Spicy Chicken Wraps

from my own brain
Mission Flavored Wraps (we like Sundried Tomato Basil)
Head of Lettuce (I like green leaf for these best)
Shredded cheese
Chicken -however you want it
Chopped tomatoes
Winger's sauce (you can buy a bottle from the restaurant)
Ranch

I like to broil the wraps on low for 1 minute on each side to get them slightly crispy. You just have to watch them very closely. I just set them right on the rack and flip them over when it is time.

In a bowl, toss desired amount of lettuce (enough for one wrap) with Ranch. Arrange down the center of one wrap. Sprinkle with cheese and tomatoes. Some people even like boiled eggs, cut-up, in their wrap.

For the chicken, I either cut up nuggets (the quick, cheap, easy way) or I cut up chicken into strips and egg and flour it and fry it up, or I use grilled chicken or you can use deli chicken breasts. If I do nuggets (which are Tyson's chicken breast tenders), I cook them in the oven on broil for 5 minutes on one side and another 4 or 5 minutes on the other side. I figure about 10 nuggets per wrap. I cut them long ways so they are like strips. I cut up 10 nuggets at a time and, in a bowl, I drizzle a little Winger's sauce over them. Arrange them over the lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes in the wrap. Carefully wrap up the wrap. I place two toothpicks in it, one at each end, and then cut it diagonally in the middle.

Repeat for each wrap. The wraps are pretty big. Brent can eat 1 1/2 or 2. I usually eat 1/2 or 1 depending on how hungry I am.

These are SUPER easy and fast.... if you go the nugget route. We like these for a Saturday meal.

***Lo-Fat tip: Use grilled chicken, not crispy. Use spinach leaves instead of green leaf lettuce. Use lite ranch. Go light on the cheese. Add in alf alfa sprouts if desired or any other veggies. Whatever you do, don't skimp on the Winger's sauce. That's what makes these so good!
