Herb & Garlic Chicken Wraps

Cornichons and their pickling liquid combine with yogurt to make a tangy spread for these wraps. Don't have cornichons? Use olives, pickled onions or dill pickles instead.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 pound chicken cutlets

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 small clove garlic, grated

  • ¼ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cornichons, plus 1 teaspoon cornichon brine

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, basil and/or dill

  • 4 (10 inch) whole-wheat wraps

  • 1 cup pea shoots or alfalfa sprouts

  • ½ medium cucumber, julienned

  • 2 cups mixed greens


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, flipping once, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes total. Reduce heat to medium and add lemon juice and garlic. Cook, turning the chicken and scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan, until the liquid reduces and coats the chicken, about 1 minute. Let cool, then slice into strips.

  2. Meanwhile, combine yogurt, cornichons and their brine, and herbs in a small bowl. Place wraps on a work surface and spread the yogurt mixture over the wraps. Top with the chicken, pea shoots (or sprouts), cucumber and greens. Roll up like a burrito.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
