In a medium bowl, combine chicken, tomato, alfalfa sprouts, mushrooms, cheese, onion, garlic powder and pepper; set aside. Cut 1/2- to 1-inch slice from edge of each pita pocket; discard slice. Spoon one-third of the salad filling into each pita pocket. Place pitas in a single layer on a paper towel-lined microwavable plate. Cover with a second paper towel. Microwave at 50% power (350 watts) for 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese melts, rotating plate one-half turn after 2 minutes. If you prefer, use 1 can (6 1/2 oz.) chunk style light tuna, drained, instead.
