It was sushi that inspired this Japanese chicken wrap. It’s no secret that I love wraps. I recently did a recipe for a Tandoori chicken wrap and wraps are one of my go to dinners these days. But this particular wrap was inspired by sushi. I’m also a fan of sushi and after one of my sushi meals I was left with some wasabi, soya sauce and pickled ginger. I used the soya sauce to marinate my chicken, I mixed the wasabi with mayo to create a wasabi mayo and the pickled ginger was thrown into my wrap for acidity. It was a match made in heaven.
These flavours all go so well together and I hope you will try making this.

To make the chicken heat a bit of oil or pan spray in a non stick pan and place the chicken in. Keep the heat on medium as we don't want the pan too hot since the marinade can burn.
Cover the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes. Then flip over to finish cooking. The marinade should reduce and your chicken should be covered in a sticky glaze.
After resting the chicken slice it for your wrap.
Slice the cucumbers using a mandolin or slice very finely with your knife and mix in a bowl with the other ingredients. Allow it to sit in the fridge to pickle for at least 30-60 minutes.
In a bowl mix the wasabi, mayo and sesame oil to make the wasbai mayo.
Finely slice the cabbage and mix with the mayo and keep in the fridge for 15 minutes at least.
To assemble warm the wrap for 45-60 seconds on each side. Then add in the cabbage slaw, the chicken, the cucumber, the pickled ginger, more wasabi mayo if needed, spring onion greens and the black and white sesame seeds.
