Sauté the onion, garlic and the diced tomato in a pan.
Add the chicken broth and bring to boil. Add the xinohontros and cook on low heat. If necessary, add water until the xinohontros is a soft and thick mixture. When ready, season to taste and let it cool.
Add the egg and mix thoroughly until it has blended well. Evenly spread a layer (as thick as a pita bread) of xinohontros on a baking sheet. With a round cookie cutter, cut out in a diameter a little smaller than that of a pita bread and then fry in olive oil. In the meantime, bake (or grill) the pita breads, until golden brown.


Serve in layers A tablespoon of sauce, one mini pita bread, fried xinohontros and a few thin slices of chicken. Add another tablespoon of the sauce, sprinkle with graviera cheese flakes or cubes and decorate with half or a whole pita bread.
