“Peppery” Chicken Pita Pocket Recipe


For my fellow country men who do not know what pita (or pitta) is, it is a type of flat, slightly leavened, oval shaped bread (origin: Middle Eastern countries). It can be opened to form a pocket which can be filled to make excellent sandwiches. Any thing ranging from fish, meat or vegetable fillings can be packed into the pockets to make some of the most satisfying and filling brunches, lunches or light dinner. Pita bread can also be used for dipping if served with some sauce.

I do, sometimes get tired of eating same type of bread often, so I tend to look for alternatives, and why shouldn’t I, there are hundreds of different types of bread ranging in composition flavours and textures!

Sandwiches are not quite a Nigerian thing, but they are becoming more and more popular especially in urban areas, where, though still very much limited, a handful types of sandwiches are popular, most popular being the Club Sandwich…!

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
