Pita Crusted Chicken

I use whole wheat pita crumbs instead of regular bread crumbs to coat this chicken. Much lower glycemic index and it tastes really good! Coating: 1 whole wheat pita blended into crumbs, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp dried oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Cut chicken breasts into larger strips and coat with whole wheat flour, dip into bowl of beaten egg whites, and coat with crumb mixture. In a large skillet heat 2 TB olive oil over medium high heat and cook strips until golden on both sides. Place on cooking sheet and place in 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
