Greek Chicken Wraps are loaded with veggies, seasoned grilled chicken and Tzatziki sauce all wrapped inside a warm flatbread. These are delicious!
I found my new favorite lunch- these GREEK CHICKEN WRAPS! Holy moly, talk about delicious. They are loaded with lots of veggies and seasoned grilled chicken all wrapped inside a warm flatbread. These are another flavor-packed lunch or dinner that is actually good for you! I can’t tell you how nice it is to eat food that’s healthy and tastes amazing! 😀
This was my first time ever eating a Greek wrap or gyro, as they’re often called. After the first bite I was kicking myself for not trying them sooner. They were so easy to prepare and even my kiddos ate them! (Of course Kallen picked out the onions but that was fine by me!) The Greek Tzatziki sauce is a must when eating these heavenly things. I can’t even pronounce the name correctly, but I sure can eat it! It is so good and gives a nice balance to all the flavors going on inside.
Just a quick note. The Tzatziki sauce takes some prep time, about 2 to 3 hours. So just be sure to plan ahead of time. I made my sauce in the morning and then it was ready to serve with the wraps at lunch time. 🙂
I hope you give these amazing Greek Chicken Wraps a try soon, friends. They are SO good!
