Ok you guys. The people have SPOKEN!
When I first started this blog about 7 months ago (holy cow time flies) I was saying “this blog will be all about baking and baking only.”
I’ve had request after request for easy dinner recipes, and I aim to please, so dinner ideas you all shall have!
We’ve done things so far like an amazingly easy homemade weeknight pizza and a simple slow cooker nacho soup and just to keep your weeknights interesting I’m coming at you with this delish, versatile, minimal prep time chicken wrap!
There are a few different ways you can go about whipping this wrap up.
I like to put a couple of chicken breasts in the slow cooker, season them with taco seasoning, garlic, and cayenne, and just let them cook until I’m ready to stuff them in my tortilla.
You can absolutely also just season the chicken how you like and cook it in a skillet on the stove until it’s cooked through, then shred it up for you wraps.
If you already have left over chicken from another meal, even better!
Either way, quick and easy. I’d also recommend buying some pre-cooked bacon to have around for dinners like this one to make your life even more simple.
This wrap is full of shredded chicken mixed with spicy pepper jack cheese, slices of creamy avocado, and yummy bits of bacon. Pop it in a pan to crisp on each side for a few minutes….the easy, tasty, dinner of your dreams!
P.S. These also make great leftovers for lunch during the week!
