  • 1 pound chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn can use canned (drained or rinsed) or fresh (cooked)
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 head romaine bottom sliced off and leaves washed to remove any dirt

For the creamy jalapeno sauce:

  • 1 jalapeno stem removed, seeded, and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt preferably whole milk
  • ¼ cup fresh dill stems removed
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro stems removed
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lime juiced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Dice the chicken breasts into cubes and toss in the chili powder and garlic salt. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the diced chicken. Cook for ~5-7 minutes, flipping halfway, or until they are completely cooked. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Prepare the beans, corn, tomato, and romaine leaves.
  • Combine the jalapeno, Greek yogurt, dill, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, and salt in blender and blend until smooth.
  • Prepare the wraps by loading up the romaine leaves with some chicken, beans, corn, and tomatoes. Drizzle on the jalapeno sauce to taste.
  • Store the leftovers in separate containers in the fridge for 3-4 days, and enjoy when desired.


You can sub butter lettuce, Swiss chard, collard greens, or iceberg lettuce for the romaine.
