  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ lbs boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • cup fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 ½ lemons, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 2 cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 head butter or romaine lettuce
  • feta cheese, microgreens and kalamata olives for topping

Basil Pistachio Sauce

  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • ½ cup roasted pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, halved and seeds removed
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • In a large ziplock bag, combine 3 tablespoon olive oil, chicken, garlic, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano, lemons, salt and pepper. Marinate in fridge for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Dump the entire bag of chicken onto a 9x13 baking dish. Mix in peppers and onion. Roast in oven for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.
  • While chicken is cooking prepare the sauce. Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until combined. Add extra water if sauce needs to be thinned. Taste and add more salt if needed.
  • To assemble wraps, get a piece of lettuce and add chicken. Top with peppers, onion, cucumbers, avocado, olives, microgreens and cheese. Generously top with the basil pistachio sauce.
