Chicken wrap recipe/ easy shawarma recipe


This Chicken wrap recipe or you can call it shawarma recipe or a Middle Eastern chicken wrap is my favourite as it is easy to made, and my family love it.
You can consider this as a lunch box recipe if your kids love wraps.
These chicken wraps are full of flavour, a good source of protein, and very filling. Once you try it, I bet you will find it hard to stop at one piece.
I used Nandos extreme hot Perry Perry sauce because my husband and I loves the spicy food.
But for my children, I use a plain barbecue sauce instead.
The reason I didn’t add garlic to the shawarma seasoning or to the wrap is that I used roasted garlic tortilla that will add the garlic flavour to the wraps.
Yes, it’s not the traditional recipe for chicken shawarma as there’s no hummus in it, but this is the way my family love to eat the chicken wrap.

Too much carbs in this shawarma recipe?!

If you are on a low carb diet or just trying to reduce your carb intake, you can use a low carb tortilla instead.
Or may be making lettuce or cabbage wraps as a healthier and gluten-free option.
