CHICKEN & SWEET POTATO WRAPS

(Hover image to see “Pin It” button)

In the course of my 80 Day Obsession journey one of my goals is to try new things and this recipe is one of them. HOLY WOW is it good. It’s SO flavorful and it’s different then anything I would normally each which is amazing! Well I eat everything in it but just never combined it before lol.

One of the biggest flavors that brings this dish to life is the dressing – Oh man it’s sweet and tangy all at the same time. Would be fantastic on any salad or wrap really but wow the flavors just work so well together.

Sweet potatos are one of my favorite foods lol – one of the reasons I was so excited to try this dish actually. Do you know how to make the PERFECT baked sweet potato? Let me tell you. Put the sweet potato in the oven, right on the rack – or on parchment if you don’t want dripping yucks in your oven LOL – but def right on the rack – no baking sheet. Also DO NOT preheat first. Put the potato in before – weird right? It’s amazing tho and something about this method just makes them amazing. Now that your potato is comfy, preheat the over at 400 and cook for about 45-60 minutes depending on the size. BOOM the PERFECT sweet potato. Your welcome 🙂

For the chicken, I made it easy and planned ahead the night before with a meal I made that used chicken. I simply made extra so I was all set for this lunch!

2 wraps is a serving so I experimented and did 2 different wraps. I did a romaine lettuce head for 1 and a Spinach Wrap for the other. I LOVE these wraps. They have a sweet flavor since they have apple in them and they are SO SO good with anything. I use them for breakfast a lot. Some eggs and avocado – Oh nom nom!!
