Staying healthy isn't always easy, especially when the weather is so cold and dreary. I know all I want to do is curl up with a big portion of french stick with gooey cheese - not the healthiest of options. The last thing I want for lunch is a large bowl of salad. So I've been looking for alternatives for weekend lunches that I'll actually look forward to eating. And I accidentally stumbled upon a super tasty healthy lunch that is warming on a cold dreary day.
Let me introduce, my chilli chicken and avocado wrap.
- 1 chicken breast
- Half an avocado
- Mild chilli powder
- Wraps - ideally wholemeal if you can get them as they're healthier
- Cubed chorizo
In terms of prep, slice the chicken breast up into fine strips. Take a wok, or frying pan, and put in some oil, garlic and mild chilli powder. Then throw in the chicken, and try until cooked, coating it in the chilli and garlic. Then add your chorizo. I used about a tablespoon of chilli powder, but it's up to you as to how hot you'd want it.
While this is cooking, warm the wraps in the microwave for a minute, and cut up your avocado. The spread it into the wrap. Then add your chicken, wrap and voila! Super simple, super tasty, and even healthier than other alternatives. Like french bread and cheese... The chilli gives it a warm kick that helps with the cold. Perfection.
