Barbecued Cajun Chicken Wraps

This recipe was based from one on the packet of McCormick's Cajun Spice - I altered it a bit and it was a huge hit with the family!  I did find the Cajun a bit too spicy for the kids, so I just cooked their chicken plain on a separate part of the barbecue.  You could always make up your own Cajun spice too!  Cooking the chicken on the barbie gave it the most divine flavour - and boring old mushrooms & onions come up tasting amazing too!  I love this one!

500g chicken tenderloins (or breast, cut into thick strips)
Cajun spice mix (depending on how you like it, use as little as 1 teaspoon or as much as 2 tablespoons!)
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 brown onion, sliced
olive oil spray
1 cob corn
4 multigrain wraps
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 cucumber, sliced
1 tablespoon mayonnaise

Mix chicken with a spray of oil, spice mix, mushrooms and brown onion in a bowl.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Heat barbecue to medium.  Cook chicken mix until browned, and vegetables are soft.  Grill the corn cob.  When cool enough to handle, remove kernels from cob.

Lay out wraps and top with spinach, cucumber and mayo.  Sprinkle with corn kernels then add cooked chicken mixture.  Wrap up and serve.
