"These are a great easy weeknight dinner! My 7-year-old gobbled them down and asked for seconds, which is great for something with vegetables and whole grains. We used chicken and apple sausage because it was what I had on hand."

"Delicious, quick and easy--everything I look for in a nutritious weekday evening meal. We had our pita pickets with fresh corn on the cob on the side and felt like we'd had a summer garden feast. Excellent recipe. The only thing I added was a little seasoning salt."
