita in plastic wrap. Pack cherry tomatoes and tahini sauce in separate airtight containers. Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Add cherry tomatoes to pitas: drizzle each pita with 2 tbsp (25 mL) tahini sauce.
