Baked Pita Chips
(makes 72 chips)
6 6-inch (15 cm) pita breads
olive oil cooking spray
fire roasted garlic juice (optional)
- With a sharp knife, cut each pita bread in half, then each half into 3 triangles. Gently pull apart each triangle to separate it into 2 pieces, getting 12 triangles per pita bread.
- Preheat oven to 375Â°F (190Â°C), Gas Mark 5.
- Lay the triangles in a single layer on a large nonstick baking sheet. (Depending on the size of your baking sheet, you make need to bake them in two batches.) Lightly coat triangles with cooking spray and spritz lightly with garlic juice (if using).
- Bake for about 7 minutes, until pita begins to color. Turn pitas over and continue to bake until crisp and golden brown, about another 5 minutes. Store in airtight containers or self-sealing plastic bags.
