Yield: 8 pita halves


1 cup water
1/4 cup tamari sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast half cut in strips
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
4 whole pita bread rounds cut in half
8 chopped lettuce leaves
2 medium tomatoes thinly sliced
alfalfa sprouts


Combine 1 cup water, tamari, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Dissolve cornstarch in ΒΌ cup of cold water and add to sauce. Stir constantly to allow the sauce to thicken. If the sauce is too thick, add a little more water or tamari to thin it.

In a small bowl, combine chicken strips, teriyaki sauce, and garlic. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken mixture and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Remove from heat and keep warm. Fill each pita half with lettuce, tomato, chicken, and alfalfa sprouts. If desired, add additional teriyaki sauce.
