Greek Chicken Wraps

With the weather getting warmer, I've been craving lighter foods on the weekend.  This recipe, for Greek chicken wraps, was inspired by a wrap that I recently had at the airport, of all places.  I love a good lunchtime sandwich, and this was the perfect way to mix things up.

What I liked best about this recipe is that it required minimal time in the kitchen; most of the ingredients were store-bought, and then assembled at home.  My big time-saver was buying a rotisserie chicken, which I cut into large chunks so that the meat wouldn't fall out of the wrap.  Also, although the original version of the wrap that I enjoyed included hummus as a base, I remembered this recipe that I had seen for easy tzatziki sauce in BC's book, Foolproof (page 76), and chose to make that instead.

Greek Chicken Wraps
1 package whole wheat tortillas
1 small head romaine lettuce
1 rotisserie chicken
1 small red onion
crumbled feta cheese
BC's easy tzatziki sauce

Shred rotisserie chicken into large chunks.  Cut red onion into thin rings, and then cut rings in half.

Starting with the tortilla as the bottom layer, begin layering the fillings - one leaf of romaine lettuce, a couple spoonfuls of tzatziki sauce, and then chicken.  Sprinkle red onion and crumbled feta on top, and then fold the wrap.  All ingredients can be adjusted up or down in your wrap, depending on your preferences.  Enjoy!
