    twissis's Note:

    Found at the biggirlssmallkitchen website, this easy-fix & sure-to-be-tasty sandwich was featured by Kelsey Brown in a “Brown Baggin’ It” article primarily directed at college students & the working masses who dine in “Break Rooms” more often than not. Kelsey said: “Make your fellow students or co-workers jealous when they’re unwrapping their frozen “diet” entrées & you whip out this fresh, light & flavorful Moroccan Chicken Salad Sandwich in Pita Bread.” Do not be intimidated by what may appear to be a complex set of ingredients. The ingredients are simple & the rest is a matter of spicing. Ingredient prep & assembly time was estimated. There was no cook time since the recipe begins w/pre-cooked chicken. Enjoy!

    2. 2
      Add chicken mixture to the liquids & stir to coat. Do a taste test. If too dry or not enough “kick”, adjust spices &/or olive oil to taste.

      We really like these pita sandwiches. They are good to make and keep in the refrigerator for lunch. My family doesn't like the olives so I leave them out. Instead of using mayonnaise I buy hummus to spread on the insides of the pita and it gives it that extra something.

      Although I left out the mint (personal preference) I otherwise followed the directions. The combination of flavors is outstanding and what looks like a long list of ingredients fit together perfectly. I do think this made more than 4 generous servings. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

      What a fabulous mixture of flavors I never would have thought to put together! These sandwiches went over well at our house tonight. I almost left the mint out, didn't think we'd like it in there, and wasn't sure about the whole 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, but ended up saying, "what the heck," and followed the recipe exactly. Don't over-think, do it just as she says! This recipe goes in the keeper file! And I used a rotisserie chicken from the deli for ease and quickness. Thanks, twissis, this is another winner. ZWT9
