These gyro/wraps taste so light and refreshing. I make these for parties and quick get togethers, slice them up on the diagonal and hold the wrap closed with a tooth pick. In the photo I used tortilla wraps only because they can be folded easily- but they are awesome with pita bread...speaking of pita bread, watch out for my recipe for homemade tortillas, pitas and naan bread that I'll be posting soon. P.S. I used salt and Mrs. Dash's table blend seasoning mix to season my chicken but receipezaar doesn't recognize it.. so I'm mentioning it here- you can use the other seasonings I wrote too.

Directions

  1. In a skillet over med-high heat sauté chicken cubes seasoned with Mrs. Dash`s table blend seasoning or Greek spices, salt and pepper according to your own tastes.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the avocado, tomato, onion and lettuce, set aside. Also, prepare the sour cream by mixing in salt and pepper to taste, set aside.
  3. Once the chicken is done and has a nice carmelized color and the pan has a sticky coating on the bottom, deglaze the pan with 1/4 cup of water or stock and get all the sticky bits off the bottom of the pan. Let this tasty broth reduce and coat the chicken pieces -- this adds so much flavor to the meat you could use this chicken in a meal alone!
  4. Once the chicken has cooled for 10 mins., on a large cutting board dice the the chicken into smaller pieces. This helps to fold your wraps easier later and it evenly distributes the chicken into each bite.
  5. Wrap assembly: On each tortilla put a tablespoon of seasoned sour cream, 2 tablespoons diced chicken, 1 slice of lettuce, 2 tomato pieces, and 2 avocado slices. Close the sides on the wrap and then roll the bottom flap over the top of the ingredients and tuck it in as you roll it up completely.
  6. With seam side down cut each tortilla into half diagonally and secure each wrap shut with a tooth pick.
