Directions:

  • Mix sauce ingredients together and refrigerate.
  • In a non stick skillet over moderate heat warm each flat bread on both sides until warm and soft. Remove from pan, cover with foil and place under a kitchen towel to keep warm.
  • Pound chicken breasts a little to flatten and create a more uniform thickness.
  • Mix ginger, paprika and garlic powder together, adding salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. Drizzle a little olive oil on the breasts and rub with the spice mixture. If you like spicier food feel free to increase the amounts of seasonings to meet your taste.
  • Grill whole chicken breast over medium heat until juices run clear and then slice into strips.
  • ~OR~ slice each breast into strips and saute until browned and thoroughly cooked. Add a little oil if needed to prevent sticking. Remove chicken from pan or push to the sides, away from hottest part of pan.
  • Add onions and bell peppers to pan and cook just until crisp tender or cooked to your liking.
  • To serve:.
  • Spread cream sauce on a warm flat bread. Add chicken strips, peppers, onions and tomato.
  • Top with additional cream sauce, more salt, pepper or spices IF DESIRED. A squirt of fresh lime is also very tasty and refreshing. Customize it to your liking.
  • Fold in half like a taco or roll up like a burrito or a wrap.

    This was okay, but very bland, even after I added/adjusted knowing that I like a bit of spice. I did use fresh garlic and it made a sort of paste with the dry ingredients that DID make a nice rub. The prep time was not close to 15 minutes for me…this took me over an hour start to finish with the slicing, dicing, chicken prep, etc. Maybe if I did some tweaking for my tastes…thank you for sharing the recipe.

    These were pretty good but not as flavorful as I expected. The chicken does not really seem to absorb the flavors of the spice mixture. I think maybe a true marinade would work better. I cut the chicken in strips, which worked out fine. I would love to try this again, just making a few adjustments. Thanks for sharing!

    My boyfriend picked this for us to make in a long-distance relationship and I was hesitant.
    I actually added far more ginger, spice, and paprika. I added jullianed jalopenos with the peppers and cayenne with the sour cream, just to kick it all up.

    What a wonderful recipe and fun to make. You can use the leftovers to make fajitas, or add peanuts, zuccini, and chestnuts for a kung pao! I would recommend this a thousand times again.

    Wow as good as all the reviews. A must make and new staple in my house. This was AMAZING. I made it for a friend and she cobbled it all up with a big smile. The fresh lime at the end… YUMMY! A few modifications to spice it up and I prefer to marinade and grill on skewers. Minced 2 teaspoons of fresh ginger instead of 1 1/2, garlic was fresh not powder,minced one whole jalapeno, cayenne is a must, lots of cracked black pepper, squeezed juice of one lime, and a tablespoon of white vinegar. Cubed the chicken and poured it all into a ziplock bag for a fews hours to soak. Grilled on skewers 4 min a side. Cilantro cream sauce- low fat sour cream, 4 teaspoons of lime not 2 and grated lime rind as well. Salt and pepper to taste. Next time I may use a thicker greek type pita as the whole wheat tortilla was a bit flimsy to hold in the cream sauce. Already on the menu for dinner this weekend.

    Reggae Wraps…I added just a tad more Calypso and they were then perfect. 🙂

    Very good recipe. It was not near enough spice for us though. I will be doubling or tripling the spices next time. Added garlic to the sauce and it was a welcome addition.

    I made a tofu version by doubling the spice mixture, adding its volume in flour, coating the tofu and then frying it for 10 minutes. I also added a bit of the spice mixture to the sauce, and served wrapped up in a tortilla. It was pretty good, but I don’t think it wound up tasting anything like the meat version is supposed to. Great sauce.

    Served in pita bread. Used extra sauce throughout the week as salad dressing. Very good.

    These were very good and the only complaint that I got was that the cilantro taste in the sauce was overpowering (and I agree). Everything else was great. I used boneless skinless chicken tenderloins and marinated them for about 4 hours and they definitely soaked up the flavors of the marinade. I was disappointed because of the overpowering cilantro flavor but it wasn’t enough to ruin the meal because everyone gobbled it up pretty quickly. I think the next time I make it, I will also marinate the onions and peppers in the sauce and cut way back on the cilantro. Thank you for posting it was pretty yummy!
