I love this dish. I want to have it for dinner, then again for lunch the next day. It's bursting with flavour, full of crunch, and as Mark says, kids will eat these as fast as you can make them.
2 free-range chicken breasts 100 ml (3-4 fluid ounces) thick soy sauce 100 ml (3-4 fluid ounces) sweet chilli sauce Juice of 1 lemon 2 carrots 2 Lebanese cucumbers 2 fresh tomatoes 4 roti prata, defrosted (packets of 5 are available in good Asian specialist stores) 100 ml (about ¼ cup) good mayonnaise 100 g (3-4 ounces) dried Asian fried onion (available in good Asian specialist stores; keeps well in the fridge after opening)
1 Cut the chicken breasts into long strips 2 cm (about 1”) wide, and marinate for 10 minutes in half the soy sauce, half the chilli sauce and all the lemon juice.
2 Cut long strips of carrot and cucumber, and chop the tomatoes into small chunks.
3 Unfold the roti prata, cut each in half and warm in a lightly oiled frying pan (skillet). Be careful that they don’t dry out as they won’t then roll – wrap them in tin foil after warming to help prevent them drying out.
4 Barbecue or pan-fry the chicken strips on a low to medium heat for 5–10 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are a golden cooked colour.
5 Lay a single serve of roti on a chopping board and drizzle with soy sauce, chilli sauce and a little mayonnaise. Place strips of carrot, cucumber and chicken on top and add some chopped tomato. Drizzle with more soy sauce, sprinkle with fried onions and roll the wrap up tightly.
6 Cut in two, serve and eat immediately – kids will eat these as fast as you can make them!
