On the lookout for a new wrap for yourself or for the kids lunchbox? These Asian Chicken Wraps are super easy to assemble! Made with deli-sliced chicken, edamame, green onions and a bagged salad kit for a super simple and easy lunch.
Who says a bagged salad kit can only be used for salads? Once in while I stock up on a few different salad kits to have before dinner or for a lunch I don’t have to think about. With a few other simple ingredients, you can turn an Asian chopped salad kit into these yummy wraps that are perfect to pack in lunchboxes. We used a low-sodium deli-sliced chicken for this recipe (more on picking a better lunchmeat here) but leftover grilled chicken or this slow cooker shredded chicken works well too. You could even use turkey meat too if you would prefer!
Nutrition Tip: Sources of protein like edamame, promote feelings of fullness, so you’ll satisfy cravings faster and feel fuller longer.
I have been craving something a little different for my mid-day grab and go lunch and wanted to try something new. Last week we had our Southwest Chicken Wraps and I figured I would try a different chicken version. These Asian Chicken Wraps are tasty, easy, and pack well for lunch. The Asian Chopped Salad kit is one of my favorites so is usually in the refrigerator. I grabbed that out along with some deli sliced chicken breasts and we got to assembling these wraps. And yes, the kids did help.
Key Ingredients for these Asian Chicken Wraps
- Deli Sliced Chicken Breasts (or even turkey would work)
- Asian Flavored salad kit
- Whole Wheat Tortillas or Wraps
- Green Onions
The kids are always happy to help me make wraps for lunch because they are easy. I let them assemble, pick out items they do or don’t like, roll, and slice. So however your kids want to help let them. The more variety in their lunchboxes, the better. Kids and adults alike get bored with the same old things in their lunchbox, so having them help create new ideas keeps everyone happier (and healthier, too).
How to make these easy Asian Chicken Wraps
First prepare the salad according to the package directions. Then mix in the edamame and green onions.
Next lay the wrap on a flat surface. Top with chicken and salad. Roll up and cut in half. Then of course you can pack up everyone’s favorite fruits and sides.
What are edamame?
Edamame are young soybean pods that are great cooked or as a snack. They are loaded with a lot of protein and fiber in a little shape. They are known to be good for your heart health, great for strong bones, and can even help aid in weight loss. So grab some for new recipes like this one or even just to snack on throughout the day!
