Chicken Satay in Pita

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

A great brown-bag sandwich that is easy to make and a delight to the taste buds. I package everything seperately. At work I heat the satay in the microwave, then assemble. Sure beats the heck out of boring pb&j.

This was awesome! The whole family liked it. i didn't have a cucumber, so I used shredded carrots instead.
