• 1 teaspoon salt
• Pinch or two black pepper
• ½ teaspoon dried oregano

• Arugula greens

• Spicy Garlic Sauce (recipe below)
Grilled Lemon Chicken Flatbread Wraps, and That Golden-Hued Evening Sky
-Put the cubed chicken into a medium-size bowl, and drizzle about 2 tbsp of olive oil; add the garlic, in addition to the rest of the ingredients up to and including the paprika, and using your hands, toss all the seasonings/spices well to coat the chicken.
-Using 4 bamboo skewers, skewer the chicken so that there's equal parts of meat on each skewer, and enable the chicken to marinate for approximately 20 minutes, or even overnight, if making ahead.
-When ready to grill, put a grill pan over medium-high heat (you can surely use your outside grill, too ), and drizzle in a little oil; after the oil becomes hot, put the chicken skewers to the pan, and cook them for about 6-8 minutes, turning them occasionally so they get somewhat charred on either side, or until cooked through; let them break, lightly covered with foil, for about 5-10 minutes; then, remove the chicken cubes from the skewers and set aside.
-To build, add just a small drizzle of the Spicy Garlic Sauce on the flatbread, followed by the greens; then, add a few slices of tomato, and about one skewer-worth of the lemon chicken; drizzle on a generous quantity of this Spicy Garlic Sauce, and fold the sides towards the center to form a"wrap" (you can also use some parchment paper or foil to hold it all together, if you want ).

Spicy Garlic Sauce Ingredients:
• ½ cup mayonnaise
• ½ cup sour cream or full-fat, plain Greek yogurt
• 3 cloves garlic, pressed through garlic press
• 1 tablespoon tahini
• 2-3 teaspoons sriracha (I used a lot more since I like mine spicy, so use your own judgement!)
• 1 teaspoon salt
• Pinch black pepper
• Pinch cayenne pepper (again, you can use more, if you like it spicier)
• ½ teaspoon lemon juice

-Add all ingredients to a medium-size bowl, and whisk together until completely smooth and creamy; use immediately, or keep in the fridge, covered. (I like to put mine in a plastic squeeze bottle, and keep any leftovers in the fridge to use for other sandwiches, or as a tasty condiment.)
