You can make your own tasty pita chips in a matter of minutes. Just cut pita bread into wedges (stale pitas work very well), brush them with a little olive oil and bake. Not only do homemade pita chips save you money, you'll also cut calories by 16 percent.

  • 4 6-inch whole-wheat pitas
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Position oven racks in middle and lower third of oven; preheat to 350 °F. Coat 2 large baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cut pitas into 8 wedges each and separate each wedge at the fold. Place the pita wedges, rough-side up, in an even layer on the prepared baking sheets. Brush with oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt.
  3. Bake the pita wedges, switching the baking sheets halfway through, until golden and crispy, 6 to 10 minutes (depending on the thickness).
  • Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
  • Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.

Perfect addition! These were incredibly easy and delicious. I used a McCormicks Italian Seasoning grinder, and just ground the seasonings over the chips. I served with EatingWell's Chopped Greek Salad for Two (http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chopped_greek_salad_with_chicken_for_two.html) and store bought roasted red pepper hummus. They were the perfect addition to an already healthy and delicious meal. When we finished dinner, my husband informed me that I needed to add both recipes to our keep pile. I will definitely be making these again. Pros: Super easy! Cons: None
