Pitta Sandwich

Son returns home after a long day at school. Son sees mother waiting for him at the door step. The conversation follows...

Son: "Hello amma, whats for dinner?"

Mother: "Your favourite chicken roast."

Son: With a sad face "Oh the same chicken we had last night?"

Mother: A little surprised "But you enjoyed your meal yesterday."

Son: "Yes I like it, but can't have the same today. Please amma, make something different."

Mother thought she could have the evening off from the kitchen, but her son made her think twice. Suddenly a quick recipe stroke her mind to best use the left over roast chicken.

Shredded chicken with pitta bread

Things you need

Shredded chicken-250gms
Onion(thinly sliced)-2
Green pepper (thinly sliced)-1
Coriander leaves to garnish
Oil-4 tbps
salt as per taste


Heat a pan, add oil and saute the onions till they are translucent. Add the shredded chicken and the sliced green pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Make sure that the pepper is crunchy. Season with salt and garnish with coriander.

This dish would go best with pitta bread or chappati, salad and cheese spread.

(As the chicken is already spicy, no extra spices are added. In this recipe the left over tikkas, kababs, fried chicken can also be used instead of roast chicken. You may add spices depending on your tastes.)

The son comes to the table for dinner. He looks at the food and smiles and hugs mother. Thank you amma.

Though we sometimes get very frustrated cooking all day, watching the kids enjoy their meal is a great satisfaction.

Thanks Jyothi. You can use creamy cheese but I made a mixture of cheese & mayonnaise.
