For potatoes, in a large saucepan, blanch potato wedges for 8 minutes. Strain, cool and dry on a clean kitchen towel, set aside.
For the Moroccan Spice, in a small bowl, combine cumin, ginger, salt, black pepper, cinnamon, coriander, cayenne, allspice and cloves.
For the Chicken Wrap, season chicken breast with 1 tablespoon Moroccan spice. In a large skillet, sauté yellow onions in olive oil until translucent. Add chicken and sauté until cooked through. Add red and yellow peppers, garlic, garbanzo beans, tomato sauce and basil, simmer for 3 minutes, season with salt and pepper. Spread on a sheet tray to cool, set aside.
Place 1 set (5 sheets) thawed Athens® Ready-To-Go Fillo DoughTM on work surface and cut into four, 6- by 9-inch rectangles. Place ¼ of the Moroccan chicken mixture on each rectangle. Fold fillo up over the filling rolling lengthwise. Fold side edges in to enclose the sides. Roll up to one end of fillo strip. Brush outside of roll with butter. Repeat three times. Refrigerate.
At service, bake Chicken Wraps in a preheated 350°F oven for 12 to 14 minutes, until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, heat olive oil. Add blanched potatoes and cumin, sauté until potatoes are crispy and cooked through. Season with salt, pepper and cilantro. For spinach, heat olive oil in sauté pan. Add spinach and minced garlic, sauté until spinach has wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
To serve, slice the cooked Chicken Wraps in half on the bias. Place spinach in the center of the plate, drizzle tomato sauce (1 cup total) around the spinach. Place the Chicken Wraps on top of the spinach. Place the Crispy Potatoes on the plate and finish with a fresh rosemary sprig.
