Last week I made pancakes from leftover mashed potatoes and this week I am making chicken wraps from leftover roast chicken as part of my no waste campaign. There are so many things to do with left over roast chicken like chicken soup and one of my favorite is chicken wraps.
I found this coconut curry chicken wrap recipe on whole foods.com and it has become a regular in my kitchen. The combination of green curry paste and coconut elevates the flavor of these wraps.
2 cups cooked chicken
2 strips cooked turkey bacon diced
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 green onions thinly sliced
1 handful cilantro
1 avocado diced
1 handful of cherry tomatoes sliced
2 tbsp green curry paste
2/4 cup coconut milk
2 cups lettuce
4 flour tortillas
– Mix coconut milk and green curry paste in a large bowl until smooth then add chicken, bacon, onions, carrots, cilantro and stand for about 30 minutes to allow flavors to combine.
– Fill warmed tortillas with chicken mixture followed by lettuce, avocado, tomatoes and a little Sriracha sauce if you you like it spicy.
– These are great with homemade carrot ginger juice and apples for a healthy lunch or just by themselves for a quick dinner.
