88. Chicken Wraps



These are fab for a barbie, we had them at the beach yesterday for Fathers Day although my Dad won’t eat them cause they’re a ‘bit weird’ for his taste; he stuck with a hot dog, no sauce 🙄

Everything is made in advance so all you’ve got to do is grill the chicken skewers then stuff them in a wrap with a tangy feta sauce and a chopped salad with fennel seed dukkah for a bit of crunchy spice. Perfect outdoor hand-held fodder.

For 4:

300g chicken thigh or breast fillet

50g feta

100g plain yoghurt

2tbsp mayonnaise

1/2 clove garlic, crushed

Juice of 1 lemon

4 large soft wraps

For the salad:

1 cos lettuce

1 avocado

2 inch piece cucumber

4 radishes

1 small shallot

8 cherry tomatoes

2tbsp chopped fresh mint and parsley

For the dukkah:

2tbsp fennel seeds

1tsp coriander seeds

2tbsp sesame seeds

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1tsp sea salt flakes

Black pepper

Cut the chicken into 1inch pieces and thread onto 4 skewers, drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside until ready to grill.

Mash the feta with a fork and mix with the yoghurt, mayo, crushed garlic and 1tbsp of the lemon juice til smooth. Season to taste and set aside.

To make the dukkah toast the fennel and coriander seeds for a couple of minutes in a dry frying pan until they release their aroma then tip into a mortar and bash with a pestle until coarsely ground. In the same pan toast the sesame seeds carefully until lightly golden then tip into the mortar with the spices, add the ground cumin, salt and a grinding of black pepper and give everything a good mix.

To make the salad, shred the lettuce, cut the avocado into small chunks and finely dice the cucumber, radish, shallot and tomatoes. Toss together with the herbs, 2tbsp of the dukkah mix, the rest of the lemon juice, and a good glug of olive oil. Taste and season.

Heat a grill, bbq or frying pan and cook the skewers over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes turning frequently until a golden crust has formed and the chicken is cooked through.

Spread each wrap with a spoonful of feta sauce, a handful of salad, and the chicken from a skewer before wrapping up and digging in.
