Chicken Rice Rolex Recipe

Rolex is a famous street food in Kampala, it is usually quick and cost effective. It normally consists of eggs, tomatoes, onions and cabbage  rolled in a chapati. I would call a Rolex an all times food since you can have for breakfast lunch or dinner.

 Rolex reminds me of my  student life at Makerere Business School. So today I decided to make a dish that is inspired  by the a rolex. I choose  to use different ingredients  and I will call it  chicken rice Rolex.

Start by preparing the chapati, you can use whole grain flour if prefered. Cook the rice then stir-fry the chicken and veggies until cooked through and tender and then add the cooked rice and soy sauce. Serve on a warm chapati and roll it.
