Place the chicken in the bowl and rub with the spice mix. Ensure that all the chicken is coated.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to marinate.
Heat a non-stick fry pan over medium heat and spray lightly with oil spray. Add the chicken strips and cook for 3–4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and cooked through.
Remove from the heat and set aside.
To serve, layer the chicken, spinach, bell pepper, carrot, and tomato within the pita half.
