Cajun Chicken Wrap with Roasted Peppers


For those times when you’re clean out of ideas, here’s a no-fuss one-dish meal. All you have to do is grill the veg and chicken. I particularly like having the oven do all the work so I can multitask – by doing the laundry, cleaning up after the kids or updating this blog!

  • chicken fillets, 2
  • red and green peppers, 1 of each
  • large red onion, 1, sliced
  • thick Greek yoghurt or sour cream, as needed
  • smoked paprika, for seasoning
  • cummin, 1 tsp
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  1. First, marinate the chicken fillets with a squeeze of lemon juice, some paprika, cummin and salt and pepper – or use ready-prepared cajun seasoning
  2. Preheat the oven with the grill setting on High or bake at 425F
  3. Grill the chicken and sliced red and green peppers and onions together on a tray lined with tin foil, drizzling them with olive oil first
  4. The chicken will be done in 10 minutes. Depending how you like your peppers, either start grilling them with the onions 20-30 minutes earlier or together with the meat, if you like a bit of crunch
  5. Allow the filling to cool a little
  6. Toast a wholewheat wrap on a heated pan, slather it with some sour cream or thick yoghurt and bung the chicken and grilled peppers and onions on top
  7. Roll it up and allow the yummy juices to dribble down your chin!
