Simple and quick chicken rolls
After being on call for 24hours for my O&G rotation, my whole system was screwed. My poor little tummy was doing back flips throughout the night. I was hyper though when i got home in the morning. A little adrenalin from the pregnant ladies in labour sneakily sipped into me i guess. i felt great and felt like i could go on for another 24 hours without sleep. However, once my heavy head hit my large fluffy pillow, i was in zzz land faster than my preparation of my 2 min instant noodles. When the little princess woke up all she wanted was a yummy but quick dinner!
My freezer was over packed with chicken and i decided to make a simple chicken roll.
-A packet of Lebanese bread rolls
-2 chicken breast
-2 table spoons of 'tikka masala'
-2 tablespoons of fresh yogurt
Just marinate the chicken breast with the tikka masala and yogurt for about 10 minutes and grill it. I have a grilling hot pan which i used and grilled it for about 10minutes.
i was in the mood for something with a little spice kick and used tikka masala but you can grill your chicken anyway you like it.
Next , cut the chicken into thin strips and put aside. Spread a little salsa and yogurt onto your Lebanese bread and decorate it with fresh lettuce and tomatoes or what ever u wish like adding and not to forget your chicken.
The hardest part of this roll is actually rolling it up. A little tip that i have picked up along the way is to roll is up in foil and it STAYS!
I'm a really clumsy person and the kind that can not eat a proper yiros without half of it ending up on the floor and this works miraculously.
I can't eat my dinner without vegetables and decided to use up my asparagus . I just pan-fried it with olive oil and pepper and it went well with my rolls.
These rolls are really easy to make and a good pick-up and run lunch meal. Try adding cheese and grilling it with your favourite filling..yummylicious is all i can say.
