    Simple and delicious. I used the warm fried chicken from my grocery store and since I was using coleslaw dressing decided to use coleslaw in the sandwich. Very good for a quick lunch.

    One more thing, I've used Ranch Dresg. in the past but this sauce combo is much better!

    I've made this recipe more than once.Now I'm just using Fried Chicken Strips orFried Chicken Patties - sliced up. Then we like to add some shredded cheddar cheese and chopped up leaf lettuce (as the picture shows). Also can use flour tortilla shells as an option to the pita shells.
