The tasty recipe can be made even cheaper if you buy all ingredients in bulk and double the recipe. Freeze leftovers individually for a quick weekend lunch kids can microwave themselves. Top pita halves with chicken, barbecue sauce and cheddar cheese for a quick busy-night dinner that will satisfy everyone. Add vegetable dippers and you're good to go with minimal fuss. The cost per serving (about $1.20) makes this easy on the wallet as well.
