Homemade Sweet Chilli Wraps Recipe

Chicken Wraps – Easy Sweet Chilli Version

This Chicken Wrap recipe was inspired by a lovely new reader of Planning With Kids. Belinda Heard Draper shared on the Planning With Kids facebook page a Chicken Wrap recipe that feeds her family of seven, with even a bit left over for lunches.

I tweaked it a little as I am quite keen on sweet chilli flavours at the moment. I made our chicken wraps along similar lines to Belinda but with a sweet chilli twist. Thanks so much for sharing Belinda, my kids absolutely loved them and we have had them quite a few times already!

7. And as Belinda noted in her recipe if you cook up four chicken breasts you have plenty of meat left over for lunches. The kids had cold wraps in their lunch boxes the next day at school and just loved them!
