A simple Greek Chicken Wrap features rotisserie chicken, loads of veggies, and a tzatziki-inspired dressing. Warm some pitas and load them with this delicious Greek chicken mixture!

Greek Chicken Wrap

There is no shortage of love for chicken salad on this website. I’ve reimagined it in countless ways, like these Pesto Chicken Salad sandwiches, this Curry Chicken Salad, or these Pineapple Chicken Salad sandwiches to name a few.

A Greek-inspired version was definitely in order. And today, that’s exactly what you’ll get. The dressing is inspired by tzatziki sauce, the chicken salad is loaded with traditional Greek salad veggies, and everything is loaded into pita bread. And, if that’s not enough, we’re finishing things off with a hearty dose of feta and a good drizzle of lemon juice!

There are four components to these wraps — the pita bread, the actual chicken salad, the dressing, and the wrap toppings; I’ll discuss each of these components below.

Pita Bread

To help make the pita bread more pliable and not tear as we fold it, warm it up. I like to slightly char the pita bread– it adds such a nice flavor and contrasting texture to the cool chicken and veggies.

To char pita bread: Spray both sides of the pita bread with olive oil cooking spray and “grill” the bread on the stovetop over the open flame (medium-low heat) until slightly charred, flipping with tongs as needed, about 10-15 seconds per side. Those of you with electric ranges can warm it (covered with a damp paper towel) in the microwave. It won’t char the bread, but it will keep it much more pliable.

Greek Chicken Wrap Filling

The secret to making these Greek Chicken Wraps is using rotisserie chicken! If you can find a lemon-herb seasoned rotisserie chicken, even better — that rotisserie chicken adds such a nice complementary flavor. Here are a few of my short-cut ideas:

Tzatziki-Inspired Dressing

The dressing on these Greek Chicken Wraps is inspired by Greek Tzatziki sauce with grated cucumber and a little bit of Greek yogurt. I tested this dressing a few times (once with all Greek yogurt) and it was a bit overpowering. So, although there isn’t a lot of Greek yogurt in the dressing, we found it to be the perfect amount to infuse the dressing with a nice tzatziki-like flavor without being too strong.

Greek Chicken Wrap Toppings

Greek Chicken Wraps reach new heights with these delicious toppings:

Some other topping ideas: thinly sliced kalamataolives, additional fresh parsley or fresh dill, thinly sliced redonions


A ripe avocado adds immense creaminess to these Greek Chicken Wraps. To make sure an avocado is ripe, press gently around the stem and if it gives, the avocado is ripe. (The “give” should feel like pressing the tip of your nose.)

  • 2tablespoons plain Greek yogurt(we love Greek Gods)
  • 1/2cupgrated English or Persian cucumber
  • 1/4teaspoon EACHfine sea salt and cracked pepper
  • 1tablespoonhoney
  • 1teaspoondried oregano
  • 1largelemon(1 tablespoon lemon juice + 1/2 teaspoon zest)
  • 1/2teaspoonminced garlic
  • 1 and 1/2teaspoons EACH:red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard
  • 1 and 1/2tablespoonsolive oil


  • 4pita breads
  • Optional:Smashed avocado topping: 1 large ripe avocado, 1/8 teaspoon salt, pepper, and garlic powder, 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Lettuce, thinly sliced cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, additional lemon wedges


  • DRESSING: I like to prepare the dressing first so the flavors have a chance to blend. Grate a cucumber with the large holes of a cheese grater. Line a small bowl with a few paper towels (or a clean kitchen towel) and place the grated cucumber on top. Squeeze out as much extra moisture as you can from the cucumber this keeps the sauce from being watery). Once it’s drained, add to a medium-sized bowl. Add in the remaining dressing ingredients and stir to combine. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge until ready to eat.
  • CHICKEN SALAD: Add all of the chicken salad ingredients to a large bowl and mix gently but thoroughly. Using a spatula, add the dressing to the chicken salad. Stir gently to combine.
  • PITA BREAD: «Grill» the pita bread on the stovetop over an open flame (on medium heat) until slightly charred, about 10-15 seconds per side (flipping with tongs). Immediately fold in half after being charred and cover with a clean towel until ready to serve. Alternatively, warm (covered with a damp paper towel) in the microwave.
  • OPTIONAL SMASHED AVOCADO TOPPING: If using avocado, either slice a ripe avocado and add to the pita bread or make this quick smashed avocado blend: Halve the avocado and use a spoon to scoop out all the flesh into a medium-sized bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork. Once mashed, add in the lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Mash again to combine the ingredients. Spread over warmed/charred pita bread.
  • SERVE: Add lettuce on top of the avocado (if using). Spoon 1/4th of the chicken salad mixture on top of the lettuce. Add a few thinly sliced cherry tomatoes and sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of feta cheese on top. If desired, drizzle a lemon over everything. Fold in half and enjoy immediately.


Recipe Notes

Note 1: Many grocery stores offer lemon-herb seasoned rotisserie chicken, and that is our favorite to use in these wraps. For even quicker prep, get rotisserie chicken that has already been pulled from the bones and shredded. It’s usually available in the deli area of the store.
