It’s totally been one of those weeks, guys. I didn’t get to my meal prep this week, but I did prep the ingredients for these Greek Chicken Wraps. Because of all the chaos, this is more of a “semi-homemade” recipe. I bought flatbread and hummus from the store (Aldi) instead of making my own Naan and hummus, and the cost of the convenience definitely showed in the final price of the wraps. But guess what? Eating on a budget is always a give and take situation. Sometimes you give on the price and take on the convenience. And in the end I still made enough food for six sandwiches for about the same price as one lunch out. ;)

Meal Prep It!

Each of the elements of this wrap sandwich will stay good in the fridge for 3-4 days so I can quickly and easily build a sandwich on demand. And if you’re trying to do low-carb for the new year, just throw these ingredients onto a bed of crunchy Romaine instead of into a wrap and you’ll be good to go. It’s like a shawarma salad!

Ingredients

Garlic Marinated Chicken Thighs

  • 1/4 cup olive oil ($0.52)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice ($0.18)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced ($0.24)
  • 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano ($0.15)
  • 1/2 tsp salt ($0.02)
  • Freshly cracked pepper ($0.05)
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 1.8 lbs.) ($5.47)

Dill Yogurt Sauce

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek style yogurt ($0.58)
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill ($0.05)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice ($0.02)
  • 1/4 tsp salt ($0.05)

Wrap Ingredients

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes ($1.99)
  • 1 cucumber ($0.99)
  • 1/4 red onion ($0.15)
  • 6 pieces flatbread ($2.29)
  • 10 oz. container hummus ($1.79)

Instructions 

  • Prepare the garlic chicken marinade first. In a gallon-sized zip top bag or shallow dish combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper. Add the chicken thighs, close the top of the bag, and massage the ingredients to combine. Let the chicken marinate for 30 minutes.
  • While the chicken is marinating, prepare the dill yogurt sauce. In a small bowl combine the Greek yogurt, dried dill, lemon juice, and salt. Set the sauce aside
  • Slice the grape tomatoes in half, dice the cucumber, and thinly slice the red onion. Place the red onion in a bowl of ice water and let it soak for 5-10 minutes to take the sharp edge off the flavor. 
  • After the chicken has marinated for 30 minutes, cook the chicken thighs in a skillet over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until well browned and cooked through. Cook the chicken in two batches to prevent over crowding the skillet, which will prevent browning. Transfer the cooked chicken to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • To build the wraps, smear each flat bread with a couple tablespoons of hummus, pile some sliced chicken on top, then top with a handful of tomatoes, cucumbers, and a few slices of onion. Add a few dollops of the dill yogurt sauce, wrap the bread around the filling, and enjoy!

Marinate Chicken Thighs In Garlic and Lemon

Begin with the garlic chicken marinade, since you want the meat to marinate for at least 30 minutes. In a gallon-sized zip top bag or a shallow dish, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup lemon juices, 3 cloves of garlic (minced), 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp salt, and some freshly cracked pepper. Add six boneless, skinless chicken thighs, close up the bag, and mix everything together until the thighs are well coated. Let the chicken marinate for 30 minutes.

Dill Yogurt Sauce Ingredients

While the chicken is marinating, prepare the dill yogurt sauce. Combine 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt with 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp dried dill, and 1/4 tsp salt. 

Dill Yogurt Sauce Mixed

Mix it all together and set the sauce aside.

Chop cucumber tomato onion

Slice one pint of grape tomatoes, dice one cucumber, and thinly (very thinly) slice 1/4 red onion. If you’re looking for something to do with the rest of your red onion, try making pickled red onions! They’re amazing.

Soak Red Onions

If you find red onions to be too strong for you here is a cool trick: soak them for 5-10 minutes in ice water! It really takes the edge off. Another tip is to slice them as thinly as possible. That’s SO important with red onions.

Cook Garlic Lemon Chicken

After the chicken thighs have marinated, cook them in a skillet over medium heat, for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until they are very well browned and cooked through. I suggest doing it in two batches because if you over crowd the skillet they will stew in the juices and will not brown.

Slice Chicken Thighs

Transfer the cooked chicken thighs to a cutting board, let them rest for about 5 minutes, then slice.

Spread Hummus on Flatbread

To build your wrap, smear a couple tablespoons of hummus onto a flatbread…

Add Chicken to Flatbread

Add some of the sliced chicken…

Add Vegetables to Flatbread

Add tomato, cucumber, and red onion…

Add Dill Yogurt Sauce

Then add some of that yummy dill yogurt sauce! That’s my favorite part.

  1. I made these for the first time last night and the chicken was ah-mazing! I used low carb tortillas instead of flat bread and the whole family loved them. Definitely going into my regular menu rotation. 

    1. Wanted to add, I grilled the chicken outside instead of sautéing it because it is so hot here right now and I wanted to avoid using my stove. 

  2. Made this last night and it was absolutely delicious! Although it is pretty difficult to mess up chicken thighs haha. I added cucumber to the yogurt sauce to make it tzatziki sauce and used lettuce and tomato for the wraps. I also bought my flatbread from Aldi. It was rectangle shaped and very pita-like. I’m just happy to have made something my daughter will eat. Thank you

  3. These are delicious, I used pita wraps instead of the flatbread as shown and its really yummy. I also forgot to buy cucumber, but I love it anyways. The chicken marinade is pretty good too, I think letting it marinade longer will help.

  4. I rarely cook chicken, but this method has me SOLD! I didn’t have enough lemon juice so added yogurt to make up the difference. Accidentally added double the salt. Still incredible. Didn’t have dried dill for the sauce, so added some thinly sliced cucumbers and a little pepper to it; worked just fine. Thank you!!

  5. This was really great. Thanks for the recipe. My husband, kids, and I all liked it a lot. I made it as written. Thanks–I’ve made several of your recipes and all of them are hits! :)

  6. Made these for my lunches this week (with some edits), and while they are delicious, I have some notes to share: I used regular cucumbers (peeled and deseeded) and roma tomatoes (deseeded and chopped) because those were on sale, and both subs ended up working fine. I tried using whole wheat tortillas instead of the wraps (due to costs) and the tortillas just fell apart. I think a good sun would be pita, but they’re smaller so may get more wraps out of this recipe. I left out the hummus because I forgot to buy it and ran out of time to make it, but the wraps still tasted good so feel free to use it/not use it. I definitely think the sauce should be doubled if you’re not using the hummus, and the salt amount in the sauce (and maybe the chicken) should be increased accordingly. Overall, this was a really light but satisfying lunch option, and I’ll definitely be making it again
