Miso Chicken Wraps

Posted 2013-10-13 by Annalisa Brownfollow
Wraps are such a quick, easy and portable lunch, dinner or picnic food. Depending on what ingredients you use, they can be incredibly filling and a healthy alternative to sandwiches or rolls.

Health conscious with the food I eat, I always buy wholegrain or rye wraps and use lashings of avocado as my spread. This provides moisture and is the binding ingredient for all other fillings. Let your imagination run wild with the myriad of different fillings you use or better still it’s a great way of using up leftovers.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy these wraps and the best part is that it’s not labour intensive. You simply lay out all the ingredients on small plates (tapas style) and let everyone assemble their own wraps.

Wraps are such an easy and quick meal. If youre pressed for time these are ideal as you can eat them on the run. Theyre a great picnic food as well.

Today the primary ingredient is chicken which I’ve spiced up by marinating in white miso paste. Marinating the chicken makes it extremely tender and adds an extra zing to the wraps - hope you enjoy.
