Easy Chicken Pita Sandwich Recipe

We are at the beach for seven entire days! Yay! However, the first two days have been rainy, stormy weather. Stan and I decided to stock up on a few easy meals to have in the condo for when we might want to eat in. I know…eat in on vacay?!? But hey, it’s not a bad deal. We sit and look at the waves crashing against the dunes with the palms and pines blowing in the storm. The view is great and we stay nice and dry. 
 
Now, I love me some Tzatziki sauce and yes, I know it can be easily made. But like I said…I am on VACAY! 😉 So, we went to the local Harris Teeter and put together this quick and easy sandwich. We both loved it for dinner and will make it again at home.
Easy Chicken Pita Sandwich Recipe
 
Ingredients:
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 tomato, thinly sliced (I bought grape tomatoes to use in a salad and the sandwich and just sliced several of those for each sandwich.)
1 tsp. or however much you like, Tzatziki Cucumber Dip 
Pita bread or pita pockets
Rotisserie or baked chicken – the grocery had cut baked chicken and we decided to give that a try instead of the Rotisserie. We loved this option because each piece had a crispy texture. 
 
Directions: you can’t get much easier than this!
I sliced the pita pockets and layered the onion, tomato, sauce and chicken. Pile as high as you want and enjoy a tasty sandwich.

Hot Ham & Cheese Croissant

Our family loves this quick and easy sandwich. We eat it for breakfast plain or with strawberry jam. We eat it at lunch or for an appetizer with honey mustard. The taste of the buttery croissant with the warm melty Swiss cheese and the flavorful ham that just zings your taste buds. The addition of strawberry jam or honey mustard compliments and melds all those delicious flavors. 

This morning I made them for a quick breakfast in our toaster oven. When I am making for a crowd, I use a large cookie sheet in the regular oven. 

My daughter, who is a vegetarian, eats the croissant and cheese or adds a scrambled egg.

I start with Croissants from the bakery. The ones I used today are cocktail size but if I am making lunch, I buy the full-size. You can use any ham you want. I like Sara Lee Honey Ham but I have also used left-over spiral ham from home or ham from the deli. The custom slices cheese work great for the smaller croissants. One slice broken in half and then one half broken again covers the entire croissant. I use three to four slices of ham. If using honey mustard, smear on to the croissant top and close. If using strawberry jam, I add that after it is warm. 

I bake in a 400 degrees, pre-heated oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the croissant is golden brown. The croissant will be a little crisp on top but still soft on the inside.
