I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Chicken Tzatziki Wraps

Yummy!  I really love these, but don't make them often because they are around 420 calories each.  Having said that, they are very filling and you wouldn't need anything to go along with it.

(serves 4)

*2 tablespoons honey
