Chicken Wrap

Veggie wrap again for lunch today.  I was lazy to cook last night because i went jogging for almost an hour and t'was so tiring, so I decided to just throw in something that’s easy to prepare and cook for my packed lunch the following day. So I thought :-(  I should have just grilled or boiled anything from the fridge and steamed vegetables, it could have been much (for emphasis) easier.

Grilling the chicken, chopping the tomato and onion, and then wrapping it with the lettuce leaves really made me irritable because it was so laborious and messy!  Either that or I’m just really grumpy.  Well, I’ve been grumpy, oh just moody, for quite some time already.

Anyway, I have to really practice wrapping using leaves.  I can’t even take picture of my wrapped food because it looks so mussy. Terrible.

Something healthy and filling are the considerations too for this dish.

Ingredients:

Lettuce leaves – 4 large pcs.

Tomato, diced – 1 medium

Onion, diced – 1 medium

Chicken fillet, skinless  – 100 g.

Sharon’s Herb Blend

Ground pepper

Olive oil – 1 tsp for greasing only

Cooking & Preparation Procedure

1)      Wash the lettuce leaves thoroughly and dry, Microwave for 1 min and 30 sec. or steam until it wilted

2)      Grease the grilling pan with the olive oil. Drizzle the chicken with the herb blend and ground pepper and grill until each side turns brown.

3)      Remove chicken from grill and dice.

4)      Combine the diced grilled chicken with the diced tomatoes and onion.  Add salt if you wish.  You can also add more of the herb blend and ground pepper.

5)      Arrange the filling on top of a lettuce leaf, wrap and roll.

Sauce: Vinaigrette Dressing ; Mayonnaise & chili sauce





This recipe makes 2 servings, so I have one for lunch and the other for my afternoon snack :-)

I actually used mayonnaise instead of the vinaigrette :D that's an additional load of 90 kcal calories and 5 mg. cholesterol, for 1 tbsp. STILL, the amount is small as I will be using half of it for my snack this afternoon
