Chicken and Quinoa Lettuce Wrap

Friday!

Leftovers.

What do you do with your left overs?

I took some chicken, black beans, quinoa and romaine lettuce and made it into a little wrap.

Paired it with some cilantro, dashes of feta cheese and some fresh tomatoes.

It was good enough to eat.  As a matter of fact, I ate two.

Ingredients

  • Leftover grilled or baked chicken ( 2 breasts)
  • 1 Cup left over quinoa
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tomato , chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • Romaine lettuce leafs, washed
  • 3/4 Cup black beans, rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Method

  1. In a large sauce pan over medium heat, add olive oil and begin to warm thru the chicken.  After about 2 minutes add the black beans and quinoa.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and let warm for about 4 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Assemble the wraps starting with the romaine leaf.
  5. Add the chicken mixture.  Top with cilantro, tomato and feta cheese.
  6. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip:  Try not to be aggressive like I was, if you over fill the little wraps you are asking for trouble.  A little feta on your lap – if you know what I mean.  Keep it minimal and have two.

Have a great weekend.  Hosting a little party tomorrow morning from 10am-12:00pm.

Any cool and fun ideas to cook for it?

Email me or  leave it in the comments.  I will do the party recap on Monday.

Take care

Yummy, yummy, in the tummy! I gotta tell you, this sounds so good AND so healthy. I have chicken and I have quinoa just begging to be used in a recipe like this. Excellent photos, too.
