Instructions

Wraps:

  1. Prepare marinade and marinate chicken at least 2 hours ahead, up to overnight.
  2. To cook chicken: Heat a large pan or grill (I prefer a grill pan or cast iron; a sautee pan will do!) to medium-high with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.
  3. Slice chicken into long strips (alternately, you can skewer into kabobs for quicker cooking). Once hot, place chicken in an even layer on pan and cook until golden, about 5-6 minutes. Flipping and continue to cook until done (around another 5-6 minutes, depending on the size of your pieces.
  4. While chicken is cooking, prepare tzaziki sauce.
  5. To assemble: layer pita first with lettuce, cucumber, tomato and onion, chicken, olives and feta cheese. Top with tzaziki and enjoy!

Tzaziki:

  1. Grate cucumber and place on top of a paper towel for a minute or two. Squeeze any excess liquid. Combine with remaining ingredients and let sit at least 10 minutes. Season to taste.
