Ingredients

Chicken Breasts

  • 1 Large Chicken Breast
  • Salt & Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp Rosemary Dried
  • 1 tsp Oregano Dried
  • 1-2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Medium Lemon

Greek Yogurt Dressing

  • 5 tbsp Greek Yogurt
  • ¼ cup Parsley Fresh Flat Leaf, chopped
  • 3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice

Lettuce Wraps

  • 1 Large Orange optional (not included in nutritional calc)
  • 5-6 Sun-Dried Tomatoes drained
  • 3 Baby Romaine Lettuce Heads
  • 8 Artichoke Hearts drained
  • 1 Spring Onion

Instructions

  • Season the chicken breast with salt, pepper and the herbs. Pour some olive oil onto a skillet or frying pan and cook on both sides until it’s cooked through.
  • Cut the artichoke hearts in halves and place them the cut side onto the same skillet/frying pan or grill pan. Add lemon juice to the pan. Cook the artichokes until they are nice and brown.
  • Meanwhile prepare the yogurt dressing: Combine the yogurt, chopped parsley, olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl and mix with a spoon until combined.
  • Peel the orange, cut into segments and then into small pieces. Slice the sun-dried tomatoes. Wash and pat dry the lettuce leaves. Cut the spring onion.
  • Arrange all the ingredients (including grilled and sliced chicken breast and artichokes) inside the leaves and drizzle over the yogurt dressing.

Notes

This meal is great for meal planning if :
  1. you use a jar to seal the dressing and refrigerate. This should last for up to to 10 days. 
  2. You make the lettuce wraps the day within a few days of making. This part takes less than 5 minutes.
