Greek Chicken Tacos

I have partnered with Flatout to create these Greek Chicken Tacos. I have been compensated for my time commitment to work with their product, however my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. 

Greek Chicken Tacos

I’ll get right to it: I’m obsessed with these Greek Chicken Tacos and I honestly think you will be too. They’re easy to make, they’re super flavorful and they are a great way to change up your #TacoTuesday! When Mr. Bites and I were visiting London last month we went to a market that had street food vendors and I was immediately drawn to the Greek stand to get a warm chicken pita. It ended up being one of my favorite meals from our trip and I couldn’t wait to make something similar when I got home. These Greek Chicken Tacos have all the same fresh flavors with the Mediterranean seasoned chicken, the Feta-yogurt spread and the topping of juicy, crunchy vegetables. As an added bonus I found that my favorite Flatout Foldit flatbreads are perfect in place of the pita for a much lighter meal that is every bit as delicious. The texture, thickness and size of the Foldits couldn’t be better as the base for these Greek Chicken Tacos, and now I can’t wait to try them with other taco fillings!

In addition to being fresh, delicious and super easy, each of these tacos is just 138 calories or 3 Weight Watchers SmartPoints! What a calorie/points bargain, right? I love using Flatout flatbreads in my recipes (if you’ve followed my blog for a while you already know this) because in addition to being delicious and versatile, it’s easy to find the perfect flatbread for your needs. Low carb, low cal, high fiber, high protein – they have it all! The Foldit flatbreads I used in this recipe are perfect for sandwiches, tacos, snack flats and even desserts! We always have them on hand for quick and easy lunches and dinners.

Greek Chicken Tacos

Yield: 12 tacos

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz crumbled Feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 lb raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
  • 6 Flatout Foldit Artisan Flatbreads (I used the Traditional White)
  • A few torn lettuce leaves
  • ¼ cup diced cucumbers
  • 6 kalamata olives, chopped
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, chopped

Directions:

  1. Combine the Feta cheese, yogurt, lemon juice and crushed red pepper flakes in the bowl of a food processor and process for 3-5 minutes until smooth (you may need to stop it once or twice to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula). Remove the mixture from the food processor and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, bring the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, basil, oregano and rosemary and stir into the oil. Cook for a minute until fragrant. Add the chicken to the pan and stir to coat in the oil and herbs. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-6 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Using shears or a knife, slice each Foldit in half at the seam to make two rounds. Mist a griddle pan or large skillet with cooking spray and place the Foldit rounds on the pan. Mist the tops with cooking spray and cook for about 2 minutes. Flip the rounds and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the Foldits are warm and lightly browned. *If you’re not serving all the tacos at once, just warm as many Foldits as you re using.*
  4. To build each taco, start with a warm Foldit round and spread about 2 teaspoons of the Feta spread down the center. Top with a couple small pieces of torn lettuce and then add 1 ounce of the cooked chicken. Top the chicken with a teaspoon of diced cucumbers and a half an olive (chopped)and half a cherry tomato (chopped) and serve.

    Where can you find these Flatout Flatbreads. I have never seen them. If not found would Pita work.

    It says these tacos are 3 smartpoints each. Does that include the flatout bread or must I add the 3 points for it? Thanks.

      All the ingredients listed in the recipe are always included. Each taco is on half a foldits. Hope that helps!

    These were just awesome! So flavorful, and a really easy meal to put together. A hit with both my husband, who doesn’t love chicken, and my picky six year old.

    These tacos were sooo good! We love tacos at our house and this was a nice change from the same old taco. My husband loved them so much there were no leftovers!

    Made this tonight and it was a hit! Next time I’m going to try it in a pita and add some red onion.

    These were so easy and really good. I made 12 thinking I’d have some left overs for the week but my family loved them so much I’ll need to come up with something else for my weekly dinners.
