A Quick Afternoon Snack: Grilled Chicken And Hummus Wrap

Since we have already started to fire up our grill here at home, there have been plenty of left-overs to play with. I always bar-b-q a healthy amount of chicken then throughout the week add them to salads, or in this case to a wrap. I was so hungry this afternoon and didn’t have a lot of time to prepare a elaborate meal. I looked in my fridge and saw a tub of hummus, lavash bread, and some left-over chicken staring back at me. Within minutes I had myself a grilled chicken and hummus wrap, and the girl in me was so pleased. It made me think of my days in school when my Mom still packed me a lunch. This wrap works well when you’re in a hurry, or want something hearty and light as a snack.
