We've assumed that you are most likely to enjoy this dish for lunch but it would also make a wonderful low fat dinner.

Chicken breast is a dieter's best friend because it is low in fat, high in protein and keeps you feeling fuller longer. Wraps are a healthy and low calorie alternative to white bread. The best wrap to use is a wholemeal pita or wholemeal tortilla. You can use either tzatiki made with greek yoghurt and grated cucumber mixed together or just plain greek yoghurt which has a lovely creamy flavour.

This recipe is low saturated fat, low sodium, low sugar and high protein.

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken breast, sliced into strips
  • 1 tbsp. cajun spice
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 light tortillas or pita bread
  • 2-3 tbsp. tzatikki dip or greek yoghurt
  • 1/2 zucchini, sliced
  • 1/2 large carrot sliced

Method

  1. Place chicken strips, cajun spice and oil in a bowl, cover and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat a large non-stick fry pan over a medium-high heat. Cook zucchini and carrot slices. Take off and set aside.
  3. Place the chicken strips in the pan and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  4. Top each tortilla with Tzatziki dip, carrot, zuccini and carrot.
  5. Serve immediately with a green salad of your choice.
