    Sweet potatoes have a creamy texture and a sweet-spicy flavour that makes them ideal for savoury…

  • 2 multigrain wraps
  • 200g cooked chicken, shredded (from Lemon & garlic roast chicken, see 'goes well with')



    While it's the traditional Christmas bird, turkey is good to eat all year round, though…

  • small handful salad leaves
  • small handful baby plum or cherry tomatoes, halved


  1. Mash last night’s sweet potato so that it's very smooth, then divide the mixture thinly and evenly between the wraps.

  2. Divide the chicken, salad leaves and tomatoes between each wrap.

  3. Fold the wrap and roll up, making sure that you contain the filling. Eat straight away or wrap in baking parchment and string (or foil) for later.

The sweet potato mash was indeed different and interesting but I knew the chicken would be a bit tasteless so I mixed up some no fat yoghurt with a little harissa paste (a tip I learned from another BBC GF recipe, now ALWAYS have both in the fridge) and drizzled it over the chicken. This rescued an otherwise tasteless wrap. It was filling too :)

I am slightly obsessed with this at the moment. I wanted a new lunch that didn't leave me bloated and this was perfect. The multigrain wraps do not cause me to bloat whilst the sweet potato gives moisture and the chicken and salad all come together well, also fills me until tea time! I now buy a whole chicken and roast and shred on a Sunday to have this all week in work!

I loved this sandwich. The flavours work so well together and the different textures really work. really great!

Delicious! I really liked the idea of using the mashed sweet potato. It made the wrap creamy without using a full fat dressing or dip. I just griddled mini chicken fillets to use as I had some in the freezer. Even my son liked it.

the Additional info on this recipe says its Gluten Free, but the multi-grain wraps in the buy ingredients list are mission deli which aren't gluten free.

Really liked the idea of using the left over mash in this wrap and it works well. Will probably reserve a little more next time as the quantity suggested left the wrap a touch on the dry side for my tastes.
