Hey, it’s finally summertime. After months and months of frantic school year schedules, we busy parents need to cut ourselves some slack! While preparing a nutritious home-cooked meal is important for the well-being of any family, so is enjoying quality fun time together outside the kitchen. Personally, I have been spending an extra hour with the kids at the pool, gym or playing outdoor games without any worry of rushing back to get dinner going – and no, we are not ordering pizza or hitting the drive through on the way home!

Instead, I’m relying on the Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends and Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets I know are waiting in the freezer. Combined with a few other fresh ingredients in my produce bin, I have a super nutritious, protein-rich meal to serve my hungry boys in less than 15 minutes – and without turning on a hot oven or grill! My entire recipe for Chicken, Lentil & Veggie Green Wraps with Sriracha Ranch can be made entirely in the microwave. It’s so freakin’ awesome and easy that even my kids can make dinner and bring it out to me while I rest myself pool side on the chaise lounge.

I am so loving these Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends, there are four different blends that combine veggies with added protein from ingredients like lentils, beans, quinoa and such. The California blend used in my Chicken, Lentil & Veggie Green Wraps is loaded with lentils, broccoli and edamame – all which are surprisingly good sources on plant-based protein. In fact, these Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends are a great dinner solution for vegetarians.

However, my family is a bit more carnivorous – so, no surprise the fully-cooked Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets were a hit. These 100% all natural pieces of white meat chicken can be used creatively in countless recipes and boast appetizing, caramelized hatch marks that make each fillet look like it’s been pulled straight off the grill!

Wrapping up the chicken and lentil edamame mix in collard greens.

The recipe is so easy just add carrots to the protein blend and microwave — and reheat the chicken in the microwave too! Then pile it in fresh, raw collard greens, Swiss chard or kale and roll up!

Instructions
  1. In microwave safe bowl with lid, add protein blend veggie with carrots; toss together. Microwave for approximately 4 – 5 minutes on high, stirring halfway through.
  2. Set fillets on microwave-safe plate and microwave on “reheat” for 2 – 3 minutes or until warmed through but not scorching hot.
  3. Wash and dry four big leaves of collard greens and remove stems from below the intersection with each leaf. Also carefully cut and remove about 1” of stem up into each leaf with a paring knife – this will make “rolling” the wrap later easier.
  4. Spoon ¼ of the cooked vegetable mixture into center of each leaf, spreading out a bit while leaving plenty of room on the sides.
  5. Cut the fillets in half lengthwise to create two longer pieces of chicken. Place one piece of chicken on top of the vegetable mixture.
  6. To form wrap, fold tops and bottoms toward each other and keep secure with hands. Next, take one of the longer sides, fold over top of chicken and begin rolling into other side of leaf – secure with a toothpick. Repeat for remaining bundles.
  7. In small bowl, mix together ranch dressing and Sriracha sauce until well blended. Serve with wraps.

  1. OH THIS WILL BE PERFECT.
    I leave town for conference this week.
    back sunday
    parents are NOW ARRIVING SUNDAY.
    what time will you be by to make us dinner???

    extra chicken please….

    • well, since this recipe only takes 15 minutes — I’ll stop by an hour early — the first 45 for enjoying some patio time with your parents!

  2. Collard leaves are one of my favorite wraps! Also loving bok choy leaves for green wraps. When should I come over for lunch. Wait. Have I invited myself too often?

    Have an amazing Monday Jennifer!

    • I never thought about bok choy for wraps, thanks for the idea! And, my door is always open for you!

  3. Looks exactly like something I would make on a weeknight in our house.. my kids are still eating ice berg though ( I’m working on them) but they do love wraps and lettuce cups. Another great recipe!

    • Thanks Lisa! My husband’s favorite lettuce is iceberg and it drives me crazy 😉
