  1. This Chicken recipe is quick and easy.
  2. It’s a great way of serving veggies. Load it up with lettuce, onions, and cucumbers.
  3. The warm pita with freshly cooked chicken and crisp veggies is a medley of flavor in every bite.
  4. Dissolve the Active Dry yeast and sugar in warm water and wait till it becomes frothy.
  5. Add salt and 1.5 cups of all-purpose flour. Add the frothy yeast mix. Keep adding the flour 1/2 cup at a time, till the flour are all mixed. If the dough looks too dry, add a little warm water, 1 tbsp at a time.
  6. Once the dough is formed, divide it into 6 balls.
  7. Flatten each ball with a rolling pin. Keep around a quarter-inch thickness. An even thickness helps them puff.

  13. Add Ginger garlic paste and mix well. The chicken should start releasing water at his point.
