Chicken Sesame Ginger Wraps. Recently, my husband noticed a poster in the window of a nationally known sandwich shop. They were promoting a new item and it caught his eye immediately. His first comment was "you can make that. It would be perfect for your blog!".
That evening I put together these Chicken Sesame Ginger Wraps.
I knew I wanted this wrap to be as quick and easy as possible. While we were out running errands we went ahead and stopped at the store and checked out just the right ingredients for our chicken wraps.
- Tortilla shells
- Ground chicken (or turkey)
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Ginger (fresh and/or dehydrated)
- Power Greens (or spinach)
- Red onion
- Monterey jack cheese
- Sesame ginger salad dressing (store-bought)
How to prepare
First of all, I used a low-carb, whole wheat tortilla shell. It was much lighter than some flour tortillas.
For the chicken filling, I used a pound of ground chicken. I'm sure turkey would work great too. The chicken was cooked in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, minced fresh ginger, and a bit of dehydrated ginger for a little extra punch. Do not use ground ginger.

Next, we assembled the chicken wrap.
First, warm the tortilla. Then, add a nice base of power greens. You could also use spinach, spring mix, or whatever you prefer.
Now you can sprinkle a little red onion and shredded Monterey jack cheese. Next, add the cooked chicken and top with a bit of your favorite Sesame Ginger Salad Dressing.
A little bit of sliced up cucumber adds a wonderful texture and freshness.
And there you go. Chicken Sesame Ginger Wraps are a perfect, quick and easy summertime (or anytime) lunch or dinner. Another great go-to recipe to keep handy.
Now if you will excuse me, I'm hungry!
