Part bowl, part salad, part sandwich folded up into any kind of bread you like, and I’m here for it in every form.
Favorite thing I’ve been eating lately: these sheet pan chicken pitas.
Er, can we call them pitas? They are part bowl, part salad, part sandwich folded up into any kind of bread you like including but not limited to pitas, and I’m here for it in every form.
Here’s our lineup:
- marinated, spiced, flash-roasted chicken
- roasted bell peppers
- diced fresh cucumber
- kalamata olives
- feta cheese
- olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice
- tzatziki (that yogurt dill sauce that crowns the plate)
Pile that on a plate and grab a fork – or grab a piece of warm, soft naan, or pita, or socca (YUM), and get to work. You’ve got the crunchy, and the cool-creamy, and the puckery-briney all happening in one big joyful bite.
How To Serve Sheet Pan Chicken Pitas
Here’s how I like to serve this: family style!
Everything goes on a roasting pan, and you effortlessly carry your gourmet-looking roasting pan to the table, and you let your people feast.
It’s comforting and filling. But it’s also happy and crunchy and fresh, which is exactly what we need right now in the deep winter. Happy, fresh, filling, annnd go.
