Chicken tikka wraps

These wraps are based on a Joe Wick's recipe I saw years ago, and I've been making them every summer since. They're really easy and tasty, plus you can whack a load of salad in to increase the number of veggies and associated nutrients in your meal.


Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 2 chicken breasts diced

  • Greek yoghurt (0% if you want lower cal / fat)

  • 1 tbs tikka curry paste

  • 1 tbs tikka curry powder

  • Half a cucumber diced

  • Small red onion finely chopped

  • Plum or cherry tomatoes - chopped in half

  • Tortilla wraps - I use wholemeal

  • Mint sauce (optional)

  • Mixed salad bag / salad leaves / fresh coriander - as you prefer or have in your fridge!

  • Skewer sticks - just the wooden ones are fine

Method:

  • In a large bowl, mix 2-3 tbs of greek yoghurt with the curry paste and curry powder.

  • Add the diced chicken and mix to ensure all the pieces are well coated

  • Cover and leave in the fridge to marinade for minimum 20 mins (so do this earlier in the day if necessary)

  • Also pop the wooden skewers (if using) in some water so they don't burn (I've made that mistake a few times)

  • Heat the oven grill or BBQ to high

  • Put about 5 or 6 pieces of chicken on to your skewers

  • Put them under the grill for approx 10 mins or until chicken is cooked through - make sure you twist the skewers so all the sides of the chicken are cooked (BBQ does much quicker than my grill)

  • Mix approx 1 tbs of mint sauce in with 3 tbs of greek yoghurt to make a minty yoghurty sauce

  • Put a wrap on to a plate and in the middle, slide of the chicken pieces, add the cucumber, onion and tomatoes

  • Dollop on some mint yoghurt and add extra salad

  • Wrap up like you would a fajita and voila!


Enjoy :)
