I bought two packages of pitas from the "day-old-bread" section for $1, knowing I could put them to good use. Turns out I was right. These pita chips were easy to make (so easy that my five year old did it-- hence the uneven seasoning, but hey... I won't turn down the help. :) and they became the quick tasty star of our dish. Delish! (*Also great for dips like hummus etc.)
Baked Pita Chips (pickycook.com)
12 pita bread pockets
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon Italian herbs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Combine pepper, garlic, salt, onion powder, and herbs in a small bowl. Brush the pita with olive oil.
Cut each pita into triangles (like slicing a pizza).
Sprinkle with or toss in seasoning mixture.Place triangles on lined baking sheet.
Bake for about 7 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Keep an eye on them - they go from perfect to burnt in a matter of seconds.
