Greek Chicken Pita Folds

My husband and I love Greek Food. In fact, we enjoy a lot of Mediterranean foods.  Anytime we travel to a big city, we look for a good Greek restaurant, where we are sure to find a fabulous Gyro.  We don’t have a spectacular Greek spot in our town, so I decided to search for recipes that would hit the spot when we got a hankering for a Gyro.  I stumbled across the recipe for this on my little quest and it has been a favorite ever since.
