 You guys, this little website right here is totally lacking something. A creative director, a food stylist/photograph, a marketing guru and plenty of recipe developers…? That would be my dream team to build the Not Enough Cinnamon brand! Maybe in a few years? It’s definitely on my wish-list!

But right now…I’m only referring to Lebanese food 😉 I can’t believe I’ve only shared one Lebanese recipe on NEC: the famous and delicious tabbouleh and one is never enough for such an amazing cuisine! It’s time the shake things up and bring you another Middle Eastern classic!

These Grilled Lemon Chicken & Hummus Wraps are the perfect light lunch or healthy dinner – packed with protein from the lemon-drizzled chicken and the hummus. You can use homemade or store-bought hummus for these easy wraps and as they can be prepared in advance, it’s the perfect meal to take to the office, on a road trip, hike or picnic.

Funnily enough, I didn’t realize that these Grilled Chicken & Hummus Wraps were kinda Lebanese-inspired wraps. Then, as I wrote the recipe down, I put two and two together and, yeah…hummus + za’atar  + grilled lemon chicken wrapped in pita bread…could not be more Lebanese than that!

Speaking of za’atar, are you guys familiar with it? It’s like a magical spice blend made of sumac, sesame seeds, cumin and oregano. It’s my new obsession and it totally takes these chicken & hummus wraps to the next level, don’t skip it!

You can buy za’atar it in some supermarkets or in Middle Eastern stores. Or you can just make your own like I did. You’ll find the za’atar recipe in the notes below. You’ll want to sprinkle it on everything once you’ve tried them in these hummus wraps!

For vegan hummus wraps, simple swap the grilled chicken for marinated and grilled or pan-fried tofu or tempeh!

Recipe Notes

Za'atar is a delicious Middle Eastern spice blend. You can find it in some supermarkets and in Middle Eastern stores.

You can also make your own by mixing together 1 tablespoon oregano, 1 tablespoon sumac, 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Too easy!

You can use leftovers rotisserie chicken instead of grilled chicken.

  1. These wraps sound like a must-make. I have loved za’atar for probably 15 years now. Pita smeared with olive oil, then sprinkled heavily with za’atar and toasted is heavenly, long one of my favorite snacks. I just happen to have a bottle of za’atar that I’ve done nothing with, so I think you’ve solved the problem of its loneliness… 🙂

    1. The Spice House in Geneva Illinois has it . I use it in my humuus and in salads. It makes salad taste like you are in Turkey!
