Prep Time9 mins
Cook Time12 mins
Total Time21 mins
Servings: 48 chips


  • 3 tablespoons butter salted
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage (also called rubbed sage)
  • 3 pita pockets
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


  • Grab small saucepan and set it on stove over medium heat. Place butter in pan. It will begin to melt and bubble. After 3 minutes, you will begin to smell a buttery aroma and see flecks of brown at the bottom. Once it gets golden brown, add the sage. Cook for 1 more minute.
  • Remove from heat. Add in olive oil and stir to combine. Set aside to prepare pita bread.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Now we will cut the pita pockets into triangles. First split the pita pocket in half. The best way to do this is to take a sharp knife and slice into edge of pita pocket about 1 inch. Continue slicing all around the edge and split open to release halves. Place pocket back together and cut pita in half. Place one half over the other and cut in half again. Repeat one more time so you get 16 triangles.
  • Grab a sheet pan and cover with parchment paper. Brush parchment paper with olive oil and butter mixture until lightly coated. Place triangles on greased baking sheet in one even layer. Lightly brush each triangle with olive oil and butter mixture. Sprinkle with a little salt. Flip chips over and repeat on other side.
  • Place baking sheet in preheated over for 6 minutes until lightly golden brown. These babies brown fast so keep and eye on them. Remove from oven and flip chips over to bake on the other side for 5-6 minutes. Do not let them get too brown!
  • Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before eating. Serve with your favorite dip (my favorite is spinach artichoke) or eat all by themselves!
