  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried mint
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Combine all the above ingredients and place them in a bag (or another suitable container) in the fridge. Marinade for between one hour up to one day.


Preheat fan assisted oven to 200 deg C or 400 deg F.

Spread the marinated chicken on baking paper.

Cook about 10 mins until the chicken is just cooked but still moist.

A meat thermometer should read 75 deg C or 165 deg F.


  • lettuce leaves
  • 4 tomatoes, finely sliced
  • 1x red onion, finely sliced

Place the chicken, some of the tomato and some of the onion into each lettuce leaf and wrap the leaf.

Repeat until all the chicken is used up.
