1 tablespoon parmigiano reggiano
1/4 cup organic low-fat greek yogurt
1/2 cup organic low-fat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

Directions:

  1. Pulse aioli ingredients in a food processor for about 1 minute until mixture is smooth.
  2. Mix aioli with shredded chicken until thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Heat tortilla over stovetop in cast-iron skillet.
  4. Place tortilla on a work surface. Beginning with dry ingredients to avoid sogginess, add a line of arugula, followed by 3-4 tablespoons of chicken mixture. Finish off with 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest and and a dash of fresh cracked pepper. Roll into a wrap & enjoy.
