Italian Chicken Pitas
I kind of fell in love with pitas when I lived in Las Vegas. They are just so stinkin' simple, cheap and delicious. I have a ga-zillion recipes with pitas, so whenever they go on sale be sure to buy several and keep them in your freezer. They make the perfect lunch, they even travel well when we have a picnic. Can I get a "woot" for pitas please?
*To warm pitas there's the fast way (10-15 seconds in the microwave) or you can spread butter on the pita and warm on a pan to give you a delicious crisp. Mmmmm
*Be adventerous with this recipe, add crumbled bacon, olives, cheese, boiled egg, diced cucumbers, sprouts, go crazy!
