I have added cheese to the chicken mix before wrapping. Sour cream or salsa can be used instead.

For vegetarian version, add more vegetables. Use sliced carrots, courgettes, tomatoes sweetcorn and lots more. Remember to start the cooking with crispier vegetables first. Example, carrots, peppers then courgettes.

Enjoy wrapping and eating!
