Asian Chicken Wraps

I thought I’d start the week out with an easy and delicious dinner idea. Lately I haven’t been very good about planning my meals for the week. I think it is a combination of being out of town, being an empty nester and a little boredom. In fact, my sweet husband, who never complains mentioned after two nights of take out that he was looking forward to a home cooked meal. I had been out of town for 5 days and he had to fend for himself. So today’s recipe is what I made for that home cooked meal.

My usual solution to the boredom is getting out the files of recipes I’ve saved, the cookbooks and of course checking out my boards on Pinterest .for a little inspiration.

Today’s recipe for Asian Chicken Wraps is one I found in one of my files – the original recipe inspiration from Ellie Krieger.  Today you get the Homebased Mom version!

The secret to this recipe is in the sauce – it is a yummy Asian flavored sauce.  The filling for the Asian Chicken Wrap includes chicken, mandarin oranges, red peppers, almonds and cabbage.  Lots of fun flavor and crunch.

The sauce which gives it great flavor is a combination of Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, soy sauce, dijon mustard, sesame oil and Thai-style chili sauce and a touch of sugar.

I made the wraps using a lavash bread (which I bought at Trader Joes) but it could easily be done with a tortilla or served in pita bread.  I sent the leftovers to work with my husband in pita bread because it is a little easier and less messy to eat that way.

The sauce is just drizzled on the bread.

And then you layer on the other ingredients.  I also have a tutorial on how to cook chicken for recipes like this.

Roll it up and you are good to go.  Cutting it in half may make it easier to eat!
This is one of the recipes that it is easy to change up depending on what is in the refrigerator.  I think the sauce would taste good on just about anything!

Enjoy an easy and delicious dinner this week with Asian Chicken Wraps!  The recipe below makes about 3-4 wraps depending on how full you fill them.

    Thank you so much for the sauce’s recipe. I totally agree about it contributing a lot to the taste. Much more is that it is an Asian recipe which I can relate.

    Leigh Anne:
    needed to do a lunch at church for 300.
    Was thinking about doing pulled bbq chx on bavarian pretzel rolls and then doing the asian chx salad on croissants.
    Saw you did a meal at church for about 300.
    What do think about the options for a leaders lunch? What do think portions/quanity would need to be for your asian chicken recipe?
    would love any other suggestions you might have.
