“This was one of my entries for RSC #13. This pita sandwich makes a delicious and healthy lunch. The moist and lightly breaded and baked chicken is complemented nicely by the crunchy vegetables and the Swiss cheese adds a wonderful creaminess. I buy the chicken breasts at the grocery store that are already thinly sliced. Updated on Feb. 27, 2009, after reviewers suggestions.”
