A staple street food in Greece, souvlaki meat is used to fill gyros pittas, a delicious bread filled with meat such as chicken, pork or lamb; salad vegetables; tzatziki and chips. We ’ve also used Terpsi Goods souvlaki mix for gyros which was the perfect blend and allowed for an authentic Greek flavour! We would like to thank Kerry for this recipe which makes 2-3 wraps:
For the chicken:
2 chicken breasts
2 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons Greek Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Terpsi Mix For Souvlaki
Salt and Pepper
For the Wraps:
For the Tzatziki:
2 garlic cloves
150g Greek yoghurt
For the chicken, mix together the yoghurt, spice mix, olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Spread over the chicken and allow to marinate for as long or as little time as you have.
Put the grill on a high heat. Grill the chicken for around 6 minutes on each side until beginning to blacken (this crispy crust is the best part!)
Meanwhile, prepare the salad vegetables and cook the oven chips.
Make the Tzatziki. Cut the cucumber in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds with a spoon, discard. Put the yogurt into a bowl and grate in the cucumber and the garlic cloves. Add a little salt and stir well.
When the chicken is cooked through, thinly slice or shred with two forks.
Heat a frying pan on a high heat.
Make your wrap: spoon a thick layer of Tzatziki in the centre of the wrap. Top with chicken, onion, lettuce, peppers and cucumber. Add a few oven chips.
Fold the edge of the wrap over the filling and tuck under. Fold in both sides of the wrap and then tightly roll into a burrito shape.
Place in a dry pan for a minute each side to crisp up slightly. Cut in half and serve!
Make it veggie: Use halloumi instead of chicken. Cut the halloumi into 1 inch slices, toss in olive oil and the spice mix, then grill or fry for a couple of minutes each side until golden.
Use hummus instead of Tzatziki
Add some hot chilli sauce for some spice
Use a flatbread or pitta instead of a wrap
