Chicken, ham and cheese … this is one of those combinations that just gets me excited. And the addition of honey mustard? It makes this quick and easy recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Wraps just perfect.
Ever since I made these wraps, Paige has been talking about them. These are one of the things she’s repeatedly listed as something she wants in her lunch box this year. Good thing: they are among the new recipes I created for that purpose.
Making these wraps is simple — just layer the ingredients in a tortilla. I like the cheese, ham, honey mustard, chicken order. But you can do it however you like.
Then wrap them up. The great thing about these wraps is that you can make them in advance.You could totally whip up a batch of these the night before for lunch boxes the next day. I wouldn’t make them more than a day or two in advance though.
If you are eating at home, these are great served with warm chicken inside. But they are also really fab served cold — which, again, makes them perfectly lunch box ready.
Now … if I can just get lunch box packing ready we will be all set … are your kids back in school yet?
