  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook on each side until browned. Reduce heat to medium, cover skillet, and cook until chicken is no longer pink, and the juices run clear, about 10 more minutes. Remove from skillet, cool slightly, and slice into strips.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and garlic. Season with salt to taste. Tear pita breads into pieces, and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place chicken strips in a layer over the bread. Cover with the yogurt mixture. Sprinkle chickpeas and pine nuts over the top. Let stand for about 10 minutes to blend flavors, then serve. No need to heat up.

This was so yummy and hearty. I love yogurt and garlic together and the pine nuts work really well too.

The flavors just didn't come together well on this one. I won't be making it again.

We love all these ingredients, but this really didn't work well. The flavor just wasn't right. We won't be trying this one again.

One of my favourites, but used to do it only with chickpeas. Eaten after 2 hours of chilling is especially yummy. (for those who do not know, this should be eaten with a spoon) Thumbs up!

Ewwww, it was REALLY weird. Plus, the measurements didn't really seem to fit the dish, it looked awkward and tasted so odd. We didn't know how to eat it.

Pretty good and basic. I added some sour cream and finely chopped onion to the yogurt mixture. I also suggest using only two cloves of garlic, three is a bit overwhelming. After placing the chicken in the baking dish, I added finely shredded cheese and baked the dish until the cheese was melted (about 10-15 minutes)and then put the mixture over the warmed dish. I did not use the beans or the nuts, but instead spread chopped peanuts over the top. Great!
