ChickenBaba Wraps

This was a meal in parts. I had homemade babaganoush and pita, made by a friend. I had carrots and a thawed-out chicken breast in the fridge. A bunch of cilantro about to get old. It all sort of came together...
I mixed up a cumin-yogurt marinade and let the chicken sit in it all day, then grilled it, shredded it, and rolled it up in a Pita with Babaganoush, chopped pickles and sauteed onions, and it was THE shit... and actually pretty easy to whip up when you think about it.
ChickenBaba Wraps
- chicken breast
- 1/4 c yogurt
- 1/4 c sour cream
- 2 tbsp cumin
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- juice of a half lime
- 1/4 c salty pickles, chopped
- 1/4 red onion, sliced thin
- 1/8 c sherry
- 2 pita wraps

Mix sour cream, yogurt, cumin, paprika and lime, then pour over chicken in a ziplock bag and let it marinate for as long as possible during the day (even over night). Wipe marinade from Chicken and grill on either side until cooked through. Let chicken cool, meanwhile saute onions until soft, add sherry, and cook until the liquid is absorbed and the onions are beginning to caramelize. Spread babaganoush on each of the pitas, and then divide the rest of the ingredients between the two.
I served this with honey-curry carrots with cilantro.
