Whole Rotisserie Chicken

A whole Chicken, about 3-4 lbs. will make up about three meals for 2 people. Make about 6 good size Pita Pockets or break the Chicken down into the meals below. Use the leftover bones for chicken stock.

I usually use the Quarters for St Hubert’s or Swiss Chalet Quarter Piece Chicken Platter with Sauce & Fries. The Breast for this recipe made with Pita Pockets or Rotisserie Chicken Wrap. The other breast can be used for another Rotisserie Chicken Pita Wrap or a Hot Chicken Sandwich. Either way you do it, I usually reserve 1 or both breast for these Pita Pocket Wraps.

Rotisserie Chicken Breast

Use one Chicken Breast after cooking up a Rotisserie Chicken for these Wraps. Which will make up two pretty good size Pita Wraps. You can also make this up from scratch Seasoning one Chicken Breast with Rotisserie Seasoning and bake in the oven or grill.

Diced Rotisserie Chicken Breast

Diced Rotisserie Chicken Breast

Just dice them up and add to the Salad or Stuff the Pita with the Rotisserie Salad and place the diced cold Chicken on top.

If you want them heated up, throw them into a pan to heat up over medium heat and add them Hot to the Pita with your choice of Vegetables & Sauces.

Rotisserie Chicken Quarters

Although I really do enjoy Chicken Quarters St Hubert or Swiss Chalet Style. Rotisserie Chicken Quarters can be used instead of Chicken Breasts. Either from previously cooked Rotisserie Chicken or from scratch with Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Quarters baked in the oven.

If you’re making these from scratch, season the Chicken Quarters with Rotisserie Seasoning and Bake in a preheated oven at 375 F for 25 minutes. Flip them over and bake another 20 minutes for a total time of 45 minutes. Then shut the heat off but leave the Chicken in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool to strip the meat off the bone.

Clean and Trim the Chicken Quarters and Season with Rotisserie Seasoning.

Stripped Rotisserie Chicken Quarters

Stripped Rotisserie Chicken Quarters

Strip the Chicken off of the Bone and use to stuff the Pitas cold or heated up in a skillet until warmed through.

Pita Bread

Steam either Homemade or store-bought Pita Bread until soft and tear along the edge to open the Pita Bread up into a pocket along the edge about 40 % of the way.

If there are any tears, place that side up. This is because the side with the most tears you will want to roll into the Pita Pocket and not have that on the outside. Otherwise place the more cooked side of the Pita Bread down with the less cooked side or the eye facing up.

MasterClass Stack & Steam

Steamer Cookware

A good sized Steamer Set large enough to hold the Pita Bread.

You can also empty the water out right after steaming the Pita Bread and reheat the Chicken in the pan for a Hot Rotisserie Chicken Wrap.

Steamed Pita Bread

Steamed Pita Bread

Use a Steamer to Steam the Pita Bread just for a few seconds. You don’t need much water, maybe about 1 Cup. Heat over max heat and when steaming place the Pita bread in for about 15 seconds.

Remove with Tongs and tear along the edge to create the Pocket and separate gently to create the pocket.

Pita Wrap Spreads

There is two main places reserved for specific Spreads. These are Tzatziki & Guacamole or Hummus. The Tzatziki goes on the top inner flap and Guacamole or Hummus goes on the Bottom inside. Any other Sauces are drizzle over the Vegetables.

Tzatziki Sauce

Add Tzatziki Sauce on the top inner flap if using.

Guacamole

This is always added on the bottom, inside the Pocket before any vegetables are added in.

Hummus

The Hummus is spread in the same place as the Guacamole. Either Hummus or Guacamole is used here.

Rotisserie Chicken Pita Wrap Vegetables

The stuffing is pretty much a Rotisserie Chicken Salad, with or without the Rotisserie Dressing and optionally other Sauces used.

Napa Cabbage is a really nice addition to Salads. It’s leafy towards the top, which is the only part we are interested in for the Salad. The Stalk or Stem part of the Napa Cabbage can be saved for Chop Suey, Pork Dumplings, Egg Rolls, and other recipes. Add in any Vegetables you want.

  1. Napa Cabbage
  2. Iceberg Lettuce
  3. Romaine Lettuce
  4. Cucumbers
  5. Shredded Carrots
  6. Onions (Green, Red, White, Yellow)
  7. Bell Peppers (Green, Orange, Red, Yellow)
  8. Tomatoes

Pita Wrap Cheeses

Provolone Cheese and/or Cheddar Cheese are my go to. But other types can include Monterrey Jack, Swiss Cheese, Marbled Cheese or a Three Cheese Blend.

Sliced Provolone Cheese

Provolone Cheese

Slice 1 slice of Provolone Cheese in half for each Rotisserie Chicken Pita Wrap.

Rotisserie Chicken Pita Wrap Sauces

There is all kinds of Sauces you can put on this. Placed into a squeeze bottle and drizzled over the Vegetables. The main Sauce I use for a Rotisserie Chicken Pita Wrap is the Deluxe Sauce.

Deluxe Sauce

This is the Classic Sauce that is drizzled over the Vegetables, with or without the Tzatziki and Guacamole. Combine the below ingredients for the Deluxe Sauce. It’s also excellent for a Burger Sauce on the Deluxe Burger.

Mild Mayo Sauce

Mild Mayo Sauce is very good on Wraps, Subs, Sandwiches and Shawarmas. It combines Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with Red Greek Sauce and a bit of Sriracha Sauce for as Mild or Spicy as you like. I use this Sauce by itself with no additional Spreads or Sauces.

Rotisserie Seasoning

Season the Chicken with Rotisserie Seasoning and use more to season the Rotisserie Chicken Pita Wrap in place of Salt & Pepper.

Typically Salt & Pepper is added to taste. But in the case with a Rotisserie Chicken Pita Wrap more Rotisserie Seasoning can be sprinkled on in place of to add extra flavors.

How to Build a Pita Wrap
