Sweet Chilli Chicken Wrap Ingredients

Here’s what goes in a chicken wrap

  • 1 tbs of olive oil – you could use rapeseed oil if you prefer.
  • 500g chicken breast – cut into bitesized pieces, you could buy the chicken breast mini fillets to save you having to chop up the chicken pieces.
  • 1 red pepper – roughly chopped – feel free to add in more veggies if you like – onions, courgettes or mushrooms all work well.
  • 3 tbs sweet chilli sauce – I use the milder sauce when cooking these for the kids – I usually use Blue Dragon Original as the sweet chilli chicken sauce.
  • 4 tortilla wraps – the large soft flour ones are best for this recipe – you could switch to wholemeal or seeded if you wish.
  • Bag of salad leaves – the kids prefer these made up with a crunchy salad mix – the bags with the Iceberg lettuce, red cabbage, carrot ribbons are a good choice.

Make sweet chilli chicken wraps your way

We’ve given you the basic sweet chilli chicken wrap recipe but there’s loads of different directions you can take it in to really make it your own.

I’m a huge believer in using what you have in, using up leftovers and switching ingredients to suit your own likes. You could try our chicken wraps with…

  • Make this recipe with chicken mini fillets if you prefer (this just saves on the chopping up of the chicken – you’ll just need to adjust cooking times to be a little longer to ensure they’re cooked through properly)
  • If you don’t like spice then skip the sweet chilli sauce and add a tbs of honey, maybe a tsp of wholegrain mustard or sprinkling of smoked paprika for a little heat. 
  • Add more vegetables – chunkily chopped onion, courgette or mushrooms all work well. 
  • Skip the wrap and serve on a bed of fluffy rice.
  • You could make chicken goujon wrap and use quick and easy breaded chicken goujons tossed in the sweet chilli sauce with stir fried vegetables.
