It’s Monday! Albeit not a meatless Monday for me, but a delicious Monday!
I am pretty sure my father loves that I am posting as often as I am so far. I believe this is my fourth post for July. Yay!
So for today’s meal I – as I have for the past couple recipes – used a Mexican-like wrap to “house” my food. But it was far from a Mexican meal.
Today is all about Morocco! The joys of international cuisine! I got the recipe from here, but kept radishes out of it!
- 1 (238g) breast of chicken
- ½ (74g) cup cucumber, chopped
- 1 ½ Tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped
- 1 can (150g) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 Tablespoon lime juice
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 3 teaspoons Greek yoghurt
- 1 teaspoon mayonnaise
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ½ bag (50g) of mixed lettuce
- 3 medium wraps
Season chicken breast with salt and pepper and place on a frying pan that is lightly coated on oil and fry until thoroughly cooked (approx. 6 minutes)
Meanwhile chop cucumber and cilantro and mix in a bowl. Add remainder of ingredients and mix well.
Once chicken is cooked, chop into ½ inch pieces and add to cucumber and cilantro mixture.
Spread mixed lettuce on medium wrap and add a few tablespoons of the chicken salad onto the lettuce, fold bottom first, then fold left and right “sides” and enjoy!
I love the taste of cilantro in meals. It adds an extra freshness to it. Yummy!
This is actually really really good. And as easy as you just chop a few things and fry chicken for a while. It is perfect and really delicious. Cilantro and cumin are so so wonderful.
I think you should all try this recipe and enjoy it just as I have! It is one of the best chicken salads I have honestly ever had!
And if you don’t speak Arabic spoken in Morocco:
Enjoy your meal!
