Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tbsp vegetable (15 mL) oil
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 pitas breads (no-pocket variety preferred)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup (250 mL) coarsely grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) finely diced yellow pepper
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Method

  1. In bowl, combine chicken, oil, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Turn to coat chicken. Grill on barbecue preheated to medium-high, 3 to 4 min. per side, or until cooked through. Transfer chicken to plate.
  2. Clean grill and toast pitas on it until golden on one side, about 1 min. Transfer pitas to work surface; grilled-sides up. Turn barbecue to low. Slice the chicken. Spread each pita with barbecue sauce. Top with chicken, cheese, yellow pepper and green onion. Carefully place topped pitas back on grill. Close lid and cook 2 to 3 min., or until pitas are toasted on bottom and cheese is melted.
