Spread the pita bread on a flat work surface, smear with a thin layer of mayonnaise and sprinkle evenly with chicken meat. Then make a grid of mayonnaise on the surface of the meat, put the fried mushrooms and onions, and the next layer will be cheese.
After pita bread, roll into a roll preferably very carefully, so as not to tear the sheet, but as closely as possible. Beat the egg, mix with one spoon of mayonnaise, brush with this mixture the surface of the roll, which should be laid out on a baking tray laid with baking paper.

The calorie content of the dish depends on the selected products, so in order to reduce it, you can choose dietary mayonnaise, add fresh vegetables. And no matter how I would like not to resort to tips on making a roll, you should still remember that:
- Any products need to be finely crushed – there will not be tearing of the sheet of pita, which should be chosen thin for quick soaking;
- Cheese for a dish to take a solid or semi-solid variety – will melt faster when served hot, but for “gluing” several layers of pita bread you should choose melted or cream cheese;
- You do not need to lay out a large number of cucumbers and tomatoes when stuffing – they will let the juice, and the roll will burst, disintegrate;
- It is not necessary to use mayonnaise for a real roll – it is better to quickly prepare sour cream sauce (buy Bechamel sauce), which will well soak the dish with its flavor.
The roll can be stored in the refrigerator for a very short time, but the products for it are stored separately for much longer. Just put them and twist the pita bread – a tasty and very filling dish will be ready in a few minutes..
