Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 wholegrain wrap
  • 4 chicken breasts , chopped

Marinate

  • 2 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 handful coriander leaves
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp lime or lemon juice

Salad

  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 3 carrots, grated
  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • 1 lime, juice of
  • 1 tbsp honey

Instructions

  1. To 2 tbsp natural yogurt, add the marinate ingredients. 
  2. Stir the yogurt mix fully mixed and the yogurt is an even, yellow colour, then add to chicken pieces. 
  3. Stir to fully coat the chicken in the marinate, then cover with cling film and place in the fridge to marinate, for a minimum of 1 hour, but ideally a few hours or overnight.
  4. Once your chicken is marinating, prepare your salad. Begin by grating the carrot and setting aside on some kitchen roll to dry out slightly.
  5. Roughly chop the red onion, tomato, chilli, coriander and tomato. Then add this to a bowl with the grated carrot, honey, and the juice of one lime. 
  6. Mix thoroughly, then cover with clingfilm and place in fridge until ready to make your wraps.
  7. Once the chicken has marinated (an hour, or overnight, depending on how much time you have), heat a large pan and add some oil. I chose to cook with fry-lite today, but use whichever oil you have to hand (vegetable or sunflower).
  8. Add the chicken to the hot pan, and on a medium heat, cook until the meat is cooked throughout. 
  9. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside - ready to assemble your wraps. 
  10. Layer the chicken and carrot salad (and any additional sauces you'd like - I added some garlic mayo here) on to a wholegrain wrap and enjoy!
