Greek feta & avocado wrap

This is a healthy substitution for those high fat wraps you find in restaurants.

– 1 whole wheat wrap
1/2 sliced avocado
1/4 cup low fat feta cheese
Lite Greek & feta dressing
Nitrate free chicken breasts slices( 3)

In a skillet over medium heat, place the whole wheat wrap until it’s brown on both sides. Once browned, lay to the side. In the same skillet, brown chicken. Once it’s done, place chicken in the wrap and top with feta cheese , and avocado. Then lightly put the Greek feta dressing on. I usually do 2 1/2 tablespoons. Wrap up and enjoy! This is truly delicious!
