It's been pretty hot here recently (not summer hot, yet, but hot nonetheless), and I've been reminded of how much I dislike using my stove and oven in the summer. So we're having more salads, sandwiches, and food cooked outside on the grill. I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try with a few modifications. The results were wonderful and my family enjoyed it! The best part was that it didn't heat up my house at all because it's all cooked out on the grill!
Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Wraps
Red onion, sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices
Red bell pepper, sliced into rings
1 zucchini, sliced lengthwise
Ground black pepper
Wraps, pitas, or tortillas (we used whole wheat lavash bread)
Feta cheese, crumbled
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Season chicken breast with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place on grill; cook for 4 to 8 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. While the chicken is cooking, brush or drizzle onions, bell peppers, and zucchini with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Place on grill until the first side begins to soften and get grill marks; flip and cook until tender-crisp.
Remove chicken and veggies. Cut chicken into bite-sized chunks and give veggies a rough chop. Season veggies with salt and pepper to taste if needed.
Spread wrap, pita, or tortilla with hummus, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges. Place chicken and veggies in a strip along on edge of wrap. Top with desired amount of feta and roll up. Serve immediately and enjoy!
