Garlicky parmesan pita chips
SmartPoints® value per serving
Pita bread dipped in egg whites and flavored with olive oil, basil, garlic, salt, and oregano and Parmesan cheese makes a quick appetizer or snack that has just a 5 minute prep time. The chips bake to a crispy doneness in about 15 to 17 minutes. It’s best to make these chips within an hour or two of serving. These chips make for a flavorful snack but can also be teamed with a yogurt or bean dip, or they can be served in lieu of bread with a main meal. They make a great side for a Mediterranean salad or Greek chicken.
