Recipe: Spicy roast chicken and lime watermelon wraps

These tasty and easy-to-make wraps are perfect for a summer lunch or light dinner! 


  • 280 g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 50 g butter, cubed
  • Boiling water
  • 4 free-range chicken breasts, skin on
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1-2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 2 tsp dried chilli
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup low-fat Bulgarian (or Greek/Suzme) yoghurt
  • 2 fresh chillies, chopped
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • 3 tbsp coriander, chopped
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 200 g ripe watermelon, cubed

Cooking Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the flour and salt in a bowl and rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips to incorporate evenly. Add boiling water, a little at a time, and mix with a fork to incorporate. Knead to create a smooth, soft dough.
  • Separate the dough into balls and roll out thinly on a clean, floured surface. Pan-fry on each side in a dry pan over a medium to low heat until golden brown.
  • Marinate the chicken breasts in the spices, olive oil and lemon juice. Arrange on a baking tray and roast for 15 to 20 minutes until cooked through. Remove from the heat and allow to rest, then slice.
  • Mix the yoghurt, chilli, spring onion, coriander and lime juice. Fill the wraps with the chicken, top with the watermelon, then spoon over the dressing. Season to taste.
