Made it! Chicken Flatbread Wrap

I made this Chicken Flatbread Wrap last night and had mixed feelings about it. Overall, I thought the flavors had potential. My version lacked some heat, so when I make it again, I will not be shy about seasoning well...maybe even over-seasoning. Normally, I am not a fan of eggplant, but I loved this baba ganoush. It was so easy to make and provided a nice, healthy creaminess to the sandwich. The onions added a needed sourness. I also wanted to get a veggie in there (so I wouldn't have to make a side dish) so I simply sauteed some extra rapini I had, which added a nice bitterness. The chicken patty itself was the star of this dish. It was packed with flavor and was very moist. I pre-made two extra patties and froze them for easy re-heating for another meal later in the week.

By biggest problem with this dish was that it was so messy. I think I over-toasted the flatbread, so it was hard to fold on top of all the filling. Also, the chicken patty I made was too big. In future preparations of this meal, I will make the patty smaller, toast the bread less, and not skimp on the seasoning. I also liked Lisa's recommendation to fry up a small tasting of the patty meat to check for seasoning.

Although my first attempt with this meal did not go perfectly, it's definitely a recipe that I will continue to make and perfect. I loved how this recipe was not only quick to prepare, but also very satisfying and healthy. A perfect meal after a long day at grad school (or work!).


  1. Yay! I am glad that you will be making this again. Thanks for the recommendations. Tasting everything for seasoning is essential, I do half my eating before I sit down at the dinner table:) Also, just and FYI- red chili flakes loose their heat if they are old, so taste them before putting them into the filling to see if you have a hot or mild batch.

    BTW- your camera takes nice pictures. I am using my Nikon SLR, to get my shots. My Sony has a hard time focusing in on the macro shots

  2. Eggplant is a vegetable! So are onions!
