Favorite Chicken Wrap {love this!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

We had an eventful weekend doing yard work and cleaning out flower beds and it’s still not finished. Hopefully by the end of the week, it will be done. I made a delicious chicken wrap over the weekend based on a healthy tip from my friend Nicole over at Family Table Treasures. She is a friend from home that just started a blog! She told me to par boil chicken and mix with cucumbers. Par boiling chicken sounded disgusting but I tried it and was pleasantly surprised with the results! I decided boil the chicken though until it was fully cooked.

Eating healthy isn’t easy. In fact, preparing the food so it’s readily available can be time consuming. I par boiled 3 chicken breasts and mixed in the ingredients and it lasted the entire week which was super helpful at lunch or dinner time.

Favorite Chicken Wrap

Ingredients
  

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 scallion {optional}
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese {optional}
  • Sesame seeds {optional}
  • Salt and pepper
  • Mayonaise
  • Low carb/low sugar flat whole grain wrap {I used Joseph's brand}

Instructions
 

  • Boil chicken breast for 18-20 minutes or until no pink in middle
  • Once cooked remove chicken from water and lay on a cutting board, pat dry and cool
  • Dice up cooled chicken and place in large bowl {I shredded some of the chicken}
  • Add diced cucumbers and chopped scallion
  • Dice shredded carrots and add to mixture
  • Add chopped parsley and gently mix
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • Top with goat cheese
  • I didn't mix the mayo in until I was ready to make a wrap. I left the mixture in a bowl during the week and just added a small amount of mayo to a cup of the chicken salad each day I made a wrap and sprinkled a few sesame seeds in.

You can also spread a thin layer of avocado hummus on the wrap then add your cup of chicken salad (mixed with mayo) to the wrap. I chose a healthy mayo and the added small amount of hummus gave the wrap a little extra flavor. A few pieces of lettuce made this favorite chicken wrap complete along with low carb potato chips. Try mixing everything together in a bowl at the beginning of the week minus the mayo and you will be amazed at how your lunches will be readily available and healthy to-boot!
