Middle Eastern Chicken Wraps

I have always loved Middle Eastern food, probably because when I was 10-12 years old, my father was stationed in Teheran, Iran.  I just love Greek tabouleh and hummus and prepare these simple dishes often.  Last week we had some leftover grilled chicken and I decided to make a delicious wrap for our lunch.  We were eating these in under 30 minutes!  Due to the Joseph’s Lavash Wraps having four product, this recipe is not suitable for Atkins Induction.

Many more delicious low-carb recipes can be at your fingertips with your very own cookbooks from LOW CARBING AMONG FRIENDS, Volume 8, by Jennifer Eloff, Chef George Stella of Food Network fame, and myself.  Volume 8 is almost completely comprised of my recipes! But George Stella and Jennifer Eloff are also including several tasty new delights to try in this latest Volume 8! You’ll LOVE these delicious recipes, so order yours (Volume 8 or ANY of our cookbooks) from Amazon  or our direct order site: amongfriends.us/order.php.  For a limited time, there is free shipping if you order 2 or more cookbooks on the same order.  Remember, they make GREAT birthday or holiday gifts!  If you’ve already purchased a book, take a moment and drop by the our Amazon page and  leave your personal review on the latest book.  Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂

    Peggy- Is there a way we correspond by email/telephone? I am in the process of starting an “ecumenical” food company making life easier for busy folks to lead a low carb life. In your honor, I’d like to name our Italian line after your dog (assuming you are approving) when we get to that point. Without engaging in too much flattery, I will tell you that I frequently have used your recipes in my house and as we look to ideas for recipes to be commercialized I find myself again looking to your site for inspiration on all manner of things.

    I’d love it if we could talk.

    PS My mom was a teacher too. Jr High science when she was young and 5th grade for almost 30 years after her youngest start kindergarten.

    1. Craig, I’m so glad you enjoy my recipes. That’s what I created this blog for. But I really would prefer you not use my dog’s nickname the hubs created and that my recipes not be commercialized in any way or be associated with any site but Low Carbing Among Friends, for whom I post “gratis” for my good friend Jen Eloff. Part of my arrangement with Jen and her publisher is that they have exclusive rights to my recipes until I chose to sever my relationship with them. I said to myself and my husband 9 years ago I would have no part of site advertising, commercializing of my recipes in any way. For this reason I have on several occasions refused to affiliate with several of the top low-carb on-line on-line vendors. I really just want my blog medium to be an open window into my kitchen and for the blog to not have any association with any products/sites other than Low Carbing Among Friends. I thank you for your interest and hope that you will continue to follow my cooking experiences, successes and fails with me.
