Chicken rolls


A few days ago I had a conversation at work about fast food and all my workmates came to a conclusion that I am a healthy food freak! Well, I took it as a compliment and tried to prove that even the unhealthiest snack can be turned into much healthier one. The Internet is loaded with advice about leading healthy way of life. Just it needs to be taken into practice. Unfortunately, healthy eating is still too far for me. But I'm trying. I don't like snacking around with crisps and if I go to Burger King, I go just for ice-creams. Though on a day like yesterday I enjoy a snack like that - fajita filling rolled in phyllo dough. Fast-oily-but-delicious and I wouldn't say very unhealthy!

What we need:

1 sheet of phyllo dough cut into big triangles ( I buy circular phylo and cut into 4 triangles)

1 chicken breast, cut in slices
1 onion, sliced
1 carrot, cut in stripes
1 red pepper
5 mushrooms
some chilli
salt and pepper to taste
coriander seeds
cumin
olive oil

What we do:

1. Cut all the vegetables and chicken and fry slowly in a pan with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and add spices.
2. When the filling is ready, take phyllo triangle roll the filling in.
3. Fry in a bit of oil on both sides.
4. Serve with your favourite salad. Enjoy!!!

  1. That looks so yummy. I agree with you about the fast food. I not even a fan out going to restaurants. At home I know what is going into the food and how it was prepared.
