These are Greek wraps made up of tender marinated chicken and fresh lettuce, tomatoes and onions all wrapped in a warm pita bread and topped of with some creamy tzatziki sauce. They are easy to prepare and taste outstanding!

Instructions 

Tzatziki sauce recipe HERE

Pita Bread recipe HERE.

Mix all the chicken ingredients together, cover and refrigerate to marinate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.

When ready to cook, remove from the fridge about 30 minutes earlier to reduce some of the chill from the fridge. Thread the chicken chunks on skewers and grill over a hot BBQ grill until slightly charred and cooked through. Alternatively you can grill them in a pan drizzled with oil on the stove top for about 4 mintues per side or until cooked through.

Remove from the skewers and rest them for a couple of minutes. Then using a sharp knife, slice up the chicken into bite sized pieces.

To assemble, lay out a warm pita bread. Add some lettuce, onions, tomatoes, chopped chicken and a dollop of tzatziki sauce. Fold it in half to hold everything together and wrap it up with greaseproof paper or some foil.  Serve with fries and some extra tzatziki on the side.

Enjoy!

Yes you can, just take care not to overcook the chicken breast as it tends to dry out faster.
