How do I know that?
Because you're in my quick and easy recipe section!
But you're hungry.
So, let's get started making my easy chicken salad sandwich recipe - with pita bread!!
2 barbecued chicken breasts
8 slices of pepperoni
2 large pickles, sliced
6 small mushrooms
1-2 small onions
1-2 tablespoon of butter
Salt, pepper to taste
2 pita breads
1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley
1 bell pepper sliced
large saute pan (skillet)
Wash and peel the onions.
Next, cut them into small pieces.
Wash the mushrooms. Slice into small pieces as well.
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!!
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.
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.
Tips??? Chef: we’re done!
OK - we'll add some chopped pepper and cucumber as a serving decoration! This always adds a nice touch.
Aren’t you amazed at how easy it is?!
