Okay so I'm trying to make a high fiber diet with the aid of Susan Roberts' "Instinct Diet." I may have mentioned before that this is probably a good diet if you live next to a whole foods, and living in Korea definitely makes things difficult. I will not actually start the diet until Saturday, but today I feel I have invented a wonderful recipe that I can use on the diet.
Introducing "Jim's Middle Eastern Barley Chicken Wrap."
A pita or a flour Tortilla
A chicken breast.
Take some barely and boil it in water. First boil the barely on high heat until it boils a lot, then reduce heat and let simmer for 45 minutes. Use the 45 minutes to chop the onion and tomatoes, and whatever else you might want to prepare for the meal like a salad or something.
Cut the Chicken into strips and fry in olive oil with cumin, salt, and pepper.
Use about three inches of cuccumber, chopped into quarters, and combine with 1 small container of unsweetened yogurt.
Now put the barely, chicken, onion, tomato, and cucumber sauce in the middle of a slightly warmed pita, or tortilla (Tortillas work great, that is all I can get here.)
Don't use too much barley. I cooked a cup of it, and now I'm stuck with a lot of barley. Tomorrow, I'm going to try and have oatmeal with barley in it for breakfast.
Enjoy. I just thought this recipe up this afternoon. The barley really matches well. It tastes kind of like a gyro.
