Are you looking for an easy lunch or dinner option? Are you wanting to use fresh ingredients? Are you working towards starting to cook more meals at home? I’ve got the recipe for you! These wraps are refreshing as they have a fresh lettuce wrap on the outside, fresh tomatoes chopped up inside, and are garnished with fresh cilantro for that elevated flavor. The chicken is perfectly seasoned, and the vegetables sauteed to perfection. You have got the crunch factor in the meal! I especially enjoy having this meal after the gym, and on days when I am out of ideas for what to cook as it has been a huge hit for me!
