Make

  1. Heat up oven to 400F / 204C. Toast flat breads or pitas on a sheet pan for 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Heat up a skillet or saute pan over medium heat. Add oil and then red onions to heated oil. Saute for ~2 minutes.
  3. Add chicken with cumin, paprika and oregano. Saute for another 2 minutes, just to warm chicken up.
  4. Add red wine vinegar and saute for another 30 seconds and remove from heat. Season to taste with some salt and pepper.
  5. Assemble wraps with chicken, tzatziki, tomatoes, romaine and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Drizzle remainder of tzatziki over tomatoes and romaine that cannot fit into wraps and enjoy as a side salad!

Easy enough but an overall meh meal. I'd do something else with the rotisserie chicken I think.

Fell in Love with this! We eat it quite often and especially on our meatless fast days. Yum!

I liked that this was fairly quickly, but it was only so-so, by the relatively high standards of other Cook Smarts recipes!

I wanted to love this, but was underwhelmed. I tried using brown rice tortillas to make it Gluten Free, but should have gone with a better flatbread option. I forgot the lemon squeeze, I think the chicken needed that, it was a bit dry. I preferred the Vietnamese salad over this one.

Very flavorful. I cheated and bought tzatziki instead of making it, and the flatbread I bought was too thin and fell apart. Next time I'll find thicker one.
