Grilled Chicken Club Pitas Recipe

Publisher Photo
Why heat up the kitchen on warm Indian summer evenings when you can take dinner in hand with these hearty chicken pitas from Lynne Ziegler in Odenton, Maryland? LYNNE’S TIP: I also roll up the chicken strips in flour tortillas and serve as grab-and-go wrap sandwiches. Serve any leftover chicken with mixed greens and the last of the garden tomatoes in lunch salads the next day.

"I dipped the chicken in a bread crumb/parmesan mix like I saw for another recipe, and it came out extra good. Very easy to make and all the flavors went really great together."

"This was really quite good. I'm not a big mustard fan so I was hesitant to make it as the recipe states but I did. It turned out really good. My husband really likes it too."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 5, 2011

"So I was looking for something easy to cook and something that didn't heat up the whole house. This was perfect. Quick and easy. I did have to double everything to feed my family. Both my boys and my husband loved it and voted to have it again soon."
