    1. Prepare the chicken: Process the ginger, garlic, spices, cilantro, oil and vinegars in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add the chicken strips and marinate for at least 24 hours.
    2. Prepare the glaze: In a small saucepan, reduce maple syrup and vinegar to a glaze, infusing with the rosemary sprig. When finished, the glaze should coat the back of a spoon. Remove the rosemary sprig, then season with salt and pepper to taste and allow the glaze to cool.
    3. Prepare the slaw: Combine ingredients and toss to mix.
    4. Prepare the dressing: Whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, mustard seeds, sugar and spices, drizzling in the olive oil and canola oil to create an emulsion. Adjust seasoning to taste.
    5. Cook and assemble the dish: In a hot pan, heat a teaspoon of canola oil and sauté the marinated chicken until almost cooked through, then begin brushing the glaze over the chicken strips. Continue the glazing process until chicken is cooked through and has a browned, caramelized crust. Heat flatbreads (45 seconds per side) in a hot skillet, then distribute 1/4 of the chicken strips in the center of each piece. Wrap the chicken in the flatbreads (like burritos) and place each on a plate. Toss the slaw with the dressing and serve immediately alongside each of the chicken frankies.
