      Delicious! I don't like raw garlic so I skipped adding any to the sauce and just put it all in with the chicken. I think I will double the sauce next time, it was so good. The chicken had lots of flavor - a quick and easy enough meal.

      Awesome! I was looking to see if I needed to post this and you have me covered. We made these last night using Whole-Wheat Pitas and they were delicious! I will make this again for sure.

      We love this! I add more crushed red pepper, grill the chicken and double the sauce. (we are sauce freaks.) Thanks for posting, Lakerdog.
