I love McDonald’s Snack Wraps. They’re a guilty pleasure of mine. Not for a snack, they’re a bit much for that, but for lunch occasionally. However, I don’t like the way they make me feel when I eat them. Like a heavy, greasy, unhealthy bomb in my stomach.
So now I make a cleaned up vegetarian version at home. These probably still aren’t the healthiest things, but I love them anyway. They don’t make me feel gross and have more flavor then the McDonald’s version.
Vegetarian Style Chicken Snack Wraps
I’m not certain vegetarian chicken patties qualify as real food, but they're pretty darn tasty! I far prefer them to real chicken patties.
1 box MorningStar Farms Chik Patties Original
4 Mission Multi-Grain Flour Tortillas, Medium Soft Taco
Fresh baby Spinach
Onion, thinly sliced
Bleu Cheese, Ranch, or Honey Mustard dressing (My favorite is bleu cheese, Jesse's is ranch)
Freshly cracked pepper
1. Cook Chik Patties according to package directions. Oven method works best, and use convection if you have it for crispier breading.
2. Place the tortillas on a plate and cover with a paper towel. Microwave on high until warm. About 30 to 45 seconds.
3. Slice the chicken patties into strips. Arrange one patty's worth of strips on a tortilla and add spinach, onion, a drizzle of your preferred dressing, and some pepper. Fold the bottom upward so the stuffing doesn’t come out. Then roll into burrito shape. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Makes 4 snack wraps.
