Chicken, cheese and spinach melt

I think a while ago, I have told you that I am a big fan of gozleme (a savoury traditional Turkish pastry dish, made of hand-rolled dough that is lightly brushed with butter and eggs, filled with various toppings, sealed, and cooked over a griddle). First I was thinking, I should make my own dough like them and but by the time I left work, I was tired and not ready to make it from scratch so I bought Lebanese bread instead.

I am glad it turned out to be nice and both of us enjoyed our dinner.

Servings: 2

   Ingredients

  • 2 Lebanese bread (tortilla is another option)
  • 50g baby spinach
  • 100 g chicken mince
  • 100g tasty cheese shredded
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • Salt according to taste
  • Chilli flake according to taste
  • Lemon wedges, to serve

Method

  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and fry it until it is cooked. Add chicken mince, salt and cook, stirring, for 8-10 minutes or until browned.
