Super Quick Asian Chicken Collard Wrap

I am so excited to bring you something magical and delicious. My new Asian Chicken Collard Wrap is such an easy and flavorful lunch to throw together in a rush. When I created this wrap, it was missing something, so I began experimenting with a complaint Asian sauce and it turned out simply amazing. It’s not heavy and gives the chicken and veggies just the right amount of spice and flavor. 

I am a big fan of collard greens and have come to like them any way they are served. There is just enough bitterness that balances out a dish nicely. My new favorite way to wrap any protein is with a collard leaf. It is thick and will hold a lot of veggies and meat without falling apart.

Asian Collard Wrap

This Asian Chicken Collard Wrap was inspired by my love for sushi and it really does not disappoint. It is light and is a great option if you are needing to change up your lunch routine. Coconut aminos totally transform this dish to make it truly have that Asian feel. If you are craving sushi but are following Whole30 or Paleo, gives this beauty a try.

How to use this Asian Chicken Collard Wrap for leftovers or for meal prep lunches through the week?

To prep, prepare everything and store in a glass container and build before eating. For example, clean the collards and wrap in paper towels and place in a baggie. Store the veggies and chicken in a glass container and pre-make the Asian dipping sauce.
