This chicken mushroom wrap is a tasty and easy recipe ready in under 30 minutes, perfect for a quick midweek dinner or your lunch-box meal prepping.
We spread fibre-rich wholemeal tortillas with a creamy mix of hummus and smoked paprika and then filled them with tender cubes of chicken and juicy mushrooms sautéd in spicy oil, garlic, and white wine.
What is so great about this recipe, apart from being a bomb of creamy deliciousness? We have combined healthy ingredients to make a balanced meal that provides slow energy-releasing carbs, lean proteins, and gut-friendly fibres.
Each wrap comes in about 500 calories and covers only 16% of your recommended daily intake (RDI) for carbohydrates, and will give you over 90% of your RDI for proteins and 50% for fibres. Pretty awesome!
By swapping plain white tortilla wraps with wholemeal seeded alternatives, you'll enjoy a burrito lower in carbs and higher in fibres. Fibres help to slow down digestion, fill you up for longer, and decrease the rate at which blood sugars are released in the bloodstream.
Mushrooms are a low-calorie food with zero fats and cholesterol, also rich in B vitamins, precious nutrients that regulate metabolism and body functions.
Adding hummus to this chicken burrito brings up the number of proteins making this recipe perfect for gym-goers or those on a high-protein diet. Proteins make you feel full for longer helping you consume fewer calories later in the day.
Great both warm and cold, this mushroom wrap has many health benefits, and you can make it gluten-free using corn tortillas or other wheat-free wraps. Also, for a vegan alternative, swap diced chicken with cubed tofu and you're good to go.
