For the chicken:
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil juice, 1/2 lemon
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon paprika

For the wraps:
4– 6 pitas
2 cups romaine
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Start by slicing chicken breasts into strips (alternatively you can buy pre-chopped chicken tenders)
In a large bowl add your chicken and top with all marinade ingredients. Stir until chicken is well-coated.
Cover bowl and place chicken in fridge for at least 1 hour to marinate (or overnight, if preferred).

Place chicken strips directly onto grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side (roughly 6-8 minutes total) or until juices run clear.
Place pitas onto grill and grill each side until heated through.
Spread tzatziki onto each pita and top with chicken, onions, tomatoes and lettuce.
