Greek Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Tzatziki Sauce are super easy to make, healthy, and refreshing.  They are packed with zesty chicken, cool cucumbers, crisp tomato and onion, and tangy tzatziki sauce.  It’s a burst of Mediterranean flavor!  For us, these are simple weeknight meal.  However, they would make great lunches because you can meal prep ahead of time and they are pretty light vs. filling.

I recommend using bib lettuce, butter lettuce, or romaine hearts.  They bib and butter lettuce create these “cups” for the ingredients to sit in and the romaine lettuce wraps the ingredients together well without ripping.  If a lettuce wrap isn’t your thing, swap out the lettuce for a tortilla.

The recipe can be found here.

Start by making the Tzatziki Sauce.  Add the Greek yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, dill, garlic powder, and salt to a mixing bowl.  Stir to combine.  Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

I’ve found that most Tzatziki recipes are very similar but might have slightly different measurements.  If you have a favorite recipe, feel free to substitute it here.

Next, slice the chicken into 1-inch pieces.  Add the chicken, lemon juice, oregano, parsley, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and oil to a mixing bowl.  Toss to coat.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the seasoned chicken and cook for about 10 minutes or until cooked through and an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached, flipping halfway.  Remove from the heat.

Now you are ready to assemble.  Lay out the lettuce on a serving platter and add a scoop of the chicken mixture to each piece of lettuce.  Top with chopped tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion.  Then, drizzle tzatziki sauce over the top.  Serve immediately and enjoy!

Alternately, you could place the lettuce, chicken, and other toppings on the table and let everyone assemble their own lettuce wraps.  It makes the meal more interactive and hopefully get the kids interested in eating their vegetables!

Happy Cooking!
