    alligirl's Note:

    If mini pita breads are unavailable in your area, split larger pita breads horizontally in half and cut out smaller pita rounds using a 3-inch-diameter biscuit cutter. You can streamline the process by preparing both the chicken salad and the toasted pita rounds one day in advance. Taken from for ZWT.

      I really loved this chicken salad recipe. I am not a huge fan of mayo, so the concept of using tahini was intriguing to me. I halved the salad ingredients and used a rotisserie chicken for the meat. I loved all of the cilantro in this dish. The salad was very fresh tasting and delicious. DH said he might add a little more water to make it less thick. I liked it as it was. Our market carries the mini pitas, so that is what I used. The only change I made was that DH grilled the pitas instead of baking them in the oven. This worked really well. Thanks so much for posting. This is going in my keeper file. Made for Family Picks ZWT6.
