Since my Baby Girl started school this summer, I’ve got a few hours of “me” time during the day while both of my kids are at school. Yay…I finally got out of the night owl baking and posting habit, or maybe not. I still love the quiet time I have at night, it’s just different. That's my "Happy Hour", if you know what I mean.
What do I do with the “me” time during the day? Well, there’s something I’ve been planning and working on, but not quite ready for the revelation just yet. I’ll make an official announcement in the future. So, besides missing my kids tremendously, I've been spending more time cooking, baking, taking pictures (food, people, and scenic views, etc), and exercise. Yup, surprised by the last one? Me too!
Also, I get to enjoy preparing some simple lunch and dishes that I don’t usually get to make when my kids are around... such as this Spicy Chicken Wrap. So, don’t be surprised if you see more spicy recipes on my blog in the future. I love spicy food. Let me show you how to make it.
1) In a small bowl, mix the Japanese Mayo and Sriracha hot sauce together
2) Spread the spicy mayo on a tortilla wrap, leaving an 1/2-inch border
3) Place baby arugula in the center
4) Top with roasted chicken and tomato
5) Top with some radish for some crunch
6) Roll it all up and enjoy
It couldn’t be any easier than this, right? If you plan to serve this to your family, feel free to double or quadruple the recipe to make enough to share. If you have young kids or anyone in the family who don’t eat spicy food, substitute the hot sauce with ketchup. But I really love the spiciness in this wrap, especially pairing with the peppery arugula and radish. The chicken I used here was a left over roasted chicken drumstick from the night before. Simply warm it up in the microwave and remove the skin and bone before wrapping .
I really love this quick and easy recipe. Hm…I guess I might start a “Lunch for One” series with quick and simple recipes on my blog. Will you be interested to see more of this type of recipes? Please let me know in the comment below. I always love hearing from you.
