These souvlaki wraps with spiced chicken are packed with punchy garlic and aromatic spices. This simple solution for leftover chicken is perfect sharing food for friends – a winning combo of delicious and easy. Souvlaki is a traditional Greek style of preparing meat or vegetables by cooking them on a skewer – named because the word souvlaki literally means skewer. We’ve done a bit of a cheat by using pre cooked chicken and tossing it in spices to get similar results in much less time! Souvlaki wraps are usually served in a pitta or flatbread, with a selection of salads and sauces. We’ve used creamy tzatziki and fresh tomato, cucumber and red onion to accompany the juicy and flavourful chicken. Perfect for a quick and easy mid week meal.
For the chicken marinade:
- 4tbsp olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2tsp cumin
- 1tsp smoked paprika
- 1tsp ground coriander
- 1tsp ras el hanout
- ½tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 lemon, juice and zest
For the wraps:
- 500g cooked chicken, either leftover or rotisserie
- 4 flatbreads
- 200g readymade tzatziki
- 1 tomato, diced
- ½ cucumber, diced
- 1 red onion, thinly sliced
- Few sprigs of dill, to serve
- Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl. Shred the chicken into large chunks and coat it in the mixture. Leave to marinate for an hour to let the flavours develop, if you have time.
- Sprinkle the onion with a little salt and leave to soften while you cook the chicken.
- Bring a large frying pan to a medium high heat and add the chicken. Cook until hot through and golden, about 10mins.
- Warm the flatbreads, top with tzatziki, the spiced chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and dill.
