Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap

COVID-19 Movement Control – Day 34

We had leftover of Nando’s chicken from dinner yesterday. I decided to make this chicken wrap from it. A healthy food, using sour cream rather than mayonnaise and the taste is delicious.

During this MCO, I have tried several new things, more creative in whipping up a quick and easy meal from whatever in the fridge. Jamie Oliver has been my favourite as he has lots of simple, easy and healthy food that we can follow.
