Armenian Russian Shaorma chicken wraps recipe

Armenian chicken wrap is a variation of a world-known dish doner kebab or shawarma (also spelt as shaorma).

In Armenian shawarma, widely popular in Russia, the meat and the toppings are wrapped into Armenian flatbread lavash. The wraps are then additionally toasted for a delicious crust. Originally the meat for those chicken wraps is grilled over a vertical spit but for home version you can fry lean chicken breasts in a grill pan.
