    1-2 medium slices of wholemeal or ‘Best of Both’ bread

  3. Chicken wrap

    636x418 ChickenWrapWe all know how good leftover chicken is in a lunchox sandwich, so why not make it the best it can be for the kids? A tablespoon of cool, creamy yogurt or light mayo, some fresh, herby pesto and crunchy veggies all come together with the chicken to make the most simple yet delicious wrap.

    Ingredients

    15ml/1 tablespoon natural yoghurt or light mayo
    1 wholemeal tortilla wrap or 2 mini wholemeal wraps
    1 teaspoon nut-free green or sun-dried tomato pesto
    50g leftover roast higher-welfare chicken or turkey
    40g veg, such as shredded iceberg or gem lettuce, grated carrot or courgette, sliced tomatoes

    1. Spread the yoghurt or mayo over the wrap.

    2. Spoon the pesto down the middle of the wrap, using the back of the spoon. Pile the chicken down the middle, keeping it in a neat line, and top with the veg.

    3. Tuck in the sides then confidently roll the wrap over the filling until tightly wrapped up.

    4. Cut in half across the middle and wrap in foil or baking paper.
