Creamy tzatziki chicken wraps

Wraps are an easy go-to for quick lunches or fuss-free dinners. These grilled chicken wraps are a family favorite because not only are they so easy, they’re also drop-dead-delicious. The fantastic thing about chicken wraps is that they are so versatile. Use any vegetables you have on hand (even leftover roasted vegetables are delicious) and throw together a quick sauce to take it to the next level. I took inspiration from Greek Gyros and made a quick creamy tzatziki sauce which is a great addition with the grilled chicken.


  • Chicken. Boneless skinless chicken breasts cook quickly, are economical and are packed with protein. Feel free to use boneless chicken thighs as substitute.
  • Wraps. We love using large tortilla wraps for this recipe but use any wrap of your choice. Low carb wraps are great for a keto lunch.
  • Vegetables: I used tomatoes, lettuce and red onion. Cucumber, julienned carrots, sliced radishes, avocado, roasted corn and bell peppers are all good options for wraps.
  • Sauce: I made tzatziki sauce but Easy Cilantro Sauce, Avocado Sauce or Easy honey mustard sauce will all be delicious.

How to make grilled chicken wraps

  1. Cook the chicken: Slice skinless, boneless chicken breasts in half, horizontally, so that you are left with two thin chicken cutlets. Marinade the chicken in a mixture of olive oil, lemon, oregano, garlic and paprika for at least 30 minutes but up to 24 hours in the fridge. Grill/pan sear the chicken until golden brown and cooked through then remove from the heat and allow to rest.
  2. Make the sauce: To make the tzatziki, squeeze the liquid out of grated cucumber then combine with Greek yogurt, finely minced garlic, dill and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Assemble the wraps: Warm the wraps in a hot pan for a few seconds then add a generous spoonful of tzatziki followed by sliced grilled chicken, tomatoes, lettuce and thinly sliced red onion. Wrap up and enjoy!

Can I make this ahead?

You can make chicken wraps a few hours in advance. Wrap well in foil and serve within 3-4 hours to prevent the wrap from going soggy. All the elements can be prepped in advance for easy meals. The chicken can be grilled up to 3 days in advance and kept in an airtight container in the fridge. The tzatziki will last for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.

Serving Suggestions

Wraps are delicious on their own but adding a side of potato chips or air fryer potato wedges is always a good idea. Corn slaw or creamy potato salad will also be great.
