Healthy Chicken and Vegetable Wrap
Healthy Chicken and Vegetable wrap is a superb food, filled with proteins and vitamins and a perfect delicious lunch pack idea. It is a healthy and delicious combination of chicken and vegetables rolled in tasty wraps. Wraps are the easiest and convenient kids lunch or office lunch box recipes. It is a quick portable meal, a delightful snack or a meal on the go!! I try to make their lunch appealing by trying out different ideas like Paneer Pulao, Corn Pulao, Fried rice, Chicken Noodles, Veg. Pulao, Chicken Kati Rolls, Roti with curries, Veg. Sandwiches, grilled sandwich etc. My kids prefer sandwiches or rolls or wraps for lunch as it is not messy and they can have an enjoyable lunch time. Even my hubby enjoys these wraps as he can continue his romance with the computers uninterrupted! 🙂
Recently, my dear friend Sheba asked me to post some healthy wrap recipes that she can pack for office lunch and the first recipe that came to my mind was this delicious and healthy Chicken and Vegetable Wrap. Chicken roll is easy to make and tastes good with almost all wraps; like roti, tortillas, pita breads or even bread rolls. You can add onions, mushrooms, lettuce leaves, fried potatoes, Squid rings etc. to the filling for variety and have a fresh taste every day. I have used Garlic Mayonnaise for dressing, you can try freshly grated cheese, white sauce, cream cheese, Toum/ Garlic sauce or even Hummus as spread and top with Lebanese pickles. Since only minimal dressing is used, the rotis or wraps stay fresh and don’t turn soggy for long time.
Always try to make home cooked food to serve to your children. There are so many easy recipes which they all enjoy. Try making steamed Chicken Momos, Pizzas, Puffs at home and enjoy all the hugs and kisses. Food memories last forever. For now, try these healthy Chicken and vegetable wrap and enjoy!
