Star Anise and Orange Chicken Wrap Recipe


Star Anise and Orange Chicken Wrap Recipe

I recently became bored of the typical flavour combinations that I cook with and decided to venture out. While watching a show that featured Provence, a region of France, I learned that star anise and orange are a popular flavour combination in that part of the world. Since then, I have been playing around with this inspiration and created a Star Anise and Orange Chicken Wrap recipe.

Star Anise and Orange Chicken Wrap Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon grape seed oil (or olive oil)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tsp orange rind
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp ground star anise
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 12 corn tortillas (1 package)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 avocado
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Feta cheese

Star Anise and Orange Chicken Wrap Recipe Directions:

Combine greek yogurt, grape seed oil, orange juice, orange rind, diced garlic cloves, ground star anise, ginger, black pepper, and salt in a bowl. The orange rind will give the sauce a more intense orange flavour.


Chop the chicken breasts into cubes and add to the sauce. Let the chicken marinate in the sauce for at least a few hours. I let it marinate in the fridge overnight.


Add chicken mixture to a frying pan on medium high heat. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain excess liquid and cook for another 5 minutes. Set aside.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook corn tortillas for 3 minutes and remove from oven. I use corn tortillas because they are are gluten-free. However, you can use your preferred type of wrap.

Add some chicken, tomato, avocado, romaine lettuce, and feta cheese. Enjoy!
