Barbecue Chicken & Rice Wraps

After a long day of work, who likes to spend a lot of time in the kitchen? No one? I thought so! My Barbecue Chicken & Rice Wraps are great when made ahead. I prepare mexican rice on a Sunday along with grilled barbecue chicken. For dinner the following day, I heat up the wraps, rice and chicken, layer it with some coriander leaves, squeeze some lemon and I have dinner ready for my Husband and myself.



1 tbsp oil
2 chicken breasts, butterflied
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 red bell pepper, sliced lengthwise
3-4 stalks of spring onions, chopped
1 red chili, chopped
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups Daawat Basmati Rice, cooked
Tortilla wraps
Coriander leaves
Lemon juice


Heat oil in a skillet and place the chicken breasts. Baste with barbecue sauce on each side and let cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked. To check if the chicken is cooked, poke the thickest part of the meat with a knife and if it goes through easily then it is cooked.
To the same skillet, add garlic and celery and stir. Add bell peppers, spring onion, chili, salt and pepper and stir.
Mix in the rice and let heat up for 1-2 minutes.
Heat a tortilla on a dry skillet, and place on a flat surface. Place a spoon full of rice on the wrap, slice the chicken and add 3-4 slices on top of the rice, some fresh coriander leaves and a squeeze of lemon.
Roll the tortilla and serve.
