Chicken and Mozzarella Wrap

    Search Small Steps Parenting
    Lower in gluten content than other snack options, this chicken wrap won’t cause a big energy high only to crash later. The combination of ingredients is high in protein, antioxidants and flavour! The watercress gives a big iron hit alongside the spinach, red onion is great for cardiovascular health and a little chilli gives the digestive system a boost. Leave the mozzarella out for a dairy-free alternative or replace with goat’s cheese.

    How to make Chicken and Mozzarella Wrap
    1. Prepare and cut the chicken into small chunks. 
    2. Then, in a frying pan, heat the olive oil and fry the seasoned chicken over a high heat for approximately 4 minutes until browned on all sides and cooked through.
    3. Turn the heat down to medium and add the garlic so it softens but doesn’t burn.
    4. Put a thin layer of the grated mozzarella on the tortillas, then spoon the other ingredients (cooked and raw) out evenly on top.
