Mega Chicken, Kale & Quinoa Salad Wrap

Ingredients

Ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 5oz cooked chicken breast (chopped into pieces)
  • 1 whole grain flour tortilla (I used one made with rolled oats and seeds)
  • Salad:
    • 1 cup wilted kale
    • 3/4 cup spinach (heirloom or regular)
    • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
    • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
    • 1 tablespoon raisins (or your choice of naturally dried fruit)
    • 5 tablespoon chopped walnuts
    • 1 tablespoon shaved almonds
    • 1 tablespoon chopped mint
    • 1 tablespoon feta (or goat cheese)
    • Juice from 1/2 lemon
    • 2 tablespoons of Bragg Hawaiian Dressing & Marinade (or your favorite low calorie vinaigrette or dressing)
  • Garnish
    • Balsamic glaze
Steps
  1. Cook a batch of quinoa according to the instructions given on the package, then set it aside.
  2. Spray a skillet with olive oil and set it on medium high heat. Toss in chicken breasts and season them with a little sea salt and pepper.
  3. Once the chicken has finished cooking, remove the chicken from the skillet and allow it to cool down before cutting it into pieces.
  4. In the same skillet, toss in chopped kale with a few tablespoons of water. This will help to wilt and soften the kale. Do not overcook the kale – no more than two minutes. Remove the kale from the skillet and allow it to cool down to at least room temperature.
  5. Place the kale in a bowl and toss in the remaining ingredients for the salad. Mix the salad together using tongs, ensuring that the entire mixture is covered in the salad dressing.
  6. Dump the contents of the salad onto the whole grain tortilla and then add the chopped chicken breasts.
  7. Garnish with balsamic glaze then roll the tortilla to create the wrap.

*Remember to adjust portions and ingredients to complement your diet and fitness goals.*
