Musakhan rolls are a delicious and flavorful Middle Eastern dish that puts a unique twist on the traditional Musakhan. Musakhan is a Palestinian dish typically made with roasted chicken, sumac-spiced onions, and flatbread. In the rolls version, these ingredients are rolled up in soft tortilla wraps, creating a convenient and portable meal. Here’s a description of Musakhan rolls:


Chicken: Tender and cooked chicken is the main protein component of the rolls. It can be roasted or cooked in any preferred method, seasoned with spices like sumac, cumin, paprika, and garlic powder. The chicken is then shredded or sliced into strips.
Sumac-Spiced Onions: The onions are sautéed until caramelized and seasoned with sumac, a tangy and citrusy spice commonly used in Middle Eastern cuisine. The sumac adds a distinct flavor and vibrant reddish hue to the onions.
Flatbread or Tortilla Wraps: Soft flatbread or tortilla wraps serve as the base for the rolls. They provide a flexible and sturdy vessel for holding the filling and can be easily rolled up.
Olive Oil: Olive oil is often used to cook the onions and brush the flatbread, adding a subtle richness and enhancing the flavors.
Lemon Juice: A splash of lemon juice is drizzled over the filling to provide a fresh and tangy element that complements the other flavors.
Optional Garnishes: Chopped parsley, pine nuts, or a drizzle of tahini sauce can be added as garnishes for added flavor and visual appeal.

The flatbread or tortilla wraps are warmed slightly to make them more pliable and easier to roll.
A layer of sumac-spiced onions is spread evenly onto the flatbread or tortilla wraps, leaving a border around the edges.
The cooked and shredded chicken is evenly distributed over the onions, creating a layer of savory and tender meat.
Drizzle a little lemon juice over the chicken for added freshness and tanginess.
The flatbread or tortilla wraps are then tightly rolled up, starting from one end, to enclose the filling.
If desired, the rolls can be cut into smaller portions for easier handling and serving.
Optional garnishes like chopped parsley, pine nuts, or a drizzle of tahini sauce can be added on top of the rolls for additional flavor and presentation.
Musakhan rolls can be served as a satisfying and flavorful main dish or as a handheld appetizer or snack. They are typically enjoyed immediately after assembly, either at room temperature or slightly warmed. These rolls are perfect for gatherings, picnics, or as a convenient meal on the go. The combination of the sumac-spiced onions, tender chicken, and soft flatbread creates a delightful blend of flavors and textures, providing a taste of the Middle East in a convenient and portable format.
