Pita and French Bread



Got a late start on making bread yesterday.

Didn't start the process until after 2:00 PM.


About the time the bread was ready to shape, it was also dinner time and I hadn't planned anything.
(We had lunch out and I didn't think either of us would be very hungry - I was wrong.)

So, I pulled a couple of boneless chicken breasts out of the freezer and partially defrosted them in the microwave. 

Using a little of the bread dough, I made two pitas.

Shaped into rounds and left to rest for 30 minutes.

Baked on a hot stone.  
They puffed right up and only took a few minutes to bake.
No need to make a special Pita dough, especially if you only want a couple.

Mixed up a little sauce with mayonnaise seasoned with garlic,Dijon Mustard, salt, pepper and a little fresh lemon juice.

Chicken breasts were pounded flat, rubbed with garlic, salt and pepper  and grilled.

Topped with lettuce, tomato and red onion.
A quick and easy dinner.
