Grilled Chicken and Tzatziki Lettuce Wrap with Roasted Chickpeas

This weekend was perfect for grilling and last night, we cooked a big batch of chicken for the week because we are on a mission to save money! Here is a quick and easy recipe for dinner and it also makes a perfect lunch to bring to work since you can prepare everything the night before!

  • Tzatziki (learn how to make here)
  • Chicken breasts
  • Romaine lettuce 
  • Italian dressing
  • Skewers soaked in water
  • Salt
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp spice of choice for roasted chickpeas (I used Garam Masala)

Cube chicken breasts and place in Tupperware container, covering with Italian dressing. Marinate for at least an hour. 

Meanwhile, prepare tzatziki. To make, finely dice the cucumber and squeeze out the juice. You can do this with your hands and then let dry on a towel. Combine diced cucumber, yogurt, garlic, dill, lemon juice salt and pepper and mix everything together. Let sit in the refrigerator for about an hour for the flavors to meld. 

Once you're ready to grill, place chicken cubes on skewers, season with a little salt and throw on the grill for about 10 minutes or until cooked. 

Remove chicken from skewers and assemble lettuce wraps. Dollop tzatziki over chicken and add a few slices of extra cucumber if you like. 

For some added crunch, serve with roasted chickpeas - my new favorite snack! Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and drain and rinse chickpeas, laying on paper towel to dry. Once dry, place in a bowl with olive oil and spice of choice. Pour onto baking sheet and bake in oven for 30-40 minutes.
