It is easy to make pita chips yourself at home. All you need is some leftover pita bread (the pocket pita kind) and the microwave.
Here are the directions for homemade pita chips recipe:
Cut pita into small triangles (the triangles should be the size of the chips).
Separate the chips into 2 parts by opening the pocket of the pita (see illustration below), then tear to make 2 triangles:
Put pita triangles on a large plate in a single layer. It is very important not to overlap them, otherwise some chips will end up soggy.
Microwave the plate of pita pieces for 1 minute. Check to see if they are crunchy. If not crunchy, keep microwaving it in 30 second increments until the chips are crunchy. Enjoy your homemade pita chips!
