Ingredients for a healthy chicken greek wrap on a white background.

Chicken: I love cooking my own marinated chicken for this recipe. I use breast meat but skinless chicken thighs would work as well. You can also use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken to save time.

Tzatazki Sauce: We will be using store bought for convenience – my favorite brand is Marketside from Walmart or Spinach Parmesan Tzatziki Dip from Aldi.

If you prefer homemade tzatazki – here is one I like!

Tortillas: I used medium size tortillas. A low carb tortilla, pita bread, whole wheat tortillas, or gluten free tortillas would also be great so feel free to use your favorite.

Veggies: This recipes calls for cucumber, red onion, and tomatoes but you can use whatever veggies you like. Kalamata olives would be a great addition as well.

Recipe Variations

Incorporate slices of avocado or a dollop of guacamole for a creamy texture and a boost of healthy fats.

For a lighter option, bulk up the wraps with more salad elements like olives, bell peppers, and a sprinkle of fresh dill.

Use a lettuce wrap instead of flour tortillas for a low-carb version.

Recipe Tips and Tricks

If time allows, let your chicken marinate overnight. The longer it soaks, the more flavorful and tender it will be.

Before assembling your wraps, warm the tortillas slightly on a skillet or in the microwave oven, covered with a damp paper towel.This makes them more pliable and less likely to tear.

If you’re packing your wraps, wrap them tightly in parchment paper. This keeps all the ingredients snug and the wrap intact until you’re ready to enjoy.

Any leftover chicken or veggies can be tossed into a salad, mixed with quinoa, or used to top a homemade pizza for a quick meal the next day.

How To Meal Prep

Start by cooking your chicken ahead of time, then slice it up and store it in the fridge. Prep all your veggies—dice the cucumber, slice the onion, and halve the tomatoes —then keep them in separate containers.

When you’re ready to eat, all you need to do is grab a tortilla, pile on the chicken, veggies, sprinkle some feta, and drizzle with tzatziki. This is perfect for those busy days when you need a quick lunch or dinner without the fuss.
