What does a chicken wrap contain?

A chicken wrap typically consists of a tortilla or flatbread enveloping seasoned and cooked chicken pieces, often accompanied by various fillings and sauces. Common ingredients include lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese, and dressings like mayonnaise or ranch.

Depending on the recipe or place of origin, chicken wraps can also contain other veggies, beans, rice, or even fruits like pineapple or mango for a tropical twist.

Are chicken wraps healthy?

The healthiness of chicken snack wraps depends largely on the ingredients used and the method of preparation. A wrap made with grilled chicken, fresh vegetables, and a light dressing on a whole wheat tortilla can be a nutritious choice. It provides protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

However, if the chicken is fried or the wrap contains high-calorie dressings and cheeses, the health benefits can decrease. As with any food, moderation is key, and it’s always best to be mindful of portion sizes and the ingredients being used.

Is chicken wrap junk food?

The term “junk food” generally refers to foods that are high in calories but low in nutritional value. Whether a chicken wrap falls into this category depends on its ingredients and preparation. A chicken wrap made with fried chicken, heavy sauces, and wrapped in a refined flour tortilla might be considered less healthy.

In contrast, a wrap with grilled chicken, lots of veggies, and a light sauce on a whole grain wrap would be a more nutritious option. So, while not all chicken wraps are “junk food,” some versions can be less healthy than others.

Ingredients

  • 250 g 250 chicken breast (enough for 2 servings)

  • Chicken seasoning: 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp of Herbes de Provence.

  • 100 g 100 yellow cheddar cheese (feel free to opt for gruyere, gouda, or a harder mozzarella variant)

  • A handful of fresh coriander leaves

  • 4 4 tortilla wraps

  • 100 g 100 Greek-style plain white yogurt

  • 25 ml 25 double cream

  • 2 tbsp 2 fresh dill (or 1 tbsp dried dill)

  • 2 tbsp 2 fresh parsley (or 1 tbsp dried parsley)

  • 1 tsp 1 garlic powder

  • 1 tsp 1 onion powder

  • A pinch of salt and black pepper each

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 olive oil

Directions

  • Warm a grill pan over medium heat and add the olive oil.
  • Season the chicken breasts using the seasoning mix and place them on the grill pan. Ensure they’re grilled for 3-4 minutes on each side until thoroughly cooked. Once done, slice them into bite-sized pieces.
  • As the chicken grills, combine fresh dill, parsley, white yogurt, and double cream in a bowl. Stir in the garlic and onion powders, and season with salt and pepper as per your preference.
  • Grate the cheese and finely chop the coriander leaves.
  • Lay out the tortilla wraps, and fill them with the grilled chicken, coriander, and cheese. Drizzle with a generous spoon of the ranch dressing and roll them up burrito-style.
