Curry chicken wrap


I was the kid in school who had lunchables envy. My mother absolutely refused to purchase this for us as kids no matter how much we begged and pleaded. She always said it had way too much salt and sugar and was unhealthy. To this day I have never tasted the contents of a Kraft foods lunchables lunch. lets put an end to lunchables envy and make our own. It’s the start of a brand new school year I decided to dedicate this month to great lunch ideas;  yummy foods that both adults and kids will enjoy.

This post had to be separated into two parts due to the fact that I wanted to use roti to make my wraps. Tortilla wraps will do just fine, but if you want these wraps to be extra delicious take the time and make some roti flat breads for your curry wraps. Click here to get the link to the most perfect roti recipe which I found online.

If you like curry you will definitely enjoy this lunch. There is a lovely array of veggies in the mix, add some strawberries and raisins on the side and you have got a lunch, something to really envy.

P.S. If you love my little lunch tray/plate check the end of the post to get one too

Ingredients (printable recipe)

½ lb Chicken breast tenderloin
½ teaspoon Seasoning Salt
½ teaspoon Black pepper
½ teaspoon Garlic powder
2 tablespoon Oil
1 tablespoon Curry powder
½ Carrot
½ small onion
1 small Sweet pepper
½ cup Coconut milk
½ teaspoon Sugar
½ teaspoon Salt
Tortilla or roti


  • Slice the peppers, carrots and onions into thin strips (see how here)
  • Slice the chicken breast into thin strips
  • Season with seasoning salt, black pepper, garlic powder
  • Heat the oil in a sauté pan once it’s warm add the curry powder and cook until it becomes very fragrant
  • Place the chicken strips into the pan and sauté both side until they are brown and golden
  • Toss in the peppers, carrots and onions and cook for a minute
  • Add the coconut milk, salt and sugar and sauté until the coconut milk thickens
  • Allow the chicken to cool slightly before assembling the wrap
  • Place a bed of lettuce down then fill with the curry chicken sauté along with some coconut sauce
  • Fold over the front portion then fold in the two sides then finish rolling completely
  • Slice in half and enjoy!

Greedy tips:
  • If you want your carrots crunchy you don't have to cook them in the curry. Add them to the wrap raw. I do however recommend cooking the peppers with the curry because its adds a lot of flavor.
  • The raisins on the side can also be added in the wrap for a nice burst of sweetness
  • If you don't have the time to make the roti, feel free to use tortilla wraps or pita bread


Get yourself one of these cute little lunch trays/plates I got a small one and I love it, will be using it to display all my lunch ideas for the rest of the month.
