The first time I had a Mediterranean chicken wrap, I was blown away. Roasted chicken wrapped in a warm pita topped with garlic sauce, hummus, and pickled onions seemed like the perfect combination that I had been missing out for years. It’s still a great wrap that I often crave, but today I wanted something a little different. Taking the idea of a chicken pita wrap, I decided to make my own changes. First, marinate the chicken in a simple but tasty lemon oregano marinade. Second, substitute hummus for green goddess sauce, one of my favorites. Third, add cheese! Not exactly a traditional wrap, but these Greek chicken pita wraps has climbed its way to the top of my list of favorite lunches.

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

The first change I made to my usual chicken wrap is incorporating a marinade. Sure, roasted chicken is great but why not incorporate more flavor by soaking the meat in a lemon oregano marinade? The flavors are subtle but are enough to add zing to the wrap. I prefer sauteing the chicken but you can also roast or grill the meat. 

You can opt to serve this lunch with hummus or babaghanoush but I decided to drizzle some good old green goddess dressing. I first discovered this heavenly sauce at my first restaurant job. Fresh herbs blended with lemon juice and olive oil, this dressing was so good, I could eat it by itself. Everyone has their own version, adding their own herbs, but I’ve found that the majority of them are all delicious in their own way. Make extra sauce and use it as a salad dressing or dip for crudites. 

Purchase good quality pita bread and assemble your Greek chicken pita wraps! Fresh cucumber, tomatoes, and lettuce add freshness to the wrap while the crumbled feta adds a bit of salty tangy goodness. This lunch was so tasty I had it 3 times in one week. Another option? Make falafel pita wraps with the same green goddess dressing for a vegetarian version!
