What are the ingredients required to make Chicken Wrap?
Here I am mentioning the ingredients which I have used to prepare this easy chicken wrap:
Chicken Breasts: I have used chicken breasts for the wrap. I found it easy to grill the whole breast and later shred them as per requirement. Also, when you grill the whole chicken breast, it remains juicy.
However, if you do not have chicken breast instead have bite size chicken pieces you can stir fry them instead of grilling and use in the wrap.
Lettuce: Fresh lettuce leaves are must for this chicken wrap. If you do not have fresh lettuce leaves, before adding them to the wrap, I would suggest to place them in ice water. This revives the not so fresh lettuce leaves.
Vegetables: You can add any vegetables of your choice. Onion is a must. Apart from that, I have added two colorful bell peppers. You can also add shredded cabbage, purple cabbage, tomato or any other veggies of your choice.
Tortillas: Tortillas are must to make wrap. Get good quality tortillas to make this chicken wrap.
Cheese: You can either use cheddar or mozzarella cheese for this purpose.
Seasonings: I have kept the seasonings simple like ground pepper, oregano, salt and red chilli powder. You can use seasonings of your choice.
Sauces: This easy chicken wrap has tomato ketchup. You can use BBQ sauce or Sriracha sauce. Also, I have used simple mayonnaise, you can use any flavor.
Oil: I have used olive oil. You can use any other vegetable oil or refined oil of your choice.
