Delicious Greek Chicken Wraps
If you’re stuck for an idea for dinner tonight then you could try this delicious recipe for Greek Chicken Wraps. The chicken is first marinated in a white wine, lemon and herb marinade and then grilled on the BBQ as skewers. Pita wraps are prepared by heating through in a pan with a little olive oil and herbs to give a sensational “crunch” to the wrap. The whole chicken wrap is finished off with fresh toppings: the freshness of the lemon, the zingy taste of the tzatziki sauce, and a little heat from a Jalapeno pepper gives these wraps a zippy, light, summery flavor.
This recipe serves 2 people. I hope you enjoy!
- 2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
Prepare the chicken breasts by cutting evenly into 1” cubes.
- 2 Cups Dry White Wine
- 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- 1/3 Cup Water
- Zest of 1 Lemon
- 1 Tbsp Thyme
- 1 Tbsp Basil
- 1 Tbsp Oregano
To make the marinade, combine these ingredients in a bowl.
Add the chicken and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to allow for all the flavors to come together.
Meanwhile, prepare all your delicious toppings.
- Crisp Romaine Lettuce, washed and roughly chopped
- ½ Red Onion, very finely chopped
- 1 Jalapeño Pepper, seeded and very finely chopped
- 1 Medium Vine-Ripe Tomato, chopped
- Fresh Tzatziki Sauce
Assemble Skewers & Grill Chicken
Preheat your grill to 375F. Soak wooden skewers in cold water for a few minutes and then thread the chicken cubes onto them. Grill the chicken skewers for approximately 20-25 minutes, turning about 3 times.
Squeeze fresh lemon juice onto the skewers while turning them. In the last couple of minutes of cooking, grill a couple of slices of lemon to accompany the kebabs.
- 2 White Greek Pitas
- Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan and add the pitas (one at a time), turning to coat both sides with the olive oil. After 1-2 minutes they should be nicely warmed through with a little crispness to them. This gives the wraps a really good “crunch” when you bite into them.
Before removing the pita, sprinkle on a little fresh or dried herbs and salt and pepper to taste and then transfer to the serving plate.
Assemble the Wraps
Now here comes the good bit. There’s no right or wrong way to assemble your delicious Greek Chicken Wrap. I usually remove the chicken from the skewer first, and then add all the toppings that I want, finishing with a good dollop of tzatziki sauce and a squeeze of warm lemon juice from my slice of grilled lemon.
Roll in the sides to wrap it all up and then tuck in!
