Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients, cover and let marinate for an hour.
  2. Cook over medium heat in a large saucepan until done (should be dry).
  3. (I don't like onions and garlic all that much, so i pick the chicken out).
  4. If you can get arabian pita bread from an international store, do so, it is a million times better than pita.
  5. Heat bread, spread with a little mayo.
  6. Put chicken along one side and wrap.
  7. Variations: try adding french fries, or pickles.
  8. Instead of plain mayo, mix some mayo with lemon juice, olive oil and garlic.
