Mid Eastern Chicken Patties in fried wraps with mango salsa

Last week I was experimenting in the kitchen and I came up with a finger-licking good recipe that I even surprised myself! It is an excellent treat for lunch or as a light dinner in summer. What about Middle Eastern spiced chicken patties in spiced fried wraps, topped with a mango salsa and garlic sauce?

Chicken patties with fried wraps

Matched with a salad, fries or couscous it would also qualify as a full dinner I think, depending on how much you eat. First I made Mid Eastern spiced chicken patties from ground chicken. Once those were finished I wanted to complement them with a salsa so I mixed mango, pickled red onions, avocado, and coriander. While I was contemplating what to serve it with, a package of mexican wraps caught my eye. What if I season them and fry them, I thought. And so I did!  The flavours are awesome, and I love the crunch of the wrap, with the sweet and sour salsa and spicy patties. To give it a bit more moisture, I mixed a garlic sauce with mint, but I bet it would also be great with a fresh yogurt sauce with mint. (For the complete recipe, scroll down)
