While in Scotland I had a few different jobs and one of my favourites was working at a little cafe in a town called 'Mulberries' in Kirkcudbright (which was about 8 miles from my hometown: Gatehouse of Fleet). They served a range of different meals and one of my favourites was the 'cajun chicken wrap'. I used to have it for lunch as it was so quick and easy to make. For the past few weeks all I've been thinking about are these wraps and so I decided to make them and thought it would make a good post.
The good thing is that it takes no time at all and within about 10-15 minutes you've got a delicious yummy lunch.
Chicken (I used breast)
Wraps (original, white)
Mayo (normal (full-fat))
Before I begin I will mention that you can change around the ingredients if you want ... I know some people (*cough* Dave *cough*) may prefer wholemeal wraps than the plain white original kind. Same goes for the mayo - I like the normal full fat one but you could use the garlic flavoured version or the lighter version or whatever you want really.
Please also note for this recipe I don't use measurements - just wing it!!
In a bowl - add some olive oil, a pinch (or grind in my case) of salt and pepper and a good shake of cajun spice. Mix this with a fork. In regards to the chicken you can either cut it into bite-size pieces or big slices - it's up to you.
Add the chicken to the bowl and mix together until the mixture has coated all the chicken.
Using a griddle frying pan, add the chicken to the pan and cook on a medium heat. Make sure to turn the chicken half way through cooking to ensure even cooking. If you have gone with bite-sized pieces then these cook very quickly. Larger pieces may take longer.
While the chicken in cooking - chop your lettuce and rinse in a colander and leave to drain on the side.
This step is optional but I like to coat my wraps in mayo first - you can just put a little dollop in the middle - it's entirely up to you.
Pop some lettuce on top of the wrap and then take the chicken and place on top of the lettuce and then wrap your wraps!
