Indian-Spiced Chicken Wraps

The original recipe called this Chicken Schwarma.  We thought the flavor was delicious, but not really like any schwarma we've ever tasted.  I think I would have preferred the chicken on a flat bread or naan instead of pita.  But the yogurt sauce was fantastic and went very well with the flavor of indian-inspired flavor of the meat.

Chicken and Marinade:
1 large chicken breasts
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves

Yogurt sauce:
7 oz. cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp dried dill
1/4 tsp salt

In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade.  Add chicken, coat well, cover and refrigerate for 4-24 hours.  If desired, slice the chicken into strips before marinating to maximize the flavor.

Prepare the yogurt sauce for the sandwiches.  Combine all ingredients.  Refrigerate until ready to use.

After marinating the chicken, grill until cooked through.  Serve with yogurt sauce and desired vegetables on pita or flat bread.
