Make Ahead Dinner Idea
Out of time and out of ideas for dinner? An Asian Chicken Wrap is the perfect quick and easy dinner idea. It is one of my favorite ways to use up leftovers in the refrigerator too. If you’ve got some leftover shredded chicken or other meat the wraps require no cooking or turning on the oven which is always a plus in the hot summer months.
They are also a great idea for a dinner on the go, they take only minutes to assemble. All you have to do is wrap it up and go. Wraps work great in lunches too. All the ingredients can be prepared ahead of time and all you have to do is assemble it when you are ready to eat.
You can use the specific ingredients in the recipe or you can get creative and use what is in your refrigerator and wrap it up!
How to Make An Asian Chicken Wrap
Wrap. 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.
Filling. The filling for the Asian Chicken Wrap includes shredded chicken, mandarin oranges, red peppers, almonds and cabbage. Lots of fun flavor and crunch. You can also make you shredded chicken in the microwave or in the slow cooker.
Sauce. The secret to this recipe is in the sauce, it is a yummy Asian flavored sauce. 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.
After adding all your ingredients roll up your wrap as tightly as you can. It will make it easier to handle and eat if it is rolled tightly. After rolling, use a knife to cut the wrap in half.
This is one of the recipes that it is easy to change up depending on what is in the refrigerator. I think the sauce is so good and would be delicious over any combination of ingredients.
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.
