An easy chicken wrap (aka "shaurma")

Pin It

You might be wondering what "shaurma" is? Well, in many places in Russia you can find little booths that look similar to this:


These men make absolutely delicious, juicy and scrumptious chicken wraps. The meat is marinated and slowly cooked for days. I have to be honest, my version of this delicious treat is a sad duplicate..But it's very easy and still tastes pretty good :)

SO YOU WILL NEED:

Flour tortillas
Chicken breast
Tomato
Cabbage
Cucumber
Grated carrot (optional)
1 TB ketchup
1 TB mayonnaise
1 clove of garlic

HOW-TO:

First, cook chicken. I love to use leftover grilled chicken cooked using the "marinade" I shared with you yesterday. Or you can just fry it in a pan with just a little bit of oil:

Then chop your veggies. I purposefully didn't put the measurements because it's really up to you but I personally like a nice amount in my "shaurmas":

Now we'll prepare the sauce. For it, just smash a garlic clove with a garlic press (or mince it nicely), then mix it together with mayo and ketchup.

Now take a dry frying pan. Do not use oil! Reheat it on medium heat. Warm up tortillas, one at a time, for about 15 seconds, then spread a little bit of sauce over it and add filling. Then roll and enjoy! So easy but really-really good! If I say so myself :)

  1. I think I'll give this a try when we get ripe tomatoes. My husband likes anything in a tortilla, so I'm sure he would like this.

    1. Yeah, I think that's how they sell gyros there too. Or in Asia.

  7. You had me at flour tortillas, chicken and tomatoes! I know it's probably more work than you'd like to, but home made tortillas take literally no time at all to make, and I swear they're super tasty. Maybe it's because we don't have any decent or good mass-produced tortillas here in MD, but the ones we have are just awful enough to discourage use!
