Chicken Kefta Wraps

Chicken Kefta Wraps are a great recipe to feed a crowd. The chicken mixture is made with ground chicken, zucchini, tons of herbs and a little tahini to give it some extra pizzaz. Then that gets wrapped up on a piece of Naan with some Fattoush Salad and a sumac vinaigrette for good measure. It’s perfection if you ask me.

  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Instructions

For the Kefta

  • Grate zucchini, combine with ½ teaspoon salt and let sit 5 minutes. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Mix together zucchini and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Divide the mixture into 12 pieces, then with damp hands, shape around 12 soaked skewers.
  • Heat a grill or grill pan to medium high, brush the kebabs with a bit of oil, then grill for 8-10 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.

For the Salad

  • In a large bowl toss together the lettuce, green onions, tomatoes, cucumber, mint, and parsley.

For the Dressing

  • In another smaller bowl, water with soaked sumac, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, garlic, red wine vinegar and olive oil. Whisk to combine and season with salt as needed.
  • Combine the dressing with the salad and gently combine until lightly dressed. Place spoonfuls of salad on toasted Stonefire Naan and top with chicken kebabs and drizzle with dressing. Wrap and serve.
