Ingredients

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice or juice from 1/2 of a fresh lemon
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme 1 tsp. dried
  • 1 tsp. each dried sumac and oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil divided
  • 2 c. grape tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic sliced thin
  • 1 red pepper sliced thin
  • 1/2 sweet onion sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint more if you'd like some for a garnish
  • 2 c. lightly packed baby spinach
  • Whole grain tortilla or flatbread wraps
  • Tzatziki sauce - about 1 Tbsp. per wrap

Instructions

For the filling

  • Place sliced chicken in medium-sized bowl and stir in cornstarch till all pieces are coated. Add lemon juice, thyme, sumac, oregano, salt, black pepper, and garam masala. Mix well and set aside.
  • Place grape tomatoes into a small bowl and add the sliced garlic and 1 tsp. of olive oil, stirring to mix well.
  • Heat the remaining 2 1/2 tsp. oil over medium to medium-high heat in a non-stick skillet that has a cover. Do not cover. Add chicken and cook, stirring frequently, about 3 to 4 minutes. Push to one side and add pepper strips and onion slices. Continue cooking another 2-3 minutes, gradually mixing everything together in the pan.
  • Stir in mint, grape tomatoes and garlic and cook until tomatoes and slightly softened, about 2-3 minutes. Spread spinach on top of the chicken/vegetable mixture. Cover and remove from heat. Let sit 2 minutes, then remove cover and gently fold everything together.

To make the wraps

  • For each wrap, spread about 1 Tbsp. Tzatziki sauce on the wrap. Add desired amount of the chicken and vegetable filling. Starting at about 1 inch from the bottom, fold in the tortilla wrap, then starting on one adjoining side, roll the wrap together. Serve immediately.
