Chicken Club Wraps

There’s been lots of exciting things going on here at the homestead:  painting and organizing and converting spare bedrooms into “big girl rooms” and just plain nesting, I suppose.  So while I have been busy being neurotic, dinners have had to be bit less labor intensive..not that they required tons of work to begin with, but just extra simple these days.  This club wrap is one of our favorite fast and easy weeknight dinners.  To really quicken it up you could always use store-bought rotisserie chicken, but I prefer to roast my own.  It’s as easy and timely as running to the store to buy one and the taste is so much better.  I also love to use this method to roast chicken on Sundays, shred and use it for quick meals like this throughout the week.  If you ask me, a meal like this beats going out for a sandwich any day of the  week…both tastefully and nutritionally.  Pair it will a side salad or steamed veggie and you’re good to go!
