Asian chicken wraps are fresh take on plain old sandwiches. Chock full of flavor and crunch, these make a delicious lunch or the perfect light dinner.
When the sons are home during the day, especially when we are on a break from school, I like to step up my lunch game.
Let’s be honest.
A cold sandwich pretty much says school day lunch, doesn’t it?
But a wrap that’s just bursting with zesty flavors and so much crunch?
That says, hey, let’s enjoy ourselves.
And this Asian chicken wrap sends that message loud and clear with its yummy chow mein noodle topped chicken wrap that is just as easy as putting together a sandwich.
Add these to your rotation to spice up your lunch routine.
To make these wraps you’ll need:
- Tortillas– Medium sized tortillas work best here.
- Cooked chicken breasts– Thinly slice the chicken breast into strips. You could also use rotisserie chicken.
- General Tso’s sauce– You can find this sweet, sour and spicy sauce in the Asian foods section of your grocery store.
- Teriyaki sauce– Don’t have teriyaki sauce? Substitute soy sauce, a pinch of sugar and ginger.
- Veggies– I like to use chopped romaine lettuce and shredded carrots. You could use other lettuce if your prefer or even shredded cabbage.
- Chow mein noodles– These are optional but add so much flavor and crunch that I highly recommend them.
How to Make
What to Serve With
These wraps are a nice, light lunch or dinner option.
I like filling them out with some yummy sides.
They pair particularly well with:
You can also serve them with a big salad, side of veggies or a handful of chips!
If you are prepping these wraps ahead of time for the week, I would toss the prepared sauce with the chicken as described in the recipe.
Then I’d put the chicken and sauce in a sealed container in the fridge and refrigerate it for 3-4 days.
I would then build the wrap the morning I planned to eat it.
If I had leftover assembled wraps, I would wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and put the wrapped wraps in an airtight container.
Tips and Tricks
- Want to add a bit more heat to the sauce? Add a tablespoon or two of sriracha.
- Feel free to play around with the veggies. You could sub shredded cabbage or even add sliced bell peppers to this for more flavor and crunch.
- This recipe is a great way to use up leftover chicken.
