    Delicious! I added a bit of paprika and chicken salt,it's a very flexible recipe. Very easy and moreish!  -  03 Feb 2013


    This was a great recipe. I did make some modifications. I ommited the chevril. I also used closer to a cup and a half of olive oil. I used wheat pita pockets, and they just really soaked up the olive oil. I baked for 5 minutes and they came out perfect! **Update** I made these again, and I used less olive oil because instead of cutting the pita pockets into triangles and then brushing them with the olive oil mixture, I only cut them in half, and then I brushed them. After each was covered I cut into triangles. This was SOOO much easier and less time consuming!  -  04 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The recipe never said exactly HOW to cut the pita into 8 pieces and, to me, this made all the difference. First, I cut it like a pie with 8 pieces (leaving the two layers of pita). I had to bake for 15 minutes (flipping the pitas once) to get a crispy effect. The next time, I cut it lengthwise and then into 4 thin pieces (yielding a total of 8) and cooked for 7 minutes. Each came out well, but I guess it's a matter of preference. The first way, chips are thicker, the second way, they are thinner and crispier. Also, I found it easier to sprinkle the herb mixture. When I dipped the pitas in the oil, some pieces had a lot more seasoning than others. Still, they were a great hit and tasted delicious.  -  23 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
