Greek Chicken Wraps

14 04 2011

So like I said a few days ago I have been craving Greek flavors.  I have not been able to satisfy that craving until last night when we made an amazing Greek Chicken Wrap.  It is a pretty simple wrap to make and if you plan ahead and barbecue a couple extra chicken breasts you can have wraps the next night, for lunch, or even make a Greek Chicken Salad.

This Greek Seasoning gave the chicken just the flavor I was looking for. I was able to find this stuff at my local Wal-Mart in the spice aisle down by the salt.  It has a mix of dried basil and dried oregano along with a few other undisclosed ingredients. I just sprinkled this on my chicken and barbecued them until done.

I also made some homemade Tzatziki sauce which my daughter loves. If you have never had Tzatziki sauce it is a yogurt based spread with cucumbers, garlic, lemon juice, and dill.  A great spread for wraps or dips for vegetables. I used Greek yogurt which is a bit thicker and stands up better than regular yogurt. If you don’t have time or don’t want to make the Tzatziki you can buy Tzatziki or cucumber spread at your local grocery store.

Take a tortilla (I used a spinach tortilla but any flavored tortilla would work great, or use flat bread, pita, what ever floats your boat) and spread it with the Tzatziki sauce. Place chicken, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, and feta on the tortilla and wrap up. That simple and has great flavor.  My husband even added Kalamata olives to his. Feel free to add onions, peppers, or whatever makes you happy. Enjoy!

Tzatziki Sauce

~ 2 cups plain Greek yogurt

~ 1 cup diced seedless cucumber

~ 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

~ 2 garlic cloves, minced

~ 2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh dill (I didn’t have fresh so I used dried)

~ Salt and Pepper to taste.

In a medium bowl combine Greek yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, garlic, and dill. Stir until well combined. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Chill before serving.

I don’t know what it is but lately I have been craving a nice big Greek salad or Greek flavored chicken with Tzatziki sauce. I guess it has been awhile since I have had that combination of flavors.  So today I am posting a great Greek Salad dressing recipe to put on your Greek Salad. The chicken and Tzatziki will come in a few days so keep your eyes peeled for it.
