- 1 fresh cucumber
- 7 – 8 lettuce leaves
- 1 flatbread (lavash)
- vegetable oil (for frying)
- 100 g (3,5 oz) hard cheese
- 1 tsp tomato paste/ketchup
- 1 tbsp sour cream/mayonnaise
- a couple of fresh parsley twigs
- 250-300 g (7 – 10,5 oz) chicken breast
- ground black pepper – to taste
- sesame seeds – to taste
- salt – to taste
Cut the chicken breast into thin slices. Preheat vegetable oil in a frying pan. Transfer the meat there and season it with black pepper and salt. Fry on both sides until fully done.
Wash and dry lettuce leaves and cucumber.
Arrange your flatbread on a table. Grease the half of it with sour cream (if you want a lighter version) or with mayonnaise (to get a more hearty roll). At first we’ll arrange lettuce leaves. Put the fried chicken slices above them. Cut cheese into thin slices and put them next to the lettuce. At the end add cucumber circles. Finish with a ketchup “wave” or you may use tomato paste if you wish. Top with sesame seeds. Roll the flatbread into a cylinder. Grease its edges with sour cream/mayonnaise to stick them. Cut the roll into medium pieces and serve them in a bowl covered with lettuce leaves. Garnish with several cucumber circles and fresh parsley twigs. Let stand for 20 minutes and you can serve or keep in the fridge, covered.
Everything is easy, budget-friendly, and wholesome!
Enjoy your meal!
