DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

  3. While the chicken is cooking on the stove top, wrap the 8 pitas in foil and place in oven.  Heat for 15 minutes.
  4. Cut each pita in half.  Tear lettuce into pieces and line each of the halves with the torn lettuce.  Stuff each half with the teriyaki chicken, sliced cucumber and halved tomatoes.  Drizzle remaining sauce into each pita.
