Mediterranean Chicken Lettuce Wraps and Tzatziki

Check out this healthy version of a Greek pita! However, if you like the bread, just assemble the ingredients into a pita, including the lettuce. The leftover tzatziki also makes a fantastic vegetable dip!

Chicken, grape tomatoes, onions, cheese, olives, and tzatziki flavored with basil, oregano, rosemary, black pepper and dill essential oils in a lettuce wrap on a ceramic plate.

 

Mediterranean Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Servings: 4–6 | Time: 20–30 minutes | Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced into strips
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (A combination of red-wine vinegar and lemon juice tastes great too!)
  • 1–2 drops basil essential oil
  • 1–2 drops oregano essential oil
  • 1–2 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 1 drop black pepper essential oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Butter lettuce or iceberg lettuce leaves
  • Grape tomatoes, halved
  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Tzatziki (see recipe below)
  • Red onion, sliced thin
  • Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped

Instructions:

  1. If making the tzatziki, mix it now so that it can chill while you make the chicken and prepare the wraps.
  2. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add chicken breast strips, and allow to cook.
  3. In a glass dish, combine the balsamic vinegar, essential oils, and salt. Mix until well incorporated.
  4. Flip the chicken, and begin to cook on the other side. Pour balsamic vinegar mix over the chicken, and continue to sauté until the chicken is fully cooked.
  5. Prepare the lettuce and other toppings.
  6. Assemble the lettuce wraps by placing the chicken and other toppings inside the lettuce leaf like you would assemble a taco.
  7. Serve immediately.
