1/8 cup chopped cucumber
1/8 cup chopped tomato
2 -3 ounces cooked chicken
2 -3 leaves of romaine or iceberg lettuce
1 tbsp ranch dressing
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste (optional)
1 ten inch tortilla wrap
Chop the cucumber and tomato until you get 1/8 cup of each. Shred the lettuce leaves.
The cooked chicken can be chopped, sliced or shredded; which ever style is more appealing to the kids.
In a bowl mix the cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce and add salt and pepper to taste.
On medium heat place a non stick frying pan big enough to heat the tortilla wrap. Place the wrap in the pan and heat about 1 minute on each side. (If you are really strapped for time you can skip this step.)
Once heated remove from pan and thinly spread the wrap with ranch dressing. Now place the mixture in the middle of the wrap.
Fold in all sides of the wrap and roll up tightly, this keeps the filling nicely tucked inside. Cut in half before serving and garnish with some veggies if desired.
This recipe makes one wrap and serves 1-2 depending on age and appetite.
These wraps also go great with a cup of homemade soup on the side.
Many think of this chicken salad wrap recipe as a quick and nutritious kids meal but it really makes a good meal for the whole family.
