Cook this easy recipe with the kids they will love it
The good thing about homemade kebabs is you can combine the ingredients you personally like to produce the best kebab you've ever tasted, for a 1/3 of the retail price. Most Kebab shops these days sell a kebab for around $6-$9, depending on the size and additional toppings you request to satisfy your taste buds.

You can purchase Lebanese bread from your local supermarket to make a delicious kebab.

Preparation time 5 minutes (serves 1 person)

Ingredients (change the ingredients to suit your taste buds)

1 x Lebanese bread wrap
1 x Small chicken thigh
1 x Mushroom sliced
1/2 Tomato sliced
1/8 Avocado
Handful of shredded lettuce
1/4 Cup grated cheese
1 Tablespoon of hummus
BBQ sauce


1. Place a non-stick fry pan on a medium heat and cook the chicken thigh for 10-15 minutes or until cooked. If you would prefer lamb, beef or something else like kangaroo perhaps cook the meat your taste desires, if you are a vegetarian you could use falafels instead of meat.

2. Place a peeled and sliced mushroom into the fry pan with the chicken for the last 5 minutes of the required cooking time.

3. Whilst the chicken and mushrooms are cooking prepare the filling by slicing the tomato, washing and shredding the lettuce, and grating the cheese.

4. Place the Lebanese bread on a plate and assemble all the ingredients together, spreading the avocado and hummus on the bread first, then add the ingredients by placing them on top of each other one by one with the cheese last.

5. When the chicken and mushrooms are cooked, place the mushrooms on top of the kebab ingredients and slice the chicken thigh into pieces and place on top of the mushrooms.

6. Pour the desired amount of your favourite sauce (mine is BBQ) over the chicken and wrap the Lebanese bread by folding one side towards the middle, then the other side towards the middle so the sides are overlapping.

7. Heat a non-stick fry pan on low heat or if you have a flat sandwich press, you can also use this utensil to toast your kebab on both sides. Hold your kebab together and place on the fry pan or sandwich press and cook for 2-3 minutes on both sides or until golden brown or until the cheese melts.

8. Serve immediately, to help the kids and yourself eat the kebabs you can use greaseproof paper, brown paper bags or paper towel to wrap around the kebab and hold them together to keep the mess that may fall out of the bottom from dripping everywhere. Bon appetit!
