Chicken Bacon Pitas

Chicken + Bacon is really good. One week for my Sunday dinner, I really wanted to do something with chicken and bacon so I made the following recipe. It developed over a few weeks into one of my favorite dishes. You can also create variations of the recipe for new delicious creations. I have never tried it (yet) but I think it would be good to add hash browns with the chicken, bacon, and onion mixture, and add a fried egg on top -- essentially a chicken bacon brunch hash. Today I added mushrooms and it was delicious. You can also serve it on bread, tortillas, or rolls.

Chicken Bacon Pitas

1 teas cumin
1 teas  rosemary
2 garlic cloves
1 T butter
2 boneless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
½ lb of bacon
2 yellow onions
1 red onion (use another yellow onion if no red onion available)
Mozzarella cheese (or another soft cheese)
Pita bread or rolls

Slice the onions in thin medium long slices. (I usually will slice the onion and then cut the onion in half.) Slice the  chicken breast into cubes. Saute the onions and chicken breast in different pans with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Saute the bacon in another pan. When the bacon is finished, drain the bacon grease saving 1 tablespoon of grease. Then chop the bacon into ½ inch cubes. When everything has finished sauteing, mix together the onions, bacon, leftover bacon grease, and chicken. Add cumin, garlic, rosemary and butter and saute until butter has melted. Stir in the herbs.

Next in another saute pan, heat until hot and then add a cup or so of the mixture (enough to fill a pita) and add the cheese. Stir cheese until melted. Then add to a pita or roll and serve.
