Really Simple Recipes for People Who Really Suck at Cooking. Really. - Grilled Chicken Wraps

Welcome to my new cooking series (HAH.. never thought I would type those words), "Really Simple Recipes for People Who Really Suck at Cooking. Really."

If you know your way around a kitchen, SWIM AWAY SWIM AWAY!

If you can burn water, please stick around!

Today we are talking about grilled chicken wraps. These are fun because they are easy, inexpensive, somewhat healthy, and best of all, you can put whatever the heck you want in them!

Here is what we had on hand last night for ingredients.

Also worth noting, my phone that normally takes really crisp photos must have had one too many Chardonnays last night because man these pics look blurry today. Guess the photos will have to be as sub par as the cooking. #bloggeroftheyear

1. Assemble your ingredients. Mine were:
  • Wheat tortillas. I really wanted sun-dried tomato or spinach tortillas but I couldn't find them in Kroger. So, wheat it was. 
  • Dressing. We went with Ceaser.
  • Lettuce. Again, any mixture you prefer. I've found the Hearts of Romaine are a good fit.
  • Cheese
  • Egg
Other things you can add:
  • Tomato
  • Cucumber
  • Bacon
  • Spinach
  • etc
  • etc

2. Boil your egg. 

Wouldn't you know it... I've never boiled an egg before! Shocking. So for other newbies like me, here's how. Put egg in pan, cover with water (even thought it floats), bring to rolling boil. Then remove from heat and cover with lid for about 13-15 minutes (for firm egg). After the time is up make some cracks in the egg and drop it in a bowl of cold water.

When you are ready to add it to the wrap, peel off the shell and voila!

3. Cook the chicken.

I used boneless breast tenderloins, cooked them in a pan with some olive oil. Once they were almost done, I cut them into pieces right in the pan (even though Tim told me not to). #rebel

4. Warm tortillas in the microwaves (read the instructions on the package).
5. Assemble your wrap!

Spread your dressing on the wrap first! Then pile on the lettuce, chicken, egg, cheese, etc.

It kind of ends up being a huge taco, so I like to grab some tooth picks to hold it together while I'm eating it. But regardless of how messy they are, they are yummy!

The grilled chicken wraps have passed my test for really simple recipes because it's quick, easy, and totally customizable!

I'll be back later this week for a Pioneer Women recipe I tried!


  1. Quick and easy- I like. Love the Pioneer Woman, can't wait to see what you made.

  2. I have never boiled an egg like that. So see? You were even helpful for those of us who consider ourselves decent chefs!

  3. In that case, this recipe is really really for me. Really. :)
    Thanks so much for sharing this. I think this is perfect snacks without the guilt.
