Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper and Chicken Wrap
Swap the boring lunch sandwich for this wrap, and you may have coworkers asking where you bought it! Consider prepping multiple servings of chicken and roasted peppers ahead of time for easy meal prep to save time during busy mornings.
Number of servings: 2
Serving size: 1 wrap
- 4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips 1/2 inch wide and 2 inches long
- 2 10-inch flour tortillas
- 2 tablespoons hummus
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1 roasted red bell pepper, peeled and cut into slices
Spray a small nonstick frying pan with cooking spray. Add the chicken and saute over medium-high heat until the chicken is lightly browned and opaque throughout. Set aside.
Heat a dry, large frying pan (without a nonstick surface) over medium heat. Add 1 tortilla to the hot pan and heat until softened, about 20 seconds per side. Repeat with the other tortilla.
To serve, place a warmed tortilla on each plate. Spread 1 tablespoon of the hummus on each tortilla. Then add half of the chicken, lettuce, tomatoes and roasted pepper to make each wrap. Fold in the sides, fold the bottom of the tortilla up over the filling and then roll to close. Cut each wrap in half crosswise and serve immediately.

Sounds good but lots of ingredients, steps and dishes but when I get brave I'll give it a try or better yet I'll call the lady that occasionally cooks for me and see if she’ll do it.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Tell me more about what kind of recipes you're looking for. Did you know there is a "no cook" category of recipes on the website?
Gook link, thank you for posting it. A lot of ingredients in the recipes though.
I'm looking for the impossible. Very easy, few cooking steps, 2 or three ingredients, 1 or 2 dishes, preferably no stovetop or oven cooking. Microwave safer in case of seizure. I have a Vitamix and got a cookbook but most recipes have lots of ingredients and bowls and pans that equals dishes which I suppose would be OK if it would last more than a couple of meals or would be enough to freeze for later. Obviously I don’t like to cook.
A few ideas for you: Frozen entrees, crockpot/instapot meals (only 1 dish and often dump and done!), and a "college" cookbook. These tend to have limited ingredients and are often for a microwave. Hope this helps!
I have been using frozen dishes that are made by retirement home . They are delicious, heat eat and you are done.
