I find wraps to be one of my easiest weekday lunches while still delivering on the flavour. They are also one of the healthiest being a great source or fibre. Obviously the health comes in varying degrees depending on what I am jamming into it and I am a jammer, my wraps are always overflowing but they are a great option as the days warm up.
Mission recently sent me a box of their products including their Chia and Red Quinoa wraps and I have been loving having a supply in the house to concoct my own wrap experiments. Both are full of flavour but my favourite is the Red Quinoa because when I can get it I like my food “super”.
I have started to marinate a batch of chicken fillets and cooking them up at the beginning of the week which last me a few days of wrap making. I mix up the marinades because “variety is the spice of life” and all that. The only thing with that is the disaster that happens in the pan you are cooking it up in. However my mum showed me a trick using baking paper in your pan. Am I just slow onto this? Do you do this already? I will never be concerned with cooking marinated anything again. More on that below.
Satay chicken with Tzatziki is my latest wrap creation. Light and filled with flavour you can try it out yourself.
Satay Chicken with Tzatziki Wraps
- Chicken fillets (I normally cook up around 400g at a time which lasts a few wraps)
- Satay marinade
- Mission Red Quinoa wraps (Chia wraps work just as nicely too)
- Cos lettuce
- Tzatziki dip
- Coriander (because I love it but you can leave it out)
Chop up your chicken pieces into approx. 2cm square pieces and marinate in the satay for as long as possible. I normally do this in the morning so a couple of hours is great but if you only have 5 minutes that is fine too.
Line your fry pan with a piece of baking paper. Fold the edges under for safety, don’t allow it to be hanging out of your pan. Put the chicken in the pan on a medium heat until cooked through.
Load your wrap with the cos lettuce, cucumber and coriander. Place around 4 chicken pieces on top, or how ever many fits (I am greedy) and dollop Tzatziki over the chicken. Ok, looking at the above, make that 6 pieces of chicken.
Fold the bottom of the wrap up first and then fold both sides in. Eat up!
Check out how easy the baking paper makes clean up! Now that is how I like to cook. Thanks for the hot tip Mum!
Mission wraps are available at Woolworths and selected independent supermarkets. Check them out next time you are in the bread aisle.
