My brother and sister-in-law were in town staying with us for the past few days. We spent one evening grilling a complete meal outside, with grilled chicken pitas, a HUGE zucchini from their garden cut up and grilled with some tomatoes (also from their garden!), and grilled potatoes/brussels sprouts. I always find that grilling potatoes takes longer than anything else, so I’ve taken to cheating—I cut the potatoes and pre-cook them a little in the microwave, using one a steam-cooking bag. Then I put them on the grill (or in the oven) for a shorter period of time to get them nice and crispy.
The grilled chicken pitas were a big hit with everyone eating them. Adam grilled the chicken breasts on aluminum foil to capture the juices (and keep the juices off my veggie dog!! ha!) and the resulting product was, by all counts, tender and flavorful. He used a few shakes of Frankenmuth Chicken Seasoning, shown here, on the meat:
Here’s Adam’s recipe:
Grilled Chicken Pitas
Four boneless, skinless, trimmed chicken breasts
Salt & pepper
Frankenmuth chicken seasoning
4 pita breads
Chopped green leaf lettuce
Season the chicken with a little olive oil, salt & pepper, and Frankenmuth chicken seasoning. Grill on a piece of aluminum foil, flipping occasionally, until the chicken is white in the middle and cooked throughout. Slice the grilled chicken into strips and serve in a pita with lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, and a little ranch dressing.
