Spicy Chicken on Pita Wedges

Submitted by: 1KOKOMO1

Introduction

This is an awesome appetizer recipe. Everyone loves it! I'm sure you will too!
I like to mix it up ahead of time and put it in the fridge. I also cut up the pita bread before I put the mixture on it. It's prettier for appetizers when it's drop by spoonfuls onto the bread. More tedious, but prettier.

    Great! I played with the spices to suite our tastes and diced the peppers and onions because we prefer a smoother texture. - 2/8/09
