- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
For the Wrap:
- 4 large whole wheat or spinach tortillas
- 1 cup baby spinach leaves
- 1/2 cup diced cucumber
- 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
- 1/4 cup sliced red onion
- 1/4 cup sliced Kalamata olives

For the Tzatziki Sauce:
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup grated cucumber, squeezed to remove excess moisture

Marinate and Grill the Chicken:
- In a bowl, combine olive oil, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.
- Add the chicken breasts to the marinade and coat them well. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Remove from heat and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing.
Prepare the Tzatziki Sauce:
- In a bowl, combine Greek yogurt, grated cucumber, minced garlic, lemon juice, chopped dill, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.
Assemble the Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Wrap:
- Warm the tortillas slightly, either in a dry skillet or microwave, for about 10-15 seconds.
- Lay out each tortilla and spread a generous spoonful of tzatziki sauce in the center.
- Layer on a handful of baby spinach leaves, followed by slices of grilled chicken.
- Sprinkle diced cucumber, diced tomatoes, sliced red onion, Kalamata olives, and crumbled feta cheese on top.
Roll and Serve:
- Fold the sides of the tortilla over the filling, then roll it up tightly from the bottom, creating a wrap.
- Secure the wrap with parchment paper or foil, if needed, and slice it diagonally in the middle.
- Serve immediately, and enjoy your Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Wrap!
