Now, I have shared my familyâ€™s favourite chicken wrap recipe,Â Chilli Chicken, but I thought you might like to know some of the other easy chicken marinades that we use. Â Iâ€™m going to share links to these recipes on my family recipes site,Â Plate4Eight.com, otherwise this post could go on forever. Â Of course, we donâ€™t go to the trouble of marinading chicken for just one or two wraps, we might use the chicken for a meal the night before, or for a couple of lunches that week. Â You can even freeze some for later use if you like. Â That way it is cooked and ready to go, giving you a few more options on those days when you just donâ€™t know what to pack.
Our latest discovery isÂ Pollo Asado, a light, citrusy (is that even a word?) recipe. Â Sounds fancy doesnâ€™t it, but I can assure you it is as simple as chips, and because the flavour is great yet not overpowering, Â the kids loved it.
I have been makingÂ Aprilâ€™s Chicken MarinadeÂ for about 10 years now, Â my husband and sons take it on their yearly Space Pilotâ€™s Camp. Â You can use it for bbqâ€™s, stir-fries, and of course, lunches. Â Just make sure you use a low-sodium Soy Sauce or it might be a bit too salty. Â Itâ€™s also a great freezer-friendly recipe if you are looking for some meals to stash in your freezer to feed your family on those crazy nights.
Honey-Soy Glazed ChickenÂ is another favourite, it uses only 2 ingredients, and is really best used for chicken drumsticks because then the kids get to revel in itâ€™s glorious stickiness, but for sandwich and wrap purposes I prefer to use chicken breasts.
I have more, but if I share them all at once, I could be here all day, so these are the ones we use most often because I know the kids love them, and they wonâ€™t come back in their lunch boxes at the end of the day. Â So, I will leave you with these, I hope you like them.
And donâ€™t forget that all-important ice-pack to keep your chicken cold until lunch time.
