Wraps are one of the easiest and most satisfying grab-and-go snacks, and they’re almost always healthier than most other fast-food alternatives out there. The best part? You can put together one in minutes, and more often than not, as long as you have some wheat flour tortillas around, you already have all you need at home.
This is an easy recipe for a chicken wrap, and we’re livening it with a dollop of Ranch. Who doesn’t like Ranch, right? I know I do. The rest is super easy; let me tell you all about it.
This one starts like all wraps with a wheat flour tortilla. We’re stuffing it with shredded chicken (which we’ll sauté with onion and garlic,) bell peppers, lots of mozzarella, shredded lettuce and Ranch. The tastiest things in life are often quite simple, don’t you agree?
So, the secret with this one is heating the tortilla before filling it; then, you tuck it like a burrito. Don’t try to fill the wrap and cook it later, or the inside of the tortilla will forever be too soggy. That’s what so many places get wrong, you know? You don’t build a wrap and attempt to heat it later with a sandwich press — that’s not right.
Although I do recommend sticking with chicken for this one, I encourage you to throw in a few extra veggies. The crunchier, the better. Carrot sticks, perhaps some zucchini slices or avocado. You name it. After all, we want a tasty lunch, but we also want it to be healthy, right?
In a pot with salted water, boil the chicken until cooked through. Let it cool and shredd with a pair of forks. Set aside.
Mince the garlic and the onion. Slice the bell pepper.
In a skillet, add two tablespoons of olive oil and sauté the garlic, onion and bell peppers until roasted and fragrant.
Incorporate the chicken and mix well. Cook for 5 minutes and set aside.
Heat the wheat tortillas in a skillet for 1 minute on each side until slightly toasted.
Using a spoon, scoop a few tablespoons of the chicken mixture over the tortillas, top with grated mozzarella, lettuce and Ranch dressing. Roll and tuck like a burrito and serve immediately. Enjoy with your favorite hot sauce!
