Place butter onto a skillet over low heat. Add the onions and mushrooms. Sautée them until they get a nice, light golden color.

Now for our main ingredient: the BBQ'ed chicken breasts. You should probably slice the chicken breasts to make everything more manageable.

Now, there are two ways you can make this sandwich. One is to leave the pita bread flat on a plate and place the ingredients in the order below, rolling everything up together afterward.

The other way (the way I'm showing you in these images) is to cut the pita in half and open up the pocket between the two "slices", filling with the ingredients in the order listed below.

Either way will be delicious, trust me! It's just your personal preference.

So, choose your method! And let's go.....

Add a few lettuce leaves on top of the pita bread.

Next, on the middle of everything, place some of the sliced pickles on top.

Then, we'll add the sautéed onions and mushroom.

You'll also notice now in the image below, I've omitted the parsley but added a sliced, red bell pepper. This gives extra flavor, and I like the extra color too!!

Adding Peppers and Pepperoni

Now, if you like, you can add a bit more lettuce leaves.

Now finally, the chopped barbecued chicken breast is on next.

Depending on how many you're serving, you'll probably use only a portion of all the chicken for filling the pita bread.

The Final Ingredient: Chicken

Season with just a touch salt and pepper if you like, add some lettuce and finely chopped parsley.

And if you like, add a final layer of lettuce!

Finally, we roll each pita.
