Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1/2 each) equals 352 calories, 14 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 66 mg cholesterol, 310 mg sodium, 31 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 24 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chutney, curry powder and chicken; refrigerate until serving.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup warm water. Add 1-1/2 cups of flour, oil, salt, sugar and remaining water; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down; shape into six balls. Let rise for 30 minutes. Sprinkle three ungreased baking sheets with cornmeal. Roll each ball into a 7-in. circle. Place two circles on each baking sheet. Let rise for 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 500° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut pitas in half. Line each with lettuce; fill with 1/3 cup chicken mixture. Yield: 12 sandwiches.
