Peggy's Pita Bread & Chicken Filling

What I'll be sharing afterwards.....

Yesterday, almost everything didn't turn out as planned...
Firstly.... Syahmi and Iddin had to stay in school till 5pm. They only have a half an hour break from 2.30 pm till 3.00 pm before the sports activities starts. So I had planned to bring them packed lunch and their sports clothes to change. That, I thought would save me a trip to and fro. I brought along the lunch basket at 2.30pm. When Syahmi jumped into the car, he said that he wanted to go home and change because the changing room is locked. No choice, but to drop Iddin home and told him to be ready by 2.55pm. When we reached home, I just had to rush Syahmi to pray and get changed. Luckily he had eaten his lunch in the car. I really had to be a lady tarzan just now or he'll take his own sweet time! By 3.02pm, the boys were safely back in school. And mama didn't rempit that much okay...or...did I? Ahakss.....
Secondly... I thought I would be meeting Zai in the evening but she couldn't make it. Instead Kak Noha and her daughter Ijah, dropped by
Thirdly... I wanted to fry kue tiau for my visitors, but ended up frying instant dried noodles instead...

But at least, something did turn out according to plan. The lunch! The night before, I had google-ed for Pita Bread recipe. And I settled down with this one. It was the right choice, alhamdulillah. Thank you to Sandy of Allrecipes dot com for sharing this wonderful recipe with us. Allow me to share it once again here.

I made half the recipe and managed to get 5 good sized pita breads. I had stuffed the bread with chicken fillings and vegetables. Sounds healthy huh? Iddin just took one and the rest was history in Syahmi's hungry tummy! Yes, he ate the other 4. I just tasted a bit of the crumbs from the bread! But I am very sure, the bread must be very good judging by how Syahmi had enjoyed the bread. So if you wish to give it a try, here's the recipe.

Yields : 8


1 1/8 cups warm water (110 degrees F
/45 degrees C)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast


1. Place all ingredients in bread pan of your bread machine, select Dough setting and start. When dough has risen long enough, machine will beep.
2. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently roll and stretch dough into a 12 inch rope. With a sharp knife, divide dough into 8 pieces. Roll each into a smooth ball. With a rolling pin, roll each ball into a 6 to 7 inch circle. Set aside on a lightly floured countertop. cover with a towel. Let pitas rise about 30 minutes until slightly puffy.
3. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Place 2 or 3 pitas on a wire cake rack. Place cake rack directly on oven rack. Bake pitas 4 to 5 minutes until puffed and tops begin to brown. Remove from oven and immediately place pitas in a sealed brown paper bag or cover them with a damp kitchen towel until soft. Once pitas a softened, either cut in half or split top edge for half or whole pitas. They can be stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for several days or in the freezer for 1 or 2 months.

Note :

I had followed the Step 1 and Step 2.
I heated the grill pan and place the pitas on the pan till the bottom is brown. Then move it into the grill and bake till golden brown.
