Chicken with Cucumbers, Lettuce and Tomatoes on Pita

Leftover grilled chicken and store-bought baba ghanoush is used to make this flavorful Mediterranean-style sandwich in a flash. What's baba ghanoush you say? It's a savory salad made with grilled eggplant, garlic, tahini and other seasonings. Even though this is a sandwich, the combination of chicken, eggplant, cucumbers, tomatoes and pita bread make for a filling meal either for lunch or dinner.

Editor's note: If your supermarket doesn't carry pre-made baba ghanoush, try an olive tapenade spread or watch Alton Brown make it and try his recipe.
