Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Wraps
These healthy, flavorful wraps boast a marinade that keeps the chicken juicy and tender. They make great picnic fare (just keep chilled until serving) or a satisfying lunch. This recipe makes 2 wraps.
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 15 minutes
For the chicken/marinade:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2" thickness
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 burrito-sized flour tortillas
2 tablespoons store-bought hummus
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
8-10 strips roasted red bell peppers
1/2 cup Feta cheese, cubed
Handful of fresh parsley leaves
Marinade the chicken: Combine olive oil, lemon, paprika, oregano and salt in a nonreactive bowl. Place chicken in a glass baking dish and pour marinade over chicken. Massage marinade into chicken with your (clean) hands, making sure to cover all of the chicken breasts with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and no more than 2.
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Place chicken on grill and cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping once in the middle of cooking. Remove chicken from pan and let sit for about 5 minutes to cool. Slice chicken into 1/2" strips.
To assemble the wraps, place a tortilla on your work surface. Spread tortilla with 1/2 of the hummus. Arrange 1/2 of the parsley, peppers, cheese and onions over the hummus. Place 1/2 of the chicken slices over in the center of the tortilla. Fold ends up and wrap tightly. Secure with a toothpick if you like. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately or wrap in parchment paper and chill until ready to eat.
