There are an abundance of wonderful places to eat in our area and occassionally, I will have something at a local restaurant that I will attempt to recreate at home for days when I don't have someone to go out with.
|Chicken "Pitza" dinner a al Aladdin's|
Although I have a date set up to meet a friend for lunch at Aladdin's again next week, I have been so craving one of these pitza's I've decided to try to make one at home. I hope to quench the craving at home allowing me try another of their wonderful menu items this time around.
Hoping that the nice folks at Aladdin's will feel that imiatation is the sincerest form of flattery, I do believe I've hit the nail on the head here. To get a full middle Eastern effect, try my hummus recipe to go along with this meal. I chose a simple salad for tonight because the fresh greens are available now from the farm markets.
|1 pita round (split in halve horizontally - half set aside for another use) |
1 marinated chicken cutlet* (see recipe below)
5 Tablespoons honey mustard garlic sauce **(see recipe below)
4-5 thin strips green pepper
1 scallion sliced thinly
|ASSEMBLE THE PITZA |
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
On the pita half, evenly spread the honey mustard garlic sauce. Place on a sheet pan and top with the chicken pieces, green pepper strips and scallion slices.
|Bake the pitza for 10-15 minutes. |
Watch carefully toward the end of the baking time so that the sugars in the honey mustard sauce do not burn.
|Remove from the oven, cut into four slices and serve.|
**HONEY MUSTARD GARLIC SAUCE
Mix well and refrigerate for at least a few hours for the flavors to combine.
