This is a quick, great tasting sandwich that's a little spicy. This spice mixture is similar to the (great) Philly Steak Sandwich recipe submitted by Wendy L, but modified for the Southwestern flavor. The sauce is best prepared before hand to let flavors blend.

My family loves the chicken and dislikes the sauce. We eat this regularly but use a chipotle ranch sauce instead. Read More

When I read the recipe I was skeptical about the sauce with the combination of chipotle peppers yogurt and peanut butter. I overlooked this due to the various glowing reviews of the sauce. I wish I trusted my instincts. The sauce ruined an otherwise good recipe. If the sauce combinations of recipes gives you pause trust your instincts. Read More

I was a little weary of the sauce but it is really good on the pitas. It tasted a little strange when I tasted it on it's own but it really compliments the pitas well. My husband didn't even use the sauce and he loved them. Very easy very healthy. Great recipe! Read More

Really really good. I added garlic to the onion and bell pepper saute and only used 1 1/2 chipotle peppers and 3 tbsp peanut butter (instead of 4) in the sauce. For those of you who are as skeptical about the peanut butter as I was don't be...it works and you can't really tell it's there. I think I would still stick with 3 tbsp peanut butter instead of 4 otherwise the peanut butter taste might be more obvious. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I found that the sauce was still too spicy for my family's taste (even my husband thought it was too spicy which is rare). I also thought there was too much sauce you could probably cut the recipe in half. Then again maybe if it were less spicy we would have used more sauce. I loved the spices used on the chicken and I really enjoyed how everything tasted together. In the future I will probably use only 1 pepper maybe even a little less. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
