Chicken Tzatziki Vegetable Wraps
Ingredients Makes: 4 wraps Time: 45 minutes
1 Tbsp avocado oil ~or~ coconut oil ~or~ unsalted butter
2 chicken breasts, chopped into 1-inch pieces
1 tsp honey
pinch of sea salt and pepper to taste
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/4 red onion diced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, de-stem and diced
1 cup tzatziki sauce *See recipe link below
1 cup feta, crumbled
4 tortilla wraps, warmed
Cook chicken. Chop the chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces. In a saucepan over medium heat add some oil or butter and honey and then mix in the chicken breast pieces. Cook chicken for 1 minute or until chicken begins to lightly brown then flip the pieces over and cook the chicken on the other side for 1 minute or until also lightly browned. The chicken should be just about cooked through with very little pink on the inside if any. Remove the chicken from the heat source and immediately cover with a lid.
The chicken will continue cooking through as it retains the heat for a while, and it will also remain moist. Allow chicken to cook off-heat for 5 minutes, then check the largest chicken pieces to verify chicken is fully cooked. Chicken should be cooked through to kill any bacteria, although overcooking should also be avoided as it will make the chicken dry.
Prepare vegetables. Dice the tomato, cucumber, green pepper, red onion and parsley, them gently combine all together in a bowl.
Warm tortilla wraps. Place the tortillas in a dry (no oil) skillet over medium-low heat and cook them for about 30 to 45 seconds on each side. If your tortillas are a few days old, brush them with a little water before cooking them. Keep the tortillas warm by covering them with a slightly dampened, clean dish towel.
Spread out your warmed tortilla wraps and start adding the prepared ingredients. First spread on the tzatziki sauce and then one-quarter of the chicken pieces, followed by one-quarter of the vegetable mixture and the same with the feta.
Fold the wraps up from the bottom first before folding over the sides or folding over one side and rolling it. The wrap can be held together with parchment paper, tin foil or even a toothpick. Just don’t forget the toothpick is there when biting in. Serve immediately and enjoy.
