Directions: 
  1. Place chicken in a bowl with all other marinade ingredients. Cover and leave in fridge for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight.
  2. Preheat oven broiler to maximum or heat an outdoor grill. Thread marinated meat onto metal skewers. Broil in the oven or on the grill for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
  3. Heat a griddle or frying pan over high heat with a little oil. Cook zucchini until it just begins to brown, just a minute or two.
  4. Stack each flatbread with chicken, zucchini, a little onion, and tzatziki. Roll up and serve immediately.
Notes: 

For a gluten-free version, use gluten-free flatbreads or gluten-free soft tortilla wraps.
