If lunchtime is going to go well (and by well, I mean that it won’t involve a bag of Doritos and a dill pickle), I need to have a plan. Typically that involves leftovers. This week I made a batch of Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry to reheat for easy lunches.

When there are no leftovers to turn to, I pull out some of my favorites from the “healthy lunch recipe” arsenal…Low-Fat Salmon Salad Sandwich with Capers or Low-Fat Chicken Salad with Curry & Apricots usually win out when I’m tired of turkey sandwiches with hummus.

Since I’m a sucker for Greek flavors – okay, for feta cheese and kalamata olives – it was time to come up with a quick Greek-inspired chicken salad wrap.

For wraps and burritos, we typically buy the large size low carb, high fiber whole wheat tortillas from La Tortilla Factory that we find at Costco (nope, this is not a sponsored message…we just love these tortillas!). Each tortilla only has 80 calories and 3 grams of fat, but also packs 12 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein.

If making a healthy lunch is complicated, it’s not going to happen. There are simply too many things on my to-do list to spend half an hour pulling together a meal in the middle of the day. So, I used meat from a rotisserie chicken and mixed up a two-ingredient yogurt sauce to combine with some veggies, olives and feta.

It beats Doritos and a pickle any day of the week!

This wrap looks sooooo delicious and flavorful. It’s putting my plans to eat leftover pasta for lunch to shame. ;)

Oh, believe me, leftover usually reign supreme around here. In fact, this recipe was made from leftover chicken!

Did you use any balsamic? I see it in the instructions but not ingredients.

I did! Thank you for catching that mistake. I updated the recipe to include the balsamic.

I’m such a sucker for leftovers – that curry sounds incredible and this wrap, yum! I am the same way, too – I need a lunch plan or its all down hill.
