    Chicken and carrot flatbreads

    Wrap up these flatbreads for spontaneous alfresco dining. Halloumi makes a good swap for the chicken.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    3 carrots (about 350g), sliced into slim rounds
    1 tsp ground cumin
    2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
    about 400g chicken mini fillets
    1 tbsp zaatar, plus extra to serve
    4 Crosta & Mollica piadina flatbreads (from 2 packs)
    400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    2 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 tbsp tahini
    2 lemons, juice of 1, 1 cut into wedges
    2 gem lettuce, shredded


    1. Preheat the oven to 230˚C, gas mark 8. Toss the carrots with the cumin and 1 tbsp olive oil; season and spread over a roasting tin. Roast for about 20 minutes until tender and turning golden.

    2. Meanwhile, toss the chicken with the zaatar and a little olive oil; season. Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat then cook the chicken for 6 minutes on each side until cooked thoroughly and no pink meat remains. Warm the flatbreads in the oven for 1-2 minutes.

    3. Using a stick blender, whizz ½ the carrots with the chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice and remaining 1 tbsp olive oil until smooth (you may need to add a little water); season. Spread each flatbread with the houmous then top with the chicken, lettuce and reserved carrots. Add a little extra zaatar and olive oil. Serve with the lemon wedges.
