Then add soya sauce, lemon juice, sweet chilli sauce, sugar and cook for another 2 min.Add the clean, washed, sliced vegetables and cook for 2 min. Finally add noodles and stirfry till vegetables are crunchy texture. Season to taste.
  4. In another saucepan steam/boil your chicken breasts, once cooked allow to cool and cut into thin slices. Add mayonnaise.
  5. To another saucepan bring oil to heat. Add tomato paste, curry powder and cook for 2 min stirring frequently. Then add peeled tomatoes, coconut milk and lentils. Simmer until liquid reduces by half. Make sure the lentils are not overcooked (mushy). Strain off liquid.
  6. Heat wrap in oven on 180 degrees for 2 min. lay wrap on a plate, place chicken in and then lentil mix. This mixture should not be watery. Roll wrap and place back into oven until lightly coloured.
