  • 1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 2 tbsp soured cream, plain yogurt or mayo
  • 2 tsp pesto



    Pesto is a generic Italian name for any sauce made by pounding ingredients together.


  • 2 thin slices mild cheese, such as Edam
  • 2 flour tortillas
  • handful chopped red pepper or sweetcorn kernels
  • lettuce leaves



    Lettuce are available in a vast number of varieties, and are either crisp or floppy, growing…


  1. Mix together the shredded chicken, soured cream, yogurt or mayonnaise with the pesto. Season.

  2. Lay a slice of cheese on each wrap, then divide the chicken mixture between them. Sprinkle with red pepper or sweetcorn, then top with the lettuce leaves. Be careful not to overfill or it will be tricky to contain all the filling. Wrap and roll each one, then pack in a lunchbox or tightly wrap in foil.

My children love pesto however the school have a 'no nuts' so are not allowed to take anything with nuts in just in case anyone has an allergy. We'll save this recipe for weekend picnics!
