Back in high school, I spent a considerable amount of time at Baker’s Square. If not scarfing down a piece of banana cream pie, I always ordered a chicken teriyaki pita. I’m not sure what it was about the dish, but that taste has always stuck in my mind. I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, so I decided to create my own version of the throw back meal.
Chicken Teriyaki Pita
1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
1 TBSP olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
1/2 C shredded carrots
4 slices Provolone cheese
1/2 C teriyaki sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a skillet pan or wok, heat olive oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Cook chicken 3-4 minutes on each side. Add peppers, onion, carrots and garlic powder. Stir until vegetables soften, about 5-6 minutes.
Meanwhile, lay pitas on a baking sheet. Place two pieces of provolone cheese on each pita. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melty and bubbly.
Add teriyaki sauce to pan, thoroughly coating all ingredients. Heat through, about 2 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
Spoon chicken and vegetable mixture on top of pita and serve.
This meal is best eaten with a knife and fork, though I am sure you could make it work with hands only.
An easy, weeknight meal you can whip up in 30 minutes or less! And it really did take me back to my high school days at Baker’s Square. Now for some banana cream pie…

I love anything teriyaki, even if it’s not an Asian related dish! This sounds fabulous and very cool that it’s one of those dishes that brings you down memory lane!
This looks mouth-watering! I can’t wait to try it out! Thanks for the recipe!
Awesome recipe, I’ll be making this on saturday. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you. Stir fry pita is a favorite of mine and my 92 yer old mother’s. Sadly the Boston Market by us closed and I’ve been looking for a copycat recipe for it. Can’t wait t try this and surprise my Mom.
I worked there and made these (also in high school) and still make them today at home. Missing from the Veg are pea pods, broccoli, and mushrooms. Swiss cheese is used in the restaurant. So good.
