Garlic & Cheese Lebanese Lettuce Leaf Wraps

I love Lebanese food but there is always so much bread items on the menu or I dont have time to stop in for take away on my way home from work and explain that I want a chicken, cheese, garlic and no bread wrap but wrapped in a lettuce wrap.. Im sure you know where Im coming from!

So tonight I have made my own version of a delicious Lebanese chicken, cheese and garlic wrap all wrapped up in a fresh lettuce leaf! Well leaves, as I had 3!

Ingredients:

  • 300 grams of chicken breast cooked and shredded
  • 3 Lettuce leaf cups
  • 100 grams of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 x teaspoon of crushed garlic
  • Moroccan Spice

Garlic Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder
  • 200g whole egg mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed garlic
  • salt and pepper

METHOD

Making the garlic sauce: 

  • Add the whole egg mayonnaise, crushed garlic, salt & pepper and cumin powder into a bowl and mix well.

Cooking the chicken and making the wraps

  • Cook the chicken breast and season with spices to your liking.
  • Once the chicken is cooked shred it into pieces
  • place the chicken on a plate so its all flattened out.
  • cover the chicken with the garlic sauce – add as much as you would like
  • cover the chicken with the mozzarella cheese
  • put in the microwave for 40 seconds so the cheese and sauce melt through
  • Scoop out the chicken mixture into your 3 lettuce cups, wrap them up and enjoy!
