…And That’s a Wrap!

Ever need a quick go-to lunch, or maybe a quick go-to dinner that doesn’t require three hours spent in the kitchen?… Well you have come to the right place! As much as I love quality time with  my pots and pans, it is nice to get out every once and again, and make a quick but nutritious meal!

Growing up, wraps were not a common item on our lunch or dinner menu, but I was always intrigued by them! Not quite a burrito, but no a sandwich. The closest thing I came to experiencing one of these baby’s was at a friends Birthday party, where pin wheels from Costco were one of the appetizers.  (C’mon, you remember them too!)

Any who, I typically bring my lunch to work and got tired of the everyday sandwich or left-overs from dinner the night before. I decided to take a few of my all time favorite ingredients and combine them together to make this delish, chicken, goat cheese, sun-dried tomato and zucchini wrap. Prepare your taste buds, because work week lunches just turned into a party!

~Chicken, Goat Cheese, Sun-dried Tomato and Zucchini Wrap ~

Makes 2 Wraps

Ingredients:

  • 2 whole wheat wraps (you can cheat and use tortillas, just warm them before hand, and no they don’t have to be wheat) —> I like buying mine at Trader Joe’s.
  • 4 tablespoons of herb goat cheese
  • 1 cup of cooked, and diced/shredded chicken
  • 1 small zucchini sliced into very small strips (aka: a Julienne cut)
  • 4 tablespoons of sliced sun-dried tomatoes
  • A little salt and pepper
Directions:
1. Lay your first wrap flat on a cutting board
2. With a butter knife, evenly spread the goat cheese making sure to not get too close to the edges.
3. Arrange your chicken, sliced zucchini and sun-dried tomatoes next.
4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
5. Wrap it all up like a burrito!
Here is how:
Fold at least one edge in (if you lay your ingredients out in a line rather than a pile it will help-make the first fold perpendicular to the “line of food,” then fold the opposite side in).Next rotate 90 degrees, and fold one edge over the fillings and pull back firmly, but not too much; and roll on itself.Cut in half or keep whole and enjoy or refrigerate!

Why I love this recipe:
I love this recipe because it is super easy to make as long as you have all the necessary ingredients! I also love taking it for lunch or for a picnic, and warming it the microwave for 20 seconds (if there is one around of course!) I don’t mind eating it by itself, but for you dippers out there, adding a pesto or ranch dressing to the mix might just take lunch to a whole new level!  ❤ ❤ ❤
