Yield: Makes 4 servings.

Heat oil in a skillet and cook chicken and garlic until chicken is done, about 5 minutes. Add cumin, saute for one minute, then add remaining ingredients and cook to just heat through, about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, warm pitas in 350 degrees F oven for 3 to 4 minutes. Spoon mixture into pockets and garnish with sour cream or grated cheese.
