And that's a wrap

Chicken Salad Wraps with Lemon Yoghurt

In our house, the question is not, "what is it?" But "can we put it on a wrap?
Wraps are relatively inexpensive and a tasty carb alternative to rice or potatoes or bread.
Wraps also freeze very well and are quick to defrost.
The only point of concern is when heating up the wrap for eating, only do so for a few seconds, as the longer is stays in the microwave the larger your chances of the wraps drying out and becoming crispy.

This is a quick an easy way to either use up leftovers from last night dinner (ie already cooked chicken or meat),
but if you are going to add salad try and make sure it is fresh as lettuce and veg tend to go bitter when older.
Keep your older veg for stewing.

Chicken Salad Wraps with Lemon Yoghurt 
makes 2 wraps
for the chicken:
1T olive oil
1T your favourite chicken spice
200/250g chicken fillet (skinless and boneless)

for the salad filling:
2 wheat wraps or tortillas

finely shredded red cabbage
20g salad leaves
1 medium carrot, grated
10g sultanas or raisins
fresh coriander (optional)
sliced red onion/ red salad onions (optional)

3 Tablespoons Plain Yoghurt
squeeze of lemon juice
finely grated lemon rind (optional)
pinch of salt

Chop the chicken into 2cm cubes.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the chicken. Stir well, and fry for 8 minutes. Add the spice and stir well. leave to fry for a further 2 to 3 minutes, until crisp and coated with the spice.

* Keep the heat to a medium at this stage as the spice tends to burn, and stick to the bottom of the frying pan*

While the chicken is frying you can wash, chop or slice all the salad ingredients and divide them into two portions.

When the chicken and the salad are ready. Place the wraps in the microwave to heat for 5 - 10 seconds (this depends on your microwave power - you only want to heat them up so they soften and roll easily).

Place the chicken and salad ingredient in the middle of the wrap, and add one tablespoon of yoghurt. Fold the wrap towards you, so it makes a semi circle, and then roll from the side away from you to form a cylindrical shape which is closed on the bottom.
