3. Broil the chicken about 4 inches from the heat for 3 minutes. Turn chicken tenders over with with a set of tongs. Continue to broil until cooked through, about 2 minutes. Remove the chicken tenders from the broiler. Leave the broiler on.

4. When chicken tenders are cool enough to handle, thinly slice them. Set aside.

5. Arrange the pita rounds, rough side up, on baking sheets.

6. Toast the pita rounds under the broiler until barely golden around edges, 30 to 45 seconds.
