It’s probably not a surprise that I loooove mediterranean flavors, but I’ve always been too intimidated to attempt a chicken shawarma wrap at home. Until now! After being super impressed with Wild Garden’s Persian and Turkish marinades, I decided to try their shawarma one – and it did not disappoint. I love that it barely needs to marinade and you’ve got super bold flavors ready to go! Cooking made EASY.
I’ve also been wanting to make my own tzatziki for a while… and I honestly don’t know what took me so long! Seriously, all you need is a handful of simple ingredients and a few minutes. It’s bright, creamy and flavorful – the perfect addition to this (or any!) wrap, sandwich or snack platter.
I served my wrap with a Wild Garden’s couscous pilaf. I personally like sprucing it up a bit with some extra tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions.
You guys HAVE to make this, ok? And please let me know when you do!
- 1 pound chicken
- 1 packet of Wild Garden Shawarma Marinade
- 2+ tortillas/wraps
- 4 tomatoes on the vine
- 2 cucumbers
- 1/2 red onion
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp dill
- 1 lemon
- 1 garlic clove
- Pour the marinade over the chicken and let sit for 10-20 minutes.
- Add the chicken to a hot pan and lower the heat to medium. Once cooked through, shred the chicken into pieces that can easily fit into a wrap. Turn off heat.
- Start making your tzatziki sauce by grating 1/4 cup of cucumber. Squeeze any excess liquid out of the cucumber and add to a bowl. Add 1 cup greek yogurt, 1 tbsp chopped dill, the juice of 1 lemon and 1 finely chopped garlic clove. Stir to combine.
- In a separate bowl, combine chopped or diced tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion.
- Start assembling! Generously spread your homemade tzatziki sauce on the wrap. Place chicken on top and finish with the tomato/cucumber/red onion mixture.
- Tightly wrap and cut in half.
