I was late coming home one evening and forgot to pick up tortillas for the fajitas we planned for dinner. So we used pita bread that I had in the freezer instead. The warm chicken-filled pockets, garnished with a homemade sauce and other tasty toppings, are often requested when we're hungry for something in a hurry.

Since my husband and I are empty nesters, this recipe is great for just the two of us, although it could be increased. We both love these tasty sandwiches—especially my husband, who "lives to eat" rather than "eats to live"!
Pizza is such a favorite at our house that I make it at least once a week. When the heat and humidity are up there, though, the last thing that I want to do is turn on the oven. So I just move my recipe to the grill—the barbecue flavor mingling with the cheese tastes delicious. —Lisa Boettcher, Columbus, Wisconsin
Meet the Cook: Some wonderful maple syrup I brought back from my last trip to Vermont is what inspired my recipe. These wings have been a hit with family and friends. They're very versatile - use them for TV snacks, hors d'oeuvres for parties or showers, or appetizers...or double or triple the recipe and make the wings a main dish you can serve with a salad or corn on the cob on the side.

Meet the Cook: Very near the top of the list of foods I prepare for company is this chicken. It's easy to fix and has never flopped. It is a family favorite, too - any leftovers are great in a salad or sandwich.
My husband and I are the parents of eight, who range in age from 24 to 11. We also have three grandchildren.
