Moroccan Garbanzo Pita

I've been saving this recipe for summer, because it's cool and refreshing. Try it! And if you don't, just lie to me and say you did.

Pita Pockets
1 tbl ground cumin
1 tea. chili powder
1 lb. cubed chicken
4 tbl. olive oil
2 cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas) drained
1 c. green onion- chopped
1 gr. bell pepper- diced
1/2 c. fresh parsley- chopped
sour cream

Combine cumin, chili powder, and chicken into a plastic bag and shake to coat.
Heat 1 tbl. olive oil in skillet and add chicken- cook for 5 mins. Remove from heat.
In separate bowl, combine beans, 3 tbl. olive oil, green onion, pepper, and parsley. Add chicken.
Cut open pitas. Line pita pockets with sour cream and fill with bean mixture.

Note: easily make this dish vegetarian. exclude chicken, 1 tbl. olive oil and cumin. Combine all ingredients and fill pockets.
Also tastes great with tabasco sauce, salsa, or shredded cheese.
