1. For the chicken: mix all of the chicken ingredients together in a bowl then set aside to marinate for at least an hour.

2. Preheat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the chicken strips to the pan and griddle for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and charred in places. Set aside to rest for 3-4 minutes.

3. For the bulgur wheat: when the bulgur is tender, stir through all the other ingredients and season with salt and black pepper.

4. For the salad: mix all of the salad ingredients together in a bowl.

5. To serve, spread the wraps with yogurt and sprinkle with a little paprika. Scatter over the bulgur wheat and salad followed by the chicken. Roll up, cut in half and serve.
