Quick BBQ Chicken and Salad Wraps

This is a fab, fast dinner that the kids love because they get to put it together themselves. The chicken in this recipe goes a long way so it’s really economical and can be substituted with pork or even your leftover roast. It can also be served cold, in a lunch box or on the run. Feel free to add other condiments such as tomato salsa or guacamole, whatever takes your fancy! This recipe serves a family of five.

Ingredients:
  • 8-10 large flour tortilla wraps (it really depends how full you stuff them!)*
  • 1/2 white onion, thinly sliced into half moons
  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced thinly into long strips
  • Splash of rape seed oil
  • 2-4 tsp BBQ seasoning (we like the ‘Old Elpaso’, smoky bbq, fajita seasoning)
  • 1 red pepper, sliced into sticks
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced into sticks
  • 2 spring onions, sliced into thin finger lengths
  • Finger length chunk of cucumber, sliced into sticks
  • Large carrot, sliced into sticks
  • 3 tbsp sour cream or natural yogurt
  • Small bunch chives (optional)

*My lot tend to pile in the fillings, so only eat one or possibly two wraps. If you make them with less filling (better for take-away), you may need more tortillas

Method:
  • Gently fry the onion in the oil until translucent
  • Add the chicken and continue to fry for a couple of minutes
  • If you prefer your peppers cooked, add them now (we like them raw)
  • Add the bbq seasoning and stir to coat
  • Continue to fry until the chicken is cooked through (should only take a few minutes as it is thinly cut)
  • Arrange the salad sticks on a plate, keeping some of the green ends of spring onion back
  • Chop the green spring onions and chives finely and stir into the sour cream or yoghurt
