Chicken Bacon and Ranch Wraps

This is a photo of a wrap I was making for my oldest daughter to take to work with her for dinner one evening. The colors were so vibrant I just had to snap a picture to share with my readers. Doesn't it look delicious?

Our family loves wraps. They are so versatile. This particular wrap was using marinated, grilled chicken strips but the frugal housewife in me needs to remind you that if you have a hot charcoal grill and you are done cooking your dinner but the charcoals still have a lot of cook life left in them, throw some chicken breasts on the grill while you eat your dinner. When you are done eating grab them off the grill, wrap and freeze or wrap to use the next day if you want to refrigerate them. Even if they are not done! The idea is that you partially cooked them and got the grilled flavor into them. Now you can use them by finishing cooking in the microwave for a minute or two (if needed) and then slice and cool. Wha-la! Easy grilled chicken strips.

Chicken Ranch Wrap

Grilled or leftover chicken, cooked and diced or strips
1 wrap; flour tortilla or flavored tortilla wraps or flat breads
cheddar cheese - shredded fine
1 green onion, diced
ranch dressing
bacon, cooked and crumbled or *real* bacon pieces like Hormel brand

Add amount of dressing, cheese, etc. according to your personal taste. Roll up and tightly wrap with saran or plastic wrap and chill. If you have a chance, make these at least 6 hours ahead of time to let the flavors mingle and also help it to stay together better, but they can be eaten immediately.Print Friendly and PDF
