LIGHT Chicken Slouvaki

FIRST of all...does YOUR costco have these lovely tortillas (you can see the bag in the background)? They are SO high in fiber and LOW in net carbs. For someone watching their weight and blood sugar they are WONDERFUL. They have a great flavor. I have been subbing them for bread or pita. There is so much fiber in them that one fills you up! I found this recipe on the food network awhile ago. It has become a family favorite (and a mama favorite because I can whip it up in 15 minutes)! The recipe is by Sandra Lee but I have made some changes (mostly because I never have 5 bucks to spend on fresh dill :). Chicken Slouvaki

  • 1 Tbsp dry dill

  • 1 Tbsp chopped garlic

  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil (I go a little less)

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken cut in strips or chunks

Mix all but the chicken together then add the chicken. Let marinate 30 minutes to overnight (I am always about an hour). Once you have it to this point it goes QUICK! In a large skillet add chicken mixture. Cook until cooked through (about 10 minutes). While it is cooking you can cut your toppings. We like purple onions, tomato, lettuce, and Tzatziki sauce!

Best (and easiest) tzatziki sauce

  • 1 cucumber seeded and diced fine

  • 1 Tbsp dry dill

  • 8 oz plain yogurt

  • 2 tsp lemon juice

  • 2 tsp hot sauce (I use Frank's sauce. My kids think 2 tsp is too hot (although I like it) for them I go with one)

  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and set in fridge until ready to serve.


  1. This is one we will need to try out.

  2. You know, as I'm thinking about it, this sounds like it could pack well for lunch and just wrap it at the last minute. Yes? I LOVE those tortillas, too. I haven't seen them at my local costco recently, but I know they have them at Sams!

  3. Really sounds good. Love Greek food.
