  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon , zested and juiced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the Tzatziki sauce:

  • 1/2 large English cucumber , unpeeled
  • 1 cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 small garlic cloves , finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt , or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill

For the wraps:

  • 4 large tortilla wraps , I used whole wheat but any work
  • 2 cups lettuce , chopped
  • 1 small red onion , thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup Kalamata olives , sliced

Instructions

Chicken marinade.

  • Combine the marinade ingredients except the chicken in a large ziplock bag. Add the chicken in the marinade and gently massage it.
  • Marinate, refrigerated, for at least 3 hours but preferably overnight.
  • Heat a grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush it with oil. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 15-20 minutes until cooked through and internal temperature reads 165 F. Remove from heat and cover with foil for 5 minutes. Slice the chicken into thin slices.

Tzatziki sauce.

  • Grate the cucumber and drain through cheesecloth sprinkled with a pinch of salt overnight or at least a few hours.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and salt. Stir in dill and grated cucumber. Chill in refrigerator until ready to use.

Chicken wrap.

  • Heat tortillas in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, or until warm. Layer 1/4 of each: lettuce, red onion, tomatoes, feta cheese, olives, cooked chicken on the tortilla and top with some of the tzatziki sauce. Roll up the tortilla. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas.
