ingredients to make the chicken wrap

How to make this chicken Wrap

  • Make the dressing: First, start by preparing a dressing; whisk all the dressing ingredients to a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Prepare the chicken: Next, place the chicken breast in a re-sealable plastic bag. Starting in the center pound with a rolling pin until the chicken is even in thickness. Preheat the grill over medium-high heat to about 425F. In a small mixing bowl, combine Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, olive oil, and lemon juice. Then, using your clean hands generously rub the seasoning all over the chicken.

  • Prepare the veggies: Meanwhile, prepare veggies, tear the lettuce, and dice the avocados. Cut the tomatoes in half and set aside.

FAQ’s and tips

  • Meat: we love this with chicken but you may use any other meat of choice
  • Oil: olive oil was used, which can be replaced with any other oil like avocado oil
  • Yogurt: Greek yogurt would be ideal, but you can sub this with any other yogurt of choice or you a dairy-free option
  • Anchovy fillets: not everyone liked this, so it optional
  • Tortilla: use any low carb option tortilla
  • Serving size is one full wrap (two halves)
  • Wrap your leftover chicken wrap and store it in the fridge for up to 4 days. It is best to consume this sooner than later to prevent it from getting soggy.  Serve cold when ready to eat. We do not recommend freezing.

 

How long does a chicken wrap last

A chicken wrap will last up to 4 days when stored in the fridge. Use a plastic wrap or foil to tightly wrap the chicken wrap before storing it in the fridge. When ready to serve place on the kitchen counter for 10 minutes so it’s less chilled and then enjoy.

What do you put on a wrap

Your wrap can have many things from a serving of protein,  dressings, condiments, and veggies. Here are some ideas of things you can add to your wraps:

  • Protein: any protein you fancy using like grilled chicken, steak bites, tuna, shrimps, salmon, and so on
  • Lettuce: use any lettuce to add some fiber and crunch, you can also add other greens like spinach
  • Veggies: go for tomatoes, avocados, sweet peppers, and onions.
  • Condiments: things like mayo, pickles, pickled peppers, and cheese.

Is chicken wrap healthy

Depending on what you add to your chicken wrap will determine if it’s healthy or not. Some wraps are loaded with high-calorie ingredients that make the wrap high in calories and more on the unhealthy side. Use veggies, grilled chicken, and make your own dressing as we did with this Chicken Caesar Wrap. Making your own homemade dressing will also help!
