Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a saucepan over medium heat melt the butter with the garlic and salt.

Step 2

Using a small sharp knife, cut each pita bread horizontally along outside edges, gently separating each pita bread with hands into 2 flat discs.

Step 3

Preheat broiler. Place 4 pita halves, insides up, in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush pita halves with melted butter mixture. Broil until pita halves are toasted and golden brown, watching carefully to prevent burning. Repeat with remaining pita halves and butter mixture. Cool completely. Break pita halves into 2-3 inch pieces. Place pita chips in serving bowl.

Step 4

****pita chips can be made 8 hours ahead; cover and let stand at room temperature.

YUMMY. I used whole wheat pita and served the pita chips with hummus. It was like a super crunchy garlic bread. We loved it!

Delicious garlic flavored and so crunchy chips. Great served with dip. Prepared and done in no time. I plan to keep these on hand to pair with many other things for snacks and appetizers.

This was a perfect way to use pita bread that I had in the freezer! These chipies were a perfect marriage with artichoke spinach dip. Heck, they were perfect for eating them on their own. I experimented by adding a light sprinkling of salt and garlic powder after they came out of the oven. Yum! Thank you ellie for sharing. Made it for Billboard tag.

I was trying to think of what I wanted to go with a shrimp dip I made for lunch and this fit the ticket. They were crunchy and tasted great, adding flavor to the dip as well. Great to use with so many things!

I made a southwest dip that needed a sturdy chip for dipping so I thought this would be the perfect time to make these. They were delicious! Crispy and crunchy, and held up well with the juice from the veggies in the dip. Delicious and easy to prepare, they only take minutes to make!
