INGREDIENTS:
• 2.5 chicken breast, boiled/cooked & chilled 
• 1 quinoa, cooked & chilled
• 1/4 ground walnuts
• 1/4 cup of Craisens (optional)
• 1/2 cup of light mayo
• 1 tsp Red Robin Seasoning (or salt/pepper)

TOPPING | FINISHING FLAVORS:
• 1-2 leaves of Rainbow Swiss Chard (or other green of choice such as romaine, spinach, or bok choy)
• Shredded carrots (optional)
• Chopped red onion (optional)
• high fiber, wrap

TOOLS:
• 1 medium size bowl
• Mixing spoon
• Two forks (to shred chicken)
• Small spatula 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Take left-over cooked chicken breast and place in a medium size bowl. Using two forks, shred (pull apart) chicken breast into smaller strips of meat.
  2. Add mayo, seasoning, quinoa, ground walnuts, Craisens, and stir until everything is incorporated.
  3. Lay out flat pre-made wrap. In middle of wrap, place 1-2 leaves of freshly harvested and cleaned Rainbow Swiss Chard (or other green of choice).
  4. On top of greens, place a small row of the chicken breast mixture. For added crunch, add a thin layer of shredded carrots. If you like red onion, sprinkle about a tsp onto each wrap.
  5. Fold in ends of wrap and then remaining sides until all sides of the mixture are contained (like a burrito). 
  6. Enjoy!

NOTE:
• When I make chicken breast in my Instapot, I always factor in 2-3 extra pieces for left over lunch the next day. It’s perfect for this recipe and feeds your family lunch or a simple dinner on the go. 
• Rainbow Swiss Chard, spinach and/or bok choy ensures you get a serving of nutrient-rich greens. To learn how you can grow your own rainbow swiss chard, spinach, or bok choy greens at home all year round, visit Grow Your Health Gardening.
