Most supermarkets now stock a variety of wraps, but many of them are made from white flour. Check the ingredients and choose one with only wholemeal wheat flour. This simple yoghurt-based take on the more traditional sour cream gives you all the flavour with half the calories, but not with any more sugars.
200g natural Greek yoghurt
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp Herbamare salt
2 tsp butter
4 chicken fillets, cut in half lengthways
2 peppers, sliced lengthways
1 onion, sliced (or 1 bunch of spring onions, chopped)
4 big wholemeal wraps, or 8 small wraps
200g ready-made fresh salsa
200g strong Cheddar cheese, grated
1 bag of washed iceberg lettuce, shredded
dash of sugar-free soy sauce
finely chopped fresh coriander (optional)
lime wedges, to serve
Mix the yoghurt with the crushed garlic and Herbamare salt. Cover and set aside in the fridge until ready to use. Melt 1 teaspoon of the butter in a non-stick pan. Add the chicken and fry until cooked through, then remove from the pan. Cook the peppers and onion in the same pan until crisp. Keep warm. Heat the remaining teaspoon of butter in a chargrill pan. Press the cooked chicken fillets on it to give them charred lines on both sides. Add the tortilla wraps to the hot chargrill pan for a few seconds just to warm them up, taking care not to burn them.
Assemble the cooked chicken and vegetables in the middle of the wraps. Add the yoghurt dip, salsa, grated cheese, lettuce and soy sauce. Spoon in some guacamole and sprinkle with chopped fresh coriander (if using). Tightly roll up each wrap to close. Serve with a large side dish of vegetables or salad and lime wedges.
