Thai Wraps

I guess I should probably post something healthy, just to prove that I can after the last several posts. This is another one of those, use up your leftovers things and it was just perfect. The chicken that had been cooked several days ago, may have just gotten a little old if we had to eat it plain again for yet another night, but this spiced it up just nicely. Plus, as an added bonus, I think from the time I opened the fridge to when we sat down at the table was less than ten minutes. Not a word of a lie. 

I first tried this creation at a friend's place. It was one of those, we need something quick but impressive sort of nights. So thanks Shannon for the great idea.

Makes: 4 Wraps


2 C. Chicken, diced (and cooked any way you like it.)
1 C. Carrots, grated
1/2 Long English Cucumber, cut into matchsticks
1/4 - 1/2 Red Onion, thinly sliced
1/3 lb Rice Noodles (these are typically bought in 1 lb packages)
1/4 - 1/2 C. Sweet Thai Sauce
4 Wraps


~Cook your chicken however you prefer, (we just used leftover chicken that we reheated) then cut it up into small slices.
~Cook noodles according to the package instructions.
~Prepare vegetables.
~Place wrap on a plate and microwave for 10 seconds to soften.
~Lay all ingredients down the centre of the wrap and roll it up.
