This Chicken Wrap is one of my favorite summer lunches. Wraps feel more substantial than a salad, lighter than a sandwich, but just as fulfilling!

I eat a lot of chicken wraps during the summer, especially poolside. I love that they’re easy on the hips and there’s something so satisfying about picking it up and eating it like a giant cheeseburger. They’re so craveable!

There are so many ways you can mix up this easy Chicken Wrap – you can even make a batch Sunday and wrap it with a touch of sour cream or your favorite salad dressing the day of to enjoy all week!

Enjoy a delicious mix of fresh lettuce, freshly grated Monterey Jack cheese, juicy chicken, tomato, red onion, optional cilantro in a light fiesta ranch. Let’s talk about cilantro – do you love or hate it? I really like integrating it into salads and sandwiches in small doses for added flavor, but it seems to be divisive. Anyways, if it’s not for you, skip it, but I promise you it’s delicious!
