Moroccan Monday Meal

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!

 Moroccan Chicken Salad Wrap


  • 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


  1. 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)

  2. Meanwhile chop cucumber and cilantro and mix in a bowl. Add remainder of ingredients and mix well.

  3. Once chicken is cooked, chop into ½ inch pieces and add to cucumber and cilantro mixture.

  4. 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!

Moroccan Chicken Salad Wrap

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!
