Quick Mediterranean Chicken Pita Wraps Recipe With Homemade Ranch Dressing

This chicken pita wraps recipe is my favorite! I intentionally make additional chicken tenders for dinner just so I can make this the next day. 

I also like to purchase my pita from a Mediterranean restaurant. Some places also make whole-wheat pita, just ask. It's OK to use prepared ranch, too. This pita sandwich recipe is more about assembly and making an easy peasy meal to feed the family and give us cook a break in the kitchen.

Cuisine: Mediterranean
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe homemade ranch dressing, prepared and chilled (or use store-bought ranch)
  • 1 recipe oven-baked chicken tenders or chicken nuggets, sliced
  • 4 pieces pita bread
  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 English cucumber, washed and sliced then quartered
  • 2 fresh Roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 - 6 leaves leaf lettuce

Here's how to make it:

  1. Prepare the ranch dressing and set it to cool in the fridge. 
  2. Prepare chicken nuggets. Turn off the oven.
  3. Place the pitas in the oven wrapped in a very slightly damp kitchen towel until ready to assemble.
  4. Lay one warm fresh pita on a warm plate. Drizzle a teaspoon of tahini all over the pita and swirl around with the back of the spoon. Add the lettuce leaf, then top with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Add the sliced chicken.
  6. Smother with ranch dressing and fresh cracked black pepper. Serve immediately. Each person can pick the pita up, fold over and enjoy!
