Garlic + Herb Grilled Chicken with Saffron Rice + Cucumber Salad Naan Wrap

Simply marinated + grilled chicken with dried oregano + garlic, paired with crunchy cucumber salad + creamy lemon hummus. The cool + herby cream with the charred naan bread + saffron rice pull it all together - don't forget some hot sauce.


It's a mouth full BUT I'm ALL about piling on more ingredients onto sandwich, wrap or salads. The more the merrier in my opinion. I love the combination of all the textures, colors + hot + cold items together.


Such a simple + delicious weeknight meal that everyone at your table will enjoy. Make it how you like it - that way we are all happy!
