Wholemeal Chicken and Vegetable Tortilla Wraps

I've never been one to take have a cold lunch but this chicken and vegetable wrap is a definite winner in my book! This is an easy sandwich to take just about anywhere and it's easy and quick to put together too. If you're after a relaxed meal, this is the solution; of course it always helps to use whole wheat tortilla bread. The whole wheat tortillas I used to make these delicious sandwiches are homemade; I'll write up the recipe soon.  
Yes this wrap is a healthy alternative but can I just point out that using low fat mayonnaise or sauce would be better. The wrap and filling may be healthy, don't go adding on unnecessary calories.

Prep time: 10 minutes                                      Serves: 2

What you need:
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chilli powder and garlic powder
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 red onion
  • Parsley
  • Light mayonnaise 
Method:
  1. Sprinkle chilli powder and garlic powder onto chicken then heat up oil in a non-stick pan.
  2. Fry the chicken for a couple of minutes, it cooks very quickly. 
  3. Add the peppers to the pan so they warm up then pile onto the wraps with the chicken,  grated carrots, sliced cucumber, chopped red onion and parsley.
  4. Add mayonnaise and serve!
Enjoy!
