Ingredients

For Chicken Tortillas

  • 1 boneless chicken breast piece
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp Sprig Tangier spice blend
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ½ tbsp lemon juice

For stuffing

  • ½ cup yellow bell pepper
  • ½ cup red bell pepper
  • ½ cup mushrooms
  • ½-1 cup grated cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

For Chicken Tortillas

  • Start by preparing the marinade for the chicken
  • Take a bowl and add olive oil, cumin powder, garlic paste, Sprig Tangier spice blend, salt, pepper and lemon juice according to the mentioned measurements; you can add more of the Sprig Tangier spice blend for a heavier earthy flavour
  • After preparing the marinade, clean the chicken breast piece properly
  • Slice the breast piece horizontally into thin strips (it’s not an easy task, make sure to use a sharp knife for the process)
  • Apply the marinade to each piece on both sides and set it aside for at least 30 minutes; meanwhile prepare the veggie stuffing

For stuffing

  • Chop the peppers into small cubes
  • Clean the mushrooms to make sure it is rid of any dirt
  • Chop the mushrooms into small cubes
  • Add all the chopped veggies to a bowl
  • Add grated cheese according to your preference; for a decently cheesy filling ½ cup of cheese is enough; you can add more according to your preference (it is suggested not to add more than 1 cup as it may not be possible to stuff the chicken too much)
  • Stuff each marinated chicken slice with the veggie stuffing; roll it up and secure it with a toothpick
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil on a non-stick pan
  • Place the chicken rollups seam side down (so they do not open); fry till golden brown
  • Remove from the gas and keep it aside; your dish is ready
  • On removing the toothpicks, the chicken rollup might fall apart, so keep them intact
  • Serve with a green salad and a dip or ketchup and it’s good to go as a perfect party snack
