Marinate the Chicken:

- Grill the chicken breasts for about 6-8 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the chicken is cooked through.
- Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before slicing it into thin strips.
Prepare the Dressing:
- In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing. Set aside.
Combine All Ingredients:
- Combine the cooked chicken with the chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, and onions.
- Drizzle dressing over the ingredients.
Assemble the Salad Wraps:
- Take a large flour tortilla and place a few spoonfuls of the mixed ingredients.
- Carefully fold the sides of the tortilla in towards the center, then roll it up like a burrito, securing it with a toothpick if needed.
