Kenyan-inspired spiced chicken wraps

Updated: Oct 1


A nice easy week-night recipe this time. For me, fajitas are my go-to, cook-in-twenty-minutes, post-work meal of choice. I'd normally go fairly traditional with the flavourings (paprika, chilli, cumin, garlic etc), but I decided to experiment a little on this one and spice it with flavours more commonly found in kuku paka curry. Kuku paka (delicious chicken) is a curry found on the coast of Kenya containing chicken, coconut and a variety of spices and flavourings, which I have tried to capture the essence of in this recipe. Of course, you can alter the flavours in this however you want, but if you want to try something a little different without any extra effort, give this recipe a try!
