Simple Mid week Chicken salad Wraps and Spicy Wedges πŸ˜‹

As I mentioned, it was my first week back and 3 early starts are taking their toll… Β I need a quick fix meal.


After me making flatbreads yesterday, I found a pack of Aldi Wraps I intended to give to youngest to take back to Uni, so rather than waste them, tonight’s delight will be Crispy chicken salad wrap, with a side of spicy wedges.


As part of my Iceland haul, we bought some a bag of Crispy Chicken Breast Strips, a quick snack meal for the kids over the holidays,Β they didn’t use them, so I will πŸ€—


These just get chucked into a preheated oven for 20-30 minutes,



along with some par cooked and ‘wedged’ potatoes, which I have dusted with smoked paprika and olive oil.


I microwaved a potato for 5 minutes, then cut into chunks, then into a freezer bag, add a glug of olive oil, a teaspoon of smoked paprika and a pinch of sea salt, add the Potato to the bag then shake to coat.


then onto a lined Β baking tray and into the hot oven.


For the salad, all from Aldi, I have torn the leaves off of a Baby Gem Lettuce, sliced some baby tomatoes, the left over ‘pickled’ red onion, sliced cucumber


a bottle of blue cheese dressing from Christmas – all of this ready for Hubby and I to self assemble into warmed Wholemeal Wraps.


Easy peasy πŸ‘


Hope you are are warm and safe as the weather takes a turn for the worse x

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
