Eggplant, Roasted Pepper and Chicken Pitas
Mmmmm!! My mouth waters just thinking of this! An Israeli Jewish lady taught this to my grandmother several years ago, and our entire family fell in love with it. It was so good, we served it for a small catered event, and it was a hit. This is for you if you enjoy Middle Eastern cuisine.
You can make your own roasted red peppers instead of buying them. This makes great leftovers--just assemble the sandwiches right before eating.
You can also fry the eggplant rounds instead of grilling. Pour canola oil about 1/2 inch deep in a cast iron skillet or heavy pan. Heat over medium-high heat. Wipe salted eggplant slices dry with a paper towel. Working in batches, fry eggplant until golden brown on each side. Lay cooked eggplant on a plate lined with double sheets of paper towels, because eggplant soaks up a lot of oil.
