Preparing Your Chicken Wraps

Many years ago I had a wrap similar to this one at a well known restaurant chain. Although they no longer carry it on their menu, I always loved having it. The original version was much less healthy with sun dried tomato mayonnaise. I decided to make this a little healthier by using Greek yogurt instead of the mayonnaise, however adding the sun dried tomatoes adds a nice, unexpected flavor.

Preparing for your chicken wraps is very easy. In fact this recipe is so easy that you will have dinner on the table in about 30 minutes.

Ingredients

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/4 cup of sliced Greek (or black) olives (I like the saltiness of the Greek olives but black olives are a little more kid friendly!)

1/2 cup of Feta cheese

5-6 sliced sun dried tomatoes

4 whole wheat tortilla wraps

**Cavender Seasoning

Garlic Powder

Directions

  1. Trim chicken breasts of visible skin and fat.
  2. Season each side of the breasts with the Cavender Greek Seasoning and Garlic Powder.
  3. Place the chicken on a grill, panini maker or in the oven. I like the grill marks on my chicken breasts so I start them on our panini maker for about 10 minutes and then finish them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10-15 more minutes.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, you can prepare the fresh tzatziki sauce using the provided recipe.
  5. Chop up the olives, feta cheese, lettuce, and slice the sun dried tomatoes into long, thin strips. Set aside until for assembly of your wrap.

**Cavender is a Greek seasoning that is delicious on meats and in soups. I find it at my local grocer in the spice aisle. If you cannot find it, it is available on amazon.

Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1 cup of Greek yogurt (If you don't have or can't find Greek yogurt, plain yogurt will work it will just be thinner)
  • 1-2 Tbs. of fresh lemon (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup of diced cucumbers (I like to chop mine a little larger because I like the crunch of the cucumbers.)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 clove of diced garlic

This is an easy version of tzatziki sauce that can be used for many other wraps or sandwiches.

Assembling Your Chicken Wraps

Assembling your wrap is quick and easy. Simply follow these steps to a tantalizing taste of flavors!

  1. Once the chicken has finished cooking, let it rest for about 10 minutes to allow the juices to settle.
  2. Slice the chicken on an angle into slices that are about 1/2 inch wide.
  3. Place 3-4 slices of chicken on a wrap. Then spoon the yogurt dressing onto the wrap.
  4. Sprinkle the lettuce, feta cheese, olives, and sun dried tomatoes on the chicken. Note: I did forget to buy the sun dried tomatoes for this recipe so you will not see them in the picture but don't forget to add them like me! They are a great addition.
  5. Fold opposite ends of the wrap in about one inch. Then roll the wrap from one of the remaining open ends to the other end and cut in half. Your wrap is now ready to eat, enjoy!

      Thanks Gordon. They are a family favorite and so easy to make, especially if you have leftover chicken already in the fridge. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      It is a great change to your standard chicken wrap. I stumbled upon Cavendar years ago and it has been a great additions to many dishes. It is usually easy to find if you know to look for it! Thanks for commenting leann2800.

      This looks amazing. I think it's great that you addressed what Cavendar is. I love looking up new recipes online but I do find that there is frequently an ingredient that I really don't have a clue about. Thanks for sharing.

      Cardelean,

      I actually went to school in Farmington Hills, then moved to Sterling Heights right at 19 and Schoenherr. It's always amazing to me the places that I run into fellow Michiganders. Funny though, we all tout our home the same, with utmost pride; really like no other people I have ever run into. Cheers my friend.

      Bryan, you not only grew up in the best state in the US but you literally grew up in my neck of the woods. I also grew up in Sterling Heights (I went to Ford) and now live just south of Romeo in Washington. Yes, Greektown is the BEST! Hope you enjoy it.

      Fantastic Movie Master. I hope that they are a hit in your house, they certainly are in mine!

      Sounds and looks fantastic Cardalean. I think we will have this for dinner next week. In agreement, I also have a profound affinity for Greek food which also comes naturally from being raised in the Detroit area (Farmington Hills then Sterling Heights more specifically). Cannot wait to try this one. Nicely put together page too. Cheers.

      Interesting Flora. My husband and I honeymooned in Greece about 13 years ago and I didn't find that to be the case at all. Maybe it depends on the area in Greece that you are visiting. Hope you give these a try, no olive oil involved!

      We love Greek food here too. ALL of it! Let me know how it works out for you.

      What time is dinner? LOL Seriously, I was checking FB before going to bed and saw this so I knew I had to stop by and check it out. I love Greek food - the tzatziki sauce, feta cheese, of course Baklava!! I'll have to give this a try.

      I've had chicken wraps before but not Greek style. I was in Greece about ten years ago and everything was drowned in olive oil-even the baklava tasted of olive oil.
