Recipe by  

"I sort of made up this recipe, and it turned out to be pretty good. I was trying to imitate a pita with garlic butter sauce appetizer this one restaurant makes."

We were very disappointed in this recipe, which I followed EXACTLY. It was edible but the taste was lemon, not garlic. Sorry for the poor rating but I won't make this again.

Very good. Just be careful to watch the garlic, or it can burn and be bitter. I had one pita round left, so I halved the recipe and tried it that way. I liked all the flavors together, but I didn't like how the garlic didn't all stick to the pita. I think I'll make a garlic paste next time to see if that makes me happier. Thanks for sharing!

These were great! They were crispy and perfect with soup.

I'd made a similar recipe before but never thought of adding the really brightens it up. I only cook about 5 mins though.

Mabye a bit lemony. More instruction required on how to get them to fry up without burning chopped garlic. Remember to slowly sprinkle in garlic powder to keep it from bunching up.

I LOVE pita chips!! A more simple version...cut pockets into 2 rounds. Spray both sides of each round with olive oil/sprinkle w/garlic salt & whatever other spices you favor. Cut into wedges & spread out on cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 10 min-flip them over & bake till golden. GRRREAT with chunky salsa!
