Expert Tips

Pita bread folds are softer than regular pita bread, and fold without cracking. At the grocery store, look for the folds in the deli or near the pita breads.

Substitute 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel for the lemon-pepper seasoning.

To shred tender slow-cooked chicken, place it on a large plate. Use 2 forks to separate chicken into shreds. Shredded chicken absorbs flavorful juices and makes delicious, easy-to-eat sandwiches.
