Chicken Tzatziki Wraps

Chicken Tzatziki Wraps – It has ‘chicken kebab’ and ‘chicken gyros’ vibes with minimal effort and maximum flavour! Every time I make these I am blown away by how good they taste. The marinade on the chicken is sticky and sweet, filled with flavours of garlic, oregano and lemon. The kids can load up with whatever salads they like which is always a bonus, but I love the combination of tomato and parsley. It reminds me of a cheats tabouli.

Years ago I ate the best tzatziki of my life in a Greek restaurant in Santorini and I was determined to recreate it at home. And this is the product of that venture. The flavour of this tzatziki is INCREDIBLE and it is well worth the extra effort, but store-bought tztaziki or hummus are great substitutes if you are wanting to make this an even faster dinner for busy weeknights. Try the chicken with these two ingredient flatbreads or simply load up some store bought wraps. These are fantastic for entertaining (make them ahead), busy weeknight dinners or for long, relaxing weekends. These Chicken Tzatziki Wraps are sure to land on your weekly dinner rotation! 

  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 4-6 1x


Units Scale


  • 500g chicken thigh fillets, trimmed
  • 1 tsp garlic, freshly minced
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp regular paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  • 1 small cucumber, grated and excess juice squeezed out
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1 cup plain greek yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic, freshly minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt

To serve

  • 4 wraps – Try this two ingredient flatbread recipe
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced


  1. Combine the chicken ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine using your hands or tongs so that the chicken is evenly coated in the marinade.
  2. Combine the tzatziki ingredients, set aside.
  3. Heat a large, heavy based skillet on medium-high heat and cook the chicken for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through and golden. Turn regularly during cooking and add 1/2 cup of water in the final 2 minutes of cooking or sooner if needed (see note 1). Slice the chicken into strips, tossing it through the juices in the pan or leave it whole. 
  4. Serve the wraps topped with tzatziki, parsley, tomatoes, the cooked chicken and red onion.


Note 1 – The water will help to deglaze the pan and will help to create a sticky, caramelised glaze on the chicken. If the chicken is starting to caramelise very quickly and stick to the base of the pan, you can add the water sooner.

MAKE AHEAD – Marinate the chicken up to 24 hours prior to cooking. The tzatziki can be prepared and refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

LEFTOVERS – Refrigerate leftover chicken for up to 3 days. Reheat until piping hot.

    Wow this meal is amazing! The family had already said they want it added to the meal rotation. I was just going to buy the wraps but I made the effort to make them and they were very filling and so easy!
