Mango Curry Chicken Wrap

Well, this is a little bit hypocritical after my post last week on homemade chicken strips. Lured by laziness and a nice coupon from my latest Canadian Living, I purchased a box of Jane's chicken strips. I feel totally evil for doing this. I rarely buy processed foods and I know how terrible these things are - really! But the coupon was too good to pass up, I'm craving crap, and, as I mentioned, I'm feeling lazy.

Man, these were really, really good!

To assuage my guilt, I purchased, on sale, a mango. I've been craving curry for some odd reason. This equation added up to the inspiration for this dinner.

Mango Curry Chicken Wrap

First, I put the chicken on. Then, I mixed together 1 tbsp light mayo, 1/2 tsp curry paste, and a squirt of lime juice. I peeled, cored, and sliced a mango. I shredded some lettuce and chopped some cilantro. I got out a whole grain tortilla.

I spread on the curry mayo and laid down the mango, cilantro and lettuce, then put the cooked chicken on top.

This is where the "wrap" part turned a little sour. The tortilla was too small to wrap up all the filling, so I wound up with a roll instead. But still, it tasted seriously yummy and it was a really tasty, quick dinner.

I hope I will be forgiven for using purchased chicken strips! Feel free to do this meal with my homemade chicken strip recipe, though!

I know that we ALL have secret caches of prepared food for those nights when we're running behind.

Chicken Kiev is one of the few prepared foods I buy. I can't make it for what I can buy it for on sale ($1.25).

We buy these too. The kids love them, in a wrap, with salad, crouton, bacon bits & ceasar salad dressing. It's a quick weeknight dinner.
