Thai Chicken Wrap

This is one of the best wraps I've had in a while, put in more or less chilli as your tolerance allows! It was so fresh and zingy tasting.

Thai Chicken Wrap (from WeightWatchers Magazine)
(Serves 2)

1 chicken breast, sliced into strips
1/4 cucumber, deseeded and sliced
1/2 small carrot, grated
juice 1/2 lime
lettuce leaves
2 tortilla wraps
1 tsp mayonnaise

for the marinade
1 green chilli, deseeded
2 shallots, roughly chopped
2 cm piece ginger, roughly chopped
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
1 lemongrass stalk, roughly chopped
small bunch coriander
juice and zest 1 lime
1 tsp Thai fish sauce
2 tsp oil

Place all the marinade ingredients in a small food processor and blitz until you have a thick paste. Combine with the chicken and mix well. Cover and set aside for 30 mins.

Meanwhile, combine the cucumber and grated carrot with the lime juice. Preheat the grill.

Spread the marinated chicken pieces on the baking tray and place it under the grill. Cook for 10-15 mins or until firm but still tender and moist. Set aside to cool for a few mins.

Smear half the mayonnaise over each tortilla. Place a few lettuce leaves in the middle. Add the grated carrot and cucumber and top with the chicken. Wrap up the tortilla and serve or pack into a lunchbox.
