Lemon Chicken Wraps with Garlic Tahini Sauce

We have been really busy with end of school stuff here. My oldest is home from college and my middle son just graduated high school and my youngest is moving up from middle to high, so I haven’t had much time to take pics and write recipes…. but hopefully back to it now.

I have been making this lemon chicken wrap for years and we still really enjoy it. I sometimes serve it with homemade pita style bread as the wrap, but this time I used the raw, cook at home tortillas that we love. The chicken in these has great lemon/herb flavor and is delicious, but the sauce is what really makes these stand out.

The sauce is a mixture of mayo/sour cream with garlic, lemon, tahini, salt and pepper, and sriracha. It sounds simple but it is SO delicious. There is something about the particular combo of lemon, tahini and garlic that is perfect together.

I marinate the chicken the day before for these, but if you use store wraps or tortillas they come together really quickly. The crunchy fresh lettuce, red onion and tomato are a must in these too!

To serve:

  • If using raw tortillas, cook according to package. Fill your wrap with some of the sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion and add some chicken. Wrap up and cut in half or serve like a taco if using pita or thicker wraps. Serve with extra sauce on the side, believe me you will want more. 🙂
