Curried Chicken Salad Wraps

I'm always trying to come up with quick meal ideas that I can enjoy throughout the week. These wraps are so flavorful and simple to whip up at the beginning of the week so you can take them to work or throw them in a lunch box. These also work great for dinner with a side of sweet potato fries! I used low carb wraps, but you could use any wrap you prefer or collard green leaves for added nutrition.



1. Place chicken and ginger in a large pot and fill with water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook the chicken for 15-20 minutes, or until completely cooked through.

2. Meanwhile, combine mayo, sour cream (or yogurt), curry powder, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Add the cilantro, celery, green onion, cashews, cranberries and sunflower seeds and stir to combine.




3. Chop the cooked chicken and add to the bowl. Stir gently until just combined.


4. Lay each tortilla on a work surface and top with lettuce and a scoop of chicken salad. Roll up burrito-style and cut in half. Serve immediately.
